Environmental Sciences Europe is included in the list of sources that are scanned to feature in the European Commission's Science for Environment Policy newsletter.
Aims and scope
ESEU is an international journal, focusing primarily on Europe, with a broad scope covering all aspects of environmental sciences, including the main topic regulation.
ESEU will discuss the entanglement between environmental sciences and regulation because, in recent years, there have been misunderstandings and even disagreement between stakeholders in these two areas. ESEU will help to improve the comprehension of issues between environmental sciences and regulation.
ESEU will be an outlet from the German-speaking (DACH) countries to Europe and an inlet from Europe to the DACH countries regarding environmental sciences and regulation.
Moreover, ESEU will facilitate the exchange of ideas and interaction between Europe and the DACH countries regarding environmental regulatory issues.
Although Europe is at the center of ESEU, the journal will not exclude the rest of the world, because regulatory issues pertaining to environmental sciences can be fully seen only from a global perspective.

A quote from the Editor-in-Chief
"Environmental Sciences Europe (ESEU) is the first SpringerOpen journal in the entire field of Environmental Sciences. ESEU is an international high-quality journal, focusing primarily on Europe, with a broad scope covering all aspects of environmental sciences and regulation as its main topic. The journal aims to bridge the gap between academia, industry and administrative bodies to report on developments in all aspects of Environmental Sciences, including both basic and applied environmental research, as well as regulatory issues.
ESEU has been developed from the journal Umweltwissenschaften und Schadstoff-Forschung (UWSF), which has been the most influential platform for environmental issues in the German-speaking DACH countries (Germany, Austria and the German-speaking part of Switzerland) for more than two decades.
The journal publishes a broad spectrum of scientific and non-scientific contributions, including reviews, research articles, opinion papers, presentations of projects, institutions and curricula, news on policy and legislation, and news on science and technology, as well as articles from its closely connected societies: SETAC Europe (German language branch), the GDCh Division "Environmental Chemistry and Ecotoxicology," and the VGöD (Verband für Geoökologie in Deutschland / Association for Geoecology in Germany."
