The articles published under the series to date
can be viewed here.
Previously unpublished case studies of corporate practice to be used for instructional purposes are particularly welcome and will be published in the Journal's "Applications and Implementation" section. An example of such a case study is "Going Organic: Converting Patagonia's Cotton Product Line" by Chouinard and Brown from volume 1, number 1 of the Journal and available online as a sample article.
Discussions of innovative methods for teaching
design for environment (DfE) and life cycle assessment (LCA) are also
of particular interest. Course syllabi do not constitute articles
in and of themselves for purposes of publication. Given
sufficient interest, the Journal will post syllabi and related
materials on this site.
