The vital, professional Journal that comes to grips with solutions to environmental problems.
The ONE professional Journal for: Scientists and Engineers, Government Regulatory and Policy Officials, Waste and Recycling Managers, Architects and Planners, Sociologists and Psychologists, Environmental Organizations, and all who are concerned with THE TOTAL HUMAN AND NATURAL ENVIRONMENT.
The only Journal of its kind, the Journal of Environmental Systems is an interdisciplinary forum for the environmental professions. The Journal examines environmental problems as systems in which complex natural phenomena affect, and are affected by, the human world of economics, regulation and law, and culture, behavior, and public perceptions.
The Journal is where environmental professionals from many disciplines exchange ideas on, and devise solutions to, problems in waste management, energy and resources, and local and global water, land, and air pollution. Join the worldwide readership of the Journal and have at your fingertips the definitive professional resource that integrates the human and natural dimensions of environmental problems and issues.
AIMS & SCOPE
The publisher's knowledge of the environmental, energy, and waste problems they face is burgeoning in many individual disciplines.
Yet the more the publisher seems to know, the more they realize that the territory of uncertainty is vast: They discovered, more and more, the bewildering complexities of environmental systems themselves, and find that they cannot be understood within the confines of individual fields of science and engineering. It becomes ever more evident that environmental problems can be understood only in the context of their social, economic, and regulatory "environments." There are lively, continuing disagreements among environmental professionals as to the basic theories, concepts, methods of analysis, and values that most fruitfully explore environmental issues and systems.
The Journal of Environmental Systems publishes articles of interest to working environmental professionals that, whatever the specific topic, in some way illustrate or shed light on these three themes. Articles range from case studies of particular environmental/energy/waste problems or technologies, to assessments of overall system environmental (or cost, risk, energy, etc.) impacts, to broad discussions of issues of theory, methodology, and policy. The emphasis is on practical environmental problems, such as recycling and waste minimization, but approached in ways that also pinpoint underlying theory and foundational issues.
