Call for Papers

The Intercontinental Journal of Environment and Development (IJED) welcomes original papers from
academicians, researchers and practitioners alike, and particularly encourages submissions that draw on
policy-oriented theoretical and empirical research focusing the interactions between the economy and the
environment, climate change, resource use, economic effects of environmental policies, costs and benefits
of alternative environmental policies, air pollution, water quality, toxic substances, solid waste, and global

The papers should generally be 6000-8000 words with abstract of not more than 200 words, though more
substantial papers will be considered. The contributions to IJED reflect the interdisciplinary emphasis,
which is fundamental to the journal. The papers will be double-blind refereed using an appropriate cross-
section of reviewers drawn from the target interests. The journal aims for a turn-around time of three
months from submission to publication to ensure rapid dissemination and dynamic discussion of ideas and
results. The Editor, therefore, welcomes early contact prior to submission of manuscripts with, for example,
an abstract. Book reviews are also included.

IJED will be of interest to academicians, researchers and practitioners working in interdisciplinary fields
across the social, natural and engineering sciences; policy and decision makers in national and local
government and relevant agencies, and non-governmental organisations. The Editorial Board provides a
unique mix of expertise from both the academic community and a full range of interested parties.

About IJED: Aims and Scope

The Intercontinental Journal of Environment and Development is an interdisciplinary, peer reviewed,
international journal covering policy and decision-making relating to environment and development
interrelationships in the broadest sense. Uniquely, its specific aim is to strengthen environment and
development research focusing on integration of social science input in planning, designing, and evaluation
and enhancing the competence in environment policy analysis. The focus of the IJED is on development
policy analysis, technology and sustainable development, institutions and reforms, etc. IJED also welcomes
the research papers in the areas of market failure and efficiency in resource allocation, externalities and
choices, common property resources, property right regime, open-access resource and environmental
degradation, risks of climate change, carbon abatement, environmental valuation, environmental
regulations, tradeable emissions permits, taxes and tariffs on pollution, dirty subsidies, and property rights
and transaction costs. The journal aims to provide a forum for imaginative and creative thinking around the
theoretical and empirical foundations of environment and development research.

The broad areas covered and their inter-relationships in informing decision-making and policy, therefore
include interrelationship between development and policy options. The Journal invites paper on the
synergistic linkages between environmental management and policy including ecological sciences,
economics, geography and planning, development and cultural studies. The journal invites paper focusing
on the interrelationships between environment, water resources and the climate system, the interactions of
these processes with human development activities and the development of sustainable environmental
policies and management. The journal invites original paper based on inter-disciplinary and trans-
disciplinary fundamental and applied research originating from natural sciences and social sciences aiming
to the advancement of environment, water and climate change policies and management practices at the
local, regional and global scale.

The contribution to the IJED should broadly focus on agro-ecology, carbon finance, climate change,
ecological economics, ecosystem marketplace, energy, environmental accounting, environmental credit,
environmental enterprise, environmental finance and investment, environmental pricing, environmental
tariff, green economics, green trading, environmental management, natural resource economics, eco-
entrepreneurship, renewable resource, environmental sustainability, etc.
