How to publish in Chemosphere


If your research field is/are related to Chemistry (miscellaneous) (Q1); Environmental Chemistry (Q1); Environmental Engineering (Q1); Health, Toxicology and Mutagenesis (Q1); Medicine (miscellaneous) (Q1); Pollution (Q1); Public Health, Environmental and Occupational Health (Q1), then please visit the official website of this journal.


Acceptance Rate


The acceptance rate/percentage of any academic journal/conference depends upon many parameters. Some of the critical parameters are listed below.

  • The demand or interest of researchers/scientists in publishing in a specific Journal/Conference.
  • Peer review complexity and timeline.
  • The mix of unsolicited and invited submissions.
  • The time it takes from manuscript submission to final publication.
  • And Many More.

It is essential to understand that the acceptance rate/rejection rate of papers varies among journals. Some Journals considers all the manuscripts submissions as a basis of acceptance rate computation. On the other hand, few consider the only manuscripts sent for peer review or few even not bother about the accurate maintenance of total submissions. Hence, it can provide a rough estimation only.

The best way to find out the acceptance rate is to reach out to the associated editor or to check the official website of the Journal/Conference.


More Details

All papers should demonstrate a high level of novelty, originality and uniqueness. The following sections and subject fields are included:

Environmental Chemistry

This section will publish manuscripts dealing with fundamental processes in the environment that are related to the analysis, behavior, fate, and alteration of organic and inorganic contaminants focused on the dynamics of contaminants in environmental compartments such as water, soil, sediment, particulate matter, organisms, dust and indoor/outdoor air. Only studies that are of significance to an international audience, include sites of particular global interest, or lend themselves to interpretation at the global level should be submitted.

Topics of specific interest include, but not limited to, are:

  • All aspects of emerging contaminants, such as pharmaceuticals, pesticides, flame retardants, other industrial chemicals, persistent organic pollutants, endocrine disruptors, etc.
  • All aspects of trace metals, organometals, metalloids (e.g., arsenic) and radionuclides
  • Environmental fate studies including transport, biodegradation, bio-accumulation and/or deposition, atmospheric (photo)chemical processes, hydrolysis, adsorption/desorption
  • Transformation and mineralisation of chemicals (e.g., by bio- and photo degradation, redox processes and hydrolysis)
  • Novel environmental analytical methods including case studies
  • Environmental modelling and quantitative structure-activity
  • relationships to study fate and environmental dynamics
  • Monitoring studies presenting new strategies, report of novel contaminants, findings or interpretations of interest for an international readership.
  • Passive sampling
  • Non-target and suspect screening (e.g. effect-directed analysis)
  • Natural marine toxins

The following studies are not considered for publication: studies on (micro)organisms (unless chemicals are clearly involved), monitoring studies based on standard methodology, and/or only of regional importance, studies dealing only with nutrients in agricultural ecosystems, pesticide application studies, plant physiology studies, studies on improvement of crops and purely analytical methodology studies. As regards papers on air pollution, we focus on contaminants in air, particulate matter studies and also consider papers on NOX, SOX or ozone.

Toxicology and Risk Assessment

The section on Environmental Toxicology and Risk Assessment covers all aspects of toxicology, i.e., the science of adverse effects of chemicals on living organisms including humans, and the scientific risk assessment.

Topics of specific interest include, but not limited to, are:

  • Adverse effects of chemicals in environmental, aquatic and terrestrial, organisms
  • Similar studies in experimental organisms (under laboratory conditions)
  • Epidemiological studies on effects of chemicals in humans
  • Biochemical studies related to mechanisms of adverse effects
  • Toxicokinetics and metabolic studies on chemicals related to adverse effects
  • Development and validation of testing methods based on living organisms or biological materials
  • Nanopolymers, nanocomposites, and microplastics in the environment
  • Adaptation
  • Human biomonitoring
  • Elucidation of mechanisms of toxic effects
  • DNA and protein adducts
  • In vitro assays and omics techniques
  • Phytotoxicity

Not considered are, e.g., studies that report only concentrations of chemicals in the environment, living organisms, food or other materials etc. and studies on biochemical effects of chemicals non-relevant to toxicology.

Treatment and Remediation

This section deals with papers about technologies that manage and/or reduce environmental contaminants, including reuse and recycling processes. The technology must be beyond a basic laboratory study or have obvious implications for current or potential treatment or remediation technologies and, for example, for any advanced oxidation process, the intermediates and/or the extent of mineralization of the targeted compound(s) and wastes must be quantified.

Topics of specific interest include, but not limited to, are:

  • Advanced water and wastewater treatment processes and sludge management
  • Produced water
  • Drinking water
  • Incineration
  • Remediation including bio/phytoremediation employing new strategies
  • Hydraulic fracturing
  • Use of biochar amended soil to bind (e.g., herbicides)
  • Nanotechnology
  • Advanced oxidation processes
  • Photolysis/photocatalysis and electrochemical and photo-assisted electrochemical methods
  • Sonolysis/sonocatalysis
  • Mechanochemical destruction (MCD)
  • Natural treatment systems (riverbank filtration and aquifer recharge/recovery)
  • Characterization of natural and effluent organic matter
  • Technologies for recycle/reuse ( e.g., of microbial fuel cell techniques)
  • Gasification/pyrolysis for biomass-to-energy and energy recovery from waste streams

Not considered are studies that focus on the synthesis of new materials to be used in waste water purification or remediation. Studies focusing on the removal of single contaminants are often less interesting for publication.
