WATER, AIR, AND SOIL POLLUTION REVIEWS
Beginning in 1988 one volume of WASP (4 issues of 110 pages each) will be devoted to reviews. One issue of this Review volume will be published each quarter.
The technical areas include all the physical and biological processes affecting our flora, air, water, and solid earth in relation to environmental pollution. Because of its wide scope, the topics are diverse and include atmospheric chemistry of pollutants; deposition of air pollutants into water, and on vegetation and soil; heavy metals in water, soil, plants, fish, and so on; acid precipitation and all its effects; effects of oil spills; and ecological implications of pollution and pollution models.
A review article is a critical detailed examination and a contemporary synthesis of the state-of-the-art of a well-defined topical area. A comprehensive list of references is provided. It must be prepared by an expert in the area who is a good writer.
The objective is to publish reviews, morphologically covering the environmental pollution areas of interest every four to five years. This fills a gap between journals and books, and does not compete with either. A good review saves many users from a tedious literature search for and an evaluation of published papers and focuses attention on the state-of-the-art and key references.
The length of reviews should be a minimum of 20 pages and depends on the subject, literature, base, etc. Most reviews would probably be 30 to 50 pages in length.
The publisher will pay the author $ 7.00 per printed page for review articles. The Editor of WASP invites comments and suggestions. To ensure maximum dissemination of these valuable reviews, they will also be
gathered together annually and published in book form as a yearbook of reviews.
