Why publish with us?

We aims to offer some advantages researchers to increase the widest access and impact of their work.

Quality Peer Review

We believe that peer review is the heart of scientific publishing. Together with our editorial board from across the world, we aims to provide a constructive peer review process based on methodological soundness rather than "impact" or "novelty" for your paper.

In addition, RPES aims to have an international authorship and readership. Our journal will feature work on the environment from all over the world and is dedicated to promoting academic diversity. Thus, it facilitates international dialogue among researchers and engages issues related to the environment in local, national, and global contexts.

Some new journals use e-mail based submission system that slows and frustrates peer review process. We use ScholarOne Manuscript system that allows editors to manage the submission and peer review of articles. Thus we have the chance to deliver more faster reviews to the authors.

Fast Publication

We believe our editors of over 20 active researchers and editorial board of over 100 active members help us to fulfill this goal. It is expected that the review process from submission to first decision will be completed in two months depending on reviewers' feedback. Accepted papers are published online within one week.
