Bioanalysis of Environment Pollutants defined as Environmental analytics and monitoring which is the part of analytical chemistry which develops at the fastest rate. It can be distinguish as a spectrum of trends which can be classified into two basic groups: (a)methodological trends in environmental analytics and monitoring includes - dissemination of speciation analysis; use of total parameters to assess environmental pollu tion level; tendency to determine lower and lower analyte con centrations in samples of very complex matrix etc.(b)trends in the area of instrumentation which includes - new designs of sensors and detectors; introduction of coupled methods to analytical practice; computerization, automation and robotization of monitoring and measuring instruments etc.
Open access to the scientific literature means the removal of barriers (including price barriers) from accessing scholarly work. There are two parallel roads towards open access: Open Access articles and self-archiving. Open Access articles are immediately, freely available on their Web site, a model mostly funded by charges paid by the author (usually through a research grant). The alternative for a researcher is self-archiving (i.e., to publish in a traditional journal, where only subscribers have immediate access, but to make the article available on their personal and/or institutional Web sites (including so-called repositories or archives)), which is a practice allowed by many scholarly journals.
Open Access raises practical and policy questions for scholars, publishers, funders, and policymakers alike, including what the return on investment is when paying an article processing fee to publish in an Open Access articles, or whether investments into institutional repositories should be made and whether self-archiving should be made mandatory, as contemplated by some funders.
