Globally, the human population is becoming more urbanized. Populations are in closer proximity to sources of air pollution than ever before. This includes air pollution from large multi-modal transportation facilities, industry, and other anthropogenic area sources. Due to this closer proximity, concern over adverse health impacts due to air pollutant exposures has increased. As a result, there is a need to develop innovative techniques that can characterize near-source air pollution, analyse the results, and communicate those results to the public. The goal of this Special Issue on near-source air pollution is to highlight innovative research, measurement techniques, analyses, and model applications with an emphasis on the characterization of near-source emissions, deposition, and transport. Of particular interest are innovative approaches that include lower cost sensors, sensor networks, mobile measurement, and citizen science, and how these approaches may be used to inform research and regulatory entities, as well as the public at-large. This Special Issue represents an effort to capture current developments in the field and provide a forum for cutting edge contributions to the literature. Research papers, analytical reviews, case studies, conceptual frameworks, and policy-relevant articles are encouraged.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2300 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
