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. JIES is especially concerned with the relationships between science, society, and policy. One of the journal’s 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.
