Journal of Integrative Environmental Sciences

Journal of Integrative Environmental Sciences (JIES) provides a stimulating, informative and critical forum for intellectual debate on significant environmental issues. It brings together perspectives from a wide range of disciplines and methodologies in both the social and natural sciences in an effort to develop integrative knowledge about the processes responsible for environmental change, the impact of environmental change on nature and society, and possible solutions. The Journal is especially concerned with the relationships between science, society and policy and one of its key aims is to advance understanding of the theory and practice of sustainable development.

The subject matter, authorship and readership are international in scope and cover issues from across a range of scales, from the global to the local. As such, research pertaining to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is particularly relevant. Key themes include: integrated assessment methodologies; governance and regulation; technology and innovation; science, society and policy; and knowledge, perceptions and discourse.

A prerequisite for articles to be accepted is that they report on integrative research, where integration can be defined in different ways, for instance, integration across disciplines, societal sectors, scales, environmental issues, the cause–effect chain, or the supply chain.
