Journal of Environmental Sustainability

Journal of Environmental Sustainability - Volume 1, Issue 0

ISSN 2159-2519

Copyright 2010 by RIT CAST.  All rights reserved.

Today we launch a new professional, peer reviewed journal concerning environmental sustainability, which has been identified over the last three years as an appropriate professional goal for the environmental manager. Consequently, the Journal of Environmental Sustainability, is most appropriately hosted on this EnvironmentalManager.Org website.

We tend to almost always connect the word “environmental” with some kind of human impact on natural systems.  This distinguishes it from the word “ecological” which is characterized more by a concept of interdependence of elements within a system.  The basic understanding of the term “Environmental Sustainability” that we wish to set forth in this journal is essentially the expansion of the understanding of human environmental activity so as to connect it with the ecological concept of interdependence.  Environmental sustainability would then becomes a subset of ecological sustainability and somewhat of an expansion of concepts like industrial symbiosis.  And, while we can see this concept of environmental sustainability serving as a potent goal for environmental managers (this being a principal driver for creating this journal), it is also as bigger than that with broader applicability and importance.

Most likely that the authors initially contributing to the journal will come principally from academia, particularly from disciplines of environmental management, environmental science, and ecology science.  Indeed, the intent of the journal will in part be to raise the level of intellectual debate around the definition and boundaries of the basic concept.  The hope is that it might, in time, expand to include thinking practitioners who become involved in the application of the concept in their professional pursuits. .  It will of course require submittal to undergo appropriately sophisticated peer review and there might also be a parallel opportunity within the journal for reviewed graduate student authors papers.

This single posting serves as the zeroth issue and while lacking in substantive content, its important dual purpose is to: 1. announce a beginning for the Journal of Environmental Sustainability,  and 2. mark the use of its name.  

Issue 1 will be forthcoming within in 2011 and will identify and provide a more detailed description of it purpose, format, access, editorial board, etc.  In the meantime comments, questions, and suggestions are welcome and can be posted here.
