Noise Mapping is a peer-reviewed (single-blind peer-review), electronic-only journal that will promote and spread knowledge on noise mapping through the publication of high quality peer-reviewed papers focusing on the following aspects:
noise mapping and noise action plans: case studies;
models and algorithms for source characterization and outdoor sound propagation: proposals,
applications, comparisons, round robin tests;
local, national and international policies and good practices for noise mapping, planning,
management and control;
evaluation of noise mitigation actions;
evaluation of environmental noise exposure;
actions and communications to increase public awareness of environmental noise issues;
outdoor soundscape studies and mapping;
classification, evaluation and preservation of quiet areas.
The goal of the journal is to be the first and the main publishing option for authors writing on noise mapping and related topics, and a hub integrating the relevant research community in the field of environmental noise and soundscape studies. The journal is addressed to scientists, practitioners and public bodies representatives (for example environmental protection agencies) carrying out research and/or interested in environmental noise mapping, planning and control issues.
Papers concerning noise mapping of emissions by the following sources are welcome for publication:
airports and aircrafts;
harbours and ships;
leisure and night-life activities;
natural sound sources.
