Elsevier Launches Current Opinion in Environmental Sustainability

Elsevier has announced the launch of a new journal, Current Opinion in Environmental Sustainability. Available on ScienceDirect (full text of first two issues available at no charge for a limited time), the journal aims to address the scientific, economic, social, technological and institutional aspects related to the challenge of environmental sustainability by focusing on integration across academic disciplines and insights with implications for societal practices and processes.

Current Opinion in Environmental Sustainability was developed by the Earth System Science Partnership to ensure that specialists keep up to date with the expanding volume of information published in the interdisciplinary research area of environmental change and sustainability. The journal is divided into six major sections: Climate Systems; Human settlements and habitat; Energy systems; Terrestrials systems; Carbon and Nitrogen cycles; and Aquatic systems. Reviewed once a year, each section aims to cover the latest advances and trends on the environmental dimensions of sustainability and provides the views of invited experts on recent literature, with particular emphasis on articles published in the past two-three years.
