European Environment re-launches as
Environmental Policy and Governance in 2009

Dear Colleague,

Wiley-Blackwell and the ERP Environment editorial team would like to announce that the journal, European Environment, will re-launch from 2009, which will see the journal extend its scope and start a new partnership with the European Society for Ecological Economics (ESEE).

Renamed as Environmental Policy and Governance from Volume 19, No. 1 (2009) Print ISSN: 1756-932X and Online ISSN: 1756-9338 - the journal will continue to publish applied, policy relevant research papers but with a broadened geographical scope and an expanded focus on environmental governance issues from across the environmental social sciences and at the inter-face between the social and natural sciences.

The journal's editor Andrew Gouldson comments on the forthcoming re-launch:

"Since it's launch in 1991, European Environment has become established as a leading journal for applied environmental policy analysis in Europe. However, policy is changing, new forms of environmental governance are emerging and the associated debates are becoming much more international and inter-disciplinary in their scope. The re-launch of the journal - and our new affiliation with the European Society for Ecological Economics - will allow us to engage much more fully in these debates - and to strengthen our position as a leading international journal that publishes influential research papers on environmental policy and governance".

Call for Papers and Special Issues

The journal is currently inviting submissions of papers and proposals for special issues which reflect this new and exciting expanded focus of the journal.

The journal invites analyses that are at the forefront of academic debates and that are of practical significance and policy relevance. In particular, papers that draw on, and contribute to the further development of, disciplines such as international relations, politics, law, economics, sociology, management, geography, development studies and science and technology studies are welcome, as are those that integrate the environmental sciences into contemporary debates on policy and governance. It particularly welcomes policy relevant contributions from the field of ecological economics.

All papers will be double-blind refereed to the highest standards by the international, inter-disciplinary editorial board. We aim to give constructive feedback to submitting authors and to move accepted papers towards publication as quickly and efficiently as possible.

How to submit your research

The journal operates an online submission and peer review system that allows you to submit articles online and track their progress. The journal also offers Early view where your articles may appear online ahead of print, thereby increasing the readership and citation potential of your article.
