Aims & Scope


Open Journal of Air Pollution (OJAP) is an openly accessible journal published quarterly. The goal of this journal is to provide a platform for scientists and academicians all over the world to promote, share, and discuss various new issues and developments in different areas of air pollution.

All manuscripts must be prepared in English and are subject to a rigorous peer-review process. Generally, accepted papers will appear online within 3 weeks followed by printed hard copy. The areas of Open Journal of Air Pollution (OJAP) include but are not limited to the following fields:
