1. History

In 1997, the Viet Nam National University Ho Chi Minh City, Viet Nam established the Science & Technology Development Journal, with its first issue published in 1998. The Science & Technology Development Journal is a multidisciplinary and multi-field publication with 6 sections, including (1) natural sciences, (2) engineering and technology, (3) economics-law and management, (4) social sciences and humanities, (5) earth and environmental sciences, and (6) health sciences.

After 20 years of development, due to the high number of submissions and in order to introduce its works to the international community, in 2017, the Viet Nam National University Ho Chi Minh City decided to restructure the Science and Technology Development Viet Nam Journal into 7 journals, including the Science & Technology Development Journal continuing to publish articles entirely in English, transforming the 6 sections into 6 journals that publish mostly in Vietnamese.

The Science & Technology Development Journal: Science of the Earth & Environment (STDJ-SEE) was formed from one section of the Science & Technology Development Journal. This journal published its first issue in 2017. Since 2017, the Science & Technology Development Journal: Science of the Earth & Environment (STDJ-SEE) has become the official journal of the Institute for Environment and Resources, a member of the Viet Nam National University of Ho Chi Minh City, and is published by the National University of Ho Chi Minh City.


2. Focus and Scope

Science & Technology Development Journal: Science of the Earth & Environment (STDJ-SEE) (2588-1078) is an interdisciplinary platform dedicated to advancing our understanding of the Earth's systems and the complex interplay between the natural environment and anthropogenic influences. Our mission is to publish cutting-edge research that contributes to the global conversation on environmental sustainability, earth sciences, and the challenges facing our planet.



Our primary aim is to serve as a conduit for innovative, rigorous, and impactful research in the fields of geosciences, environmental science, and related disciplines. We are committed to fostering a comprehensive understanding of the Earth's processes, from its deep core to its atmospheric boundaries. By bridging the gap between diverse scientific communities, we encourage the exchange of knowledge and ideas that can lead to sustainable solutions for the environmental issues of our time.



The scope of the SDTJ-SEE encompasses a wide range of topics, including but not limited to:

- Climate change and its impacts on ecosystems and human societies

- Geological processes and their implications for the Earth's structure and resources

- Hydrology and the dynamics of the Earth's water systems

- Atmospheric sciences, including weather and climate modeling

- Biogeosciences, focusing on the interactions between biological, geological, and chemical processes

- Environmental pollution and remediation strategies

- Sustainable development and conservation practices

- Earth observation technologies and data analysis methods for environmental monitoring

We invite submissions of original research articles, reviews, brief communications, and perspectives that meet the high scholarly standards of our journal. Contributions should not only enhance the scientific understanding of the Earth and its environment but also propose pathways towards sustainability and resilience in the face of environmental change.

Through rigorous peer review and a commitment to open access, we aim to make significant contributions to the field and ensure that our findings are accessible to researchers, policymakers, and the public alike. Join us in our journey to explore the complexities of the Earth and its environment, and to contribute towards a sustainable future for our planet.
