Call for Papers:

Special Issue on Sustainable Consumption

Deadline: December 15, 2008

The Journal of Industrial Ecology invites International Society for Industrial Ecology (ISIE) members to submit articles for a special issue on Sustainable Consumption by December 15, 2008. Guest editors for the special issue are Arnold Tukker (TNO), Oksana Mont (Lund University), Klaus Hubacek (Leeds University) and Maurie Cohen (New Jersey Institute of Technology)
Following on previous special issues on industrial ecology and sustainable consumption (vol . 9, #-1-2) and priorities for environmental product policy (vol . 10, # 3), the new special issue will mainly focus on changes/differences in individual consumer behavior with respect to environmental impacts, tools, projects, and theoretical constructs and will build on the best papers of the March 2008 SCORE conference. The EU-funded Sustainable Consumption Research Exchange (SCORE!) network is the major scientific network that analyses changes to sustainable consumption and production (SCP) in relation to policy efforts such as the UN 10 Year Framework of Programs on SCP. 

The editors of the special issue have invited submissions of selected papers from the 2008 SCORE conference.  This announcement is a request for papers from ISIE members that were not presented at the SCORE conference.

How to Submit
Manuscripts should be original, previously unpublished, in English, and between 3,500 and 7,000 words in length. Submission implies that the manuscript has not been submitted for publication elsewhere and that it will not be submitted elsewhere while the review process is underway. All submissions will be reviewed according to the Journal's standard single-blind peer review process. Papers should be submitted electronically via Manuscript Central at <>. Please indicate that this is a submission for the "SCP" issue on the author checklist during the submission process. Details about the preparation of the manuscript can be obtained from the Journal's web page <> or from the editor.
