Clean Technologies and Environmental Policy

Focusing on Technology Research, Innovation, Demonstration, Insights and Policy Issues for Sustainable Technologies

ISSN: 1618-954X (Print) 1618-9558 (Online)


This journal publishes papers that aid in the development, demonstration, and commercialization of cleaner products and processes as well as effective environmental policy strategies. As its title suggests, the journal has two major thrusts: Clean Technologies and Environmental Policy. 

The Clean Technology thrust addresses the science and engineering of clean technologies. Moreover, it examines mathematical and computer-based methods and models for designing, analyzing, and measuring the cleanliness of products and processes. The Environmental Policy thrust covers research advances in scientific, social, behavioral, and economics disciplines that are relevant to complex environmental policy issues. 

In addition to research papers, the journal offers policy-oriented commentaries from world renowned leaders in environmental technology and policy research. It also features special issues focusing on topics of international concern. 

While articles published in the journal will still continue to be indexed in Thomson Reuters WoS (ISI), the journal did not receive an Impact Factor for 2015 because of the high number of citations by our authors of previously published articles in the journal (self-citations). We are currently working with all our new authors to avoid unnecessary self-citations. As soon as the rate of self-citations is brought down for 2016, the journal will receive an Impact Factor during the next year.

Clean Technologies and Environmental Policy will present the following yearly awards as nominated by the Review board:
1. Best Paper award - The recipient will be awarded a plaque and a onetime monetary prize of
EUR 1000. In the case that the recognized paper has multiple authors, each author will receive a plaque while the prize of EUR 1000 will be shared equally among them.
2. Outstanding Paper award - The recipient(s) will be awarded a plaque.
Members of the editorial board who are nominated for the best paper award will not receive any monetary compensation.
