Focus and Scope
International journal of sustainability research (IJSR) Sustainability probes the interactions between global, social, and human systems, the complex mechanisms that lead to degradation of these systems, and resultant risks to human well-being. The journal provides a platform for building sustainability dialogue as a new academic discipline which can point the way to a sustainable global society by facing challenges that existing disciplines have not addressed. These include endeavors to simultaneously understand phenomena and solve problems, uncertainty and application of the precautionary principle, the co-evolution of knowledge and recognition of problems, and trade-offs between global and local problem solving. The journal encourages multidisciplinary contribution revolving around sustainability issues and critiques. The journal is a peer reviewed published quarterly. The journal promotes science-based predictions and impact assessments of global change, and seeks ways to ensure that these can be understood and accepted by society. Sustainability Science creates a transdisciplinary academic structure and discovery process that fuses the natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities
