Sustainability: Science, Practice and Policy

Sustainability: Science, Practice and Policy advances understanding about sustainability transformations of societal systems and seeks to catalyze social innovations that enable these transitions. Papers published in SSPP recognize that global climate change and other socio-environmental challenges require system-scale reinvention to ensure universally sufficient availability of energy, mobility, housing, and food.

Aims and Scope Instructions for Authors Submit


Established in 2005, Sustainability: Science, Practice and Policy is a highly trusted venue for the publication of research and reflections on the social and political challenges of achieving absolute reductions in energy and resource consumption while fostering local and global equity. The journal encourages a range of perspectives and invites contributions from scholars, policy makers, advocates, and others that address the challenges of newly envisioning lifestyles for a sustainable future and formulating strategies that encourage institutional reinvention and deeply seated processes of social change.
