    Special Issue on Particulate Matter Pollution Research


    Particulate matter (PM) has been linked to a range of serious respiratory and cardiovascular health problems. Each day the average person breathes about 15,000 liters, or approximately 35 pounds, of air. Gaseous and particulate contaminants in that air gain access to the body with each breath, and may have both short and long-term effects on human health. The goal of this special issue is to provide a platform for scientists and academicians all over the world to promote, share, and discuss various new issues and developments in the area of particulate matter pollution research.


    In this special issue, we invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles that explore particulate matter pollution research. In this special issue, potential topics include, but are not limited to:


    • Sources of atmospheric particulate matter
    • Monitoring of PM2.5
    • Harm of PM2.5
    • Control technologies
    • Size distribution of particulates
    • Control of pollution source


    Authors should read over the journal’s Authors’ Guidelines carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


    Please kindly notice that the Special Issue” under your manuscript title is supposed to be specified and the research field “Special Issue - Particulate Matter Pollution Research” should be chosen during your submission.


    According to the following timetable:
