Abstract

Environmental Modelling & Software (EMS) is a highly ranked (IF: 4.177) Elsevier scientific journal that publishes contributions, in the form of research articles, reviews and short communications, on recent advances in environmental modelling and/or software. The aim is to improve our capacity to represent, understand, predict or manage the behavior of environmental systems at all practical scales. The topical scope of EMS is intentionally broad, which has the effect of attracting many hundreds of submissions per year. However, a large portion of these submissions do not fit within the journal scope in terms of the type and quality of contribution. Indeed, EMS has become noted as one of the top “methods” journals in the environmental science field. As such the editorial board is seeking submissions that provide strong methodological advances in both modelling and software. In this presentation, Editor-in-Chief Dr. Dan Ames will discuss the scope of the journal and will share the 5 most common reasons why research articles are rejected from EMS. Many of these concepts are applicable to other scientific journals and can be used to help authors improve their publication success rate in generally – as well as in EMS specifically. This presentation was delivered in Nanjing, China on September 20, 2018.
