Modern instrumentation has allowed us to push back the frontiers of detection such that we are able to determine incredibly small amounts of natural and anthropogenic pollutants and contaminants in our environment, whether they are in our homes, workplaces, cities, the countryside or the oceans. The fact that we can detect these pollutants in minuscule amounts does not necessarily mean that the levels present in the environment are harmful to our health or well being, but it does drive world-wide legislation on these substances. Therefore, there is a requirement to monitor, ascertain the sources, prevent the release, develop better detection methods and make properly assessed scientific judgements on the toxicity, exposure and risk assessment of the pollutants to which we are exposed in our daily lives. The Royal Society of Chemistry has recognised the importance of these 21st century requirements and that it is essential to promote and disseminate the knowledge of newly developed technologies for monitoring our various environments. Therefore, they have launched the Journal of Environmental Monitoring (JEM) which is dedicated to assessing exposure and health risks through the latest developments in measurement science. The first issue of the journal was published in February 1999 and subsequent issues will be published bimonthly thereafter. JEM is unique in that it aims to publish all the relevant information on this subject area in one source. This journal is intended for environmental and health professionals in industry and officials from governmental and regulatory agencies as well as research scientists interested in the environment.
