This international journal is created to encourage the exchange of information and experience on all legal, administrative and policy matters relevant to the human and natural environment in its widest sense: air, water and soil pollution as well as waste management; the conservation of flora and fauna; protected areas and land-use control; development and conservation of the world's non-renewable resources. In short, its coverage includes all aspects included in the concept of sustainable development.

For more than three decades Environmental Policy and Law has assumed the role of the leading international forum for policy and legal matters relevant to this field. Environmental Policy and Law is divided into sections for easy accessibility. These sections cover the activities of the United Nations and its specialized agencies, other international developments, regional activities within the framework of European Union, AU, ASEAN, etc., and developments at the national level from all over the world. An important and distinctive feature is the publication of selected documents appearing with the minimum of delay, which are not easily accessible, such as the resolutions from non-public meetings of parliamentarians, guidelines or draft conventions not yet published or newly concluded agreements.

Environmental Policy and Law fills a gap left by other publications. Subscribers are politicians, government officials at the highest level of decision-making, academics, scientists, practising lawyers, firms, and private persons wishing to keep up to date on contemporary policies and practices.

PREPARATION OF MANUSCRIPTS

Organization of the paper and style of presentation
Manuscripts must be written in English. Authors whose native language is not English are advised to seek the advice of a native English speaker, before submitting their manuscripts.

International Science Editing offers a language and copyediting service to all scientists who want to publish their manuscript in scientific peer-reviewed periodicals and books.

Manuscripts should be prepared with standard margins, submitted in “Times New Roman” font size 12, single spaced throughout. Every page of the manuscript, should be numbered. However, in the text no reference should be made to page numbers; if necessary, one may refer to sections by title only (not by number). Try to avoid the excessive use of italics and bold face.

Footnotes and Endnotes
The only footnote in the article shall be the “author footnote(s)” giving the author’s title and affiliation in three sentences or less. Each author shall have a separate author footnote. Author footnotes shall be numbered by superscript symbols, beginning with *

Citations shall be noted as endnotes, numbered as 1, 2, 3, etc. Lengthy endnotes should only be used if absolutely essential. In most cases it is possible to incorporate the information in the text. Lists of References will substitute for endnotes, but should not be additional. References that are not mentioned in text will be deleted. Separate Bibliographies should not be submitted.

Endnotes should be numbered in the text, indicated by superscript numbers and kept as short as possible.

ILLUSTRATIONS AND FIGURES

Authors are encouraged to submit figures, tables, photographs and other illustrations for inclusion in the publication, and are responsible for any necessary permissions relative to use of these materials (see below). EPL may, in some cases, include relevant illustrations and figures, selected with attention to the content of the article.

Quoting from other publications
An author, when quoting from someone else's work or when considering reproducing figures or table from a book or journal article, should make sure that he is not infringing a copyright. Although in general an author may quote from other published works, he should obtain permission from the holder of the copyright if he wishes to make substantial extracts or to reproduce tables, plates or other figures. If the copyright holder is not the author of the quoted or reproduced material, it is recommended that the permission of the author should also be sought. Material in unpublished letters and manuscripts is also protected and must not be published unless permission has been obtained. Submission of a paper will be interpreted as a statement that the author has obtained all the necessary permission. A suitable acknowledgement of any borrowed material must always be made.
