Aims and scope

Sustainable Environment and Business is an international refereed, online open access journal which publishes to advance understanding of environmental sustainability in order to serve as a bridge between academic and practitioner communities and guide policy and management practice to achieve environmental sustainability. All articles must relate to the concept of environmental sustainability and fall into one of the following five categories: Research: Peer-reviewed articles presenting the results of original research. Synthesis: Peer-reviewed articles presenting new understandings constructed from previously unconnected elements. Insight: Peer-reviewed articles presenting new ways of looking at existing concepts or practices by providing new perspectives or challenging underlying assumptions. Vision: Peer-reviewed articles exploring plausible alternatives for the future. The journal also publishes occasional special issues. Its special thematic issues contribute to the confrontation of scholarly perspectives on overlooked problems – a must-read for faculty, doctoral and graduate students.
