Description

Environmental Science & Policy advances research in the intersections between environmental science, policy and society. The journal invites scholarship within this broad thematic that fits with one or more of the following four focal areas: 1) Studies of the relationship between the production and use of knowledge in decision making; 2) Studies of the relation between science and other forms of environmental knowledge, including practical, local and indigenous knowledge; 3) Analyses of decision making practices in government, civil society, and businesses and the ways that they engage environmental knowledge; or 4) Research that presents environmental research with a clear perspective on pathways towards policy action and impact. Research can address a wide number of environmental issues, such as climate change, food systems, biodiversity loss, human and ecological well-being, resource use- and extraction, land use change, and sustainability more generally. The journal aspires to achieve an appropriate balance between perspectives from the global North as well as the global South and welcomes discussions of (environmental) justice, equity and inclusion. The journal is particularly interested in cutting edge developments in inter- and transdisciplinary work on co-production; arts-based research; integrated nexus and landscape approaches; the trade-offs and synergies between environmental issues and policies; innovations in integrated assessment, monitoring and evaluation; and transitions and transformative change.



Editorial Policy: Submitted articles can offer empirical analysis and case studies and can also advance new theory, conceptual frameworks or other innovations. To be considered for publication, articles should fit with the aims and scope and the journal. This means that they should address the relation between environmental science and knowledge, policy and society, going beyond simply stating potential societal and policy relevance. Submitted articles should be of international relevance and well embedded in relevant international scientific debates, and they should build upon the scholarship that has been published in the journal. They should provide a convincing objective and specify how they advance the state of the knowledge beyond the current state of the art. Specific case studies or local issues may be considered if articles identify their wider international significance.
