Special issues

The Journal of Vietnamese Environment aims to promote dedicated results from environmental research in Vietnam by publication of special issues. These are similar to regular issues with the exception that they contain either papers selected from workshops and symposia or papers that address a common thematic. Technically, articles published in special issues undergo the same review process and do not differ qualitatively from papers published in regular issues.

The special issues provide great opportunities for organizers of conferences to boost the impact of their event and attract more interest from the participants. In most cases, the event organizer will appoint a person who will act as Guest Editor and takes care of manuscript selection, contacting reviewers and generally making sure that the papers comply with the Journal’s aim and scope, and respects internal quality criteria. The Guest Editors will receive instructions on how to organize the workflow and will be assisted by the Editorial Team during the entire publication process.

For requests regarding the initiation of a special issue, please contact us.
