ISSN (Online): 1744-9936 -ISSN (Print): 1744-9928

We are always pleased to receive articles for our academic journal The International Journal of Green Economics which comes out 4 times a year with rolling deadlines, so you can always submit your papers, abstracts and ideas. It is academic, with Harvard style referencing, no footnotes, and is double blind peer reviewed. Many of our writers have enhanced their careers by publishing in our journal, for example obtaining promotion to Professor or becoming a Director of a major NGO or business and many other improvements to their careers or getting jobs they had always dreamed of.

There is a queue to get into this popular journal – the first and only one of its kind in the world. It is ground breaking and launched Green Economics globally.

We welcome diverse contributions and we especially like to welcome and help with contributions from new writers and innovative ideas and also from Professors and Nobel Prize Winners and anything in between. The writing and papers for the journal have to be between 2500 and 7000 words. We cover academic, polemic, simple and more complex writing, political, academic, campaigning and business styles of writing.

The journal is gender balanced and balanced between developing countries and developed country authors and also north south east and western Europe, Africa, Asia, and other areas. BRICS etc. It is also multi and inter disciplinary and also pluralist and heterodox. So please send in your articles as soon as possible. They can take several months to double blind review depending on the subject as many of them get reviewed by several subject specialists to achieve this ground breaking mix. Sometimes however papers can go through within a month.

Please ensure you cite any items you have not written yourself and photos must all be attributed to who took them. References must be Harvard style- and we do not accept footnotes and papers must be sent in .odt, or .doc formats, (not pdfs). Please ask for further information or guidance if you need it. Please ensure you do not infringe anyone else’s copyright.

All articles printed in this journal, become the copyright and are then owned by the academic publisher Inderscience, who produce the journal for us, so that the Institute and the author loose all rights to the writing and its use afterwards. Inderscience publishes the academic journal for us.

 

We are very keen to encourage new writers and new ideas as well as more experienced writers and academics and policy makers and business people and campaigners. All the issues are gender balanced and diverse and are written by people from all corners of the earth.

Objectives

The objectives of IJGE are to establish an effective channel of communication between policy makers, government agencies, academic and research institutions concerned with the running, involvement and impact of the economy on all sections of society. It aims to bridge the gap between academic economic theory and the literature and suggestions for the implementation of modern concepts in the political economy and the general economic debate, structures of political power and public discussion.

The development of an alternative view in contrast to the traditional normatively biased view of economics is the prime objective. The study of Green Economics naturally has to be very multi and interdisciplinary in nature, as the problems it addresses are partly social in aspect and causes, partly scientific in technical development, partly environmental as this is a fundamental limit to all human activity and partly economic and historical in how the current situations have evolved. Green Economics is also particularly influenced by developments in ethical thinking and values and in anthropology in its explanations of past and future trends.

The scope of IJGE includes examining, critiquing and analysing the activities of corporations with particular reference to the localisation/globalisation debate and making suggestions for change in practise and general function and approach. IJGE takes an international perspective, as modern economies are interdependent and internationally linked; the Green Economics discipline has therefore to be international in scope and in the solutions it proposes. The advisory board and activities are international in nature and the main management board consists of German, English, Brazilian and US personnel, with branches in Brazil and the US. The advisory board consists of a host of academics and practitioners, government members, policy makers and campaigners from round the world in order to meet the demands and the wide scope of the subject.

Readership

IJGE provides a vehicle to help professionals, academics, researchers, policy makers and campaigners working in the fields of international business, economics and local, regional and national government to educate, influence, lobby and share information and to learn from each others’ work and best practice in the field as well as to provide a forum to explore new solutions to economic problems.

Contents

IJGE publishes original papers, review papers, technical reports, case studies, conference reports, management reports, book reviews, notes, commentaries and news. Special issues will be devoted to subjects such as globalisation/localisation, international economics etc. Our wide and very experienced advisory board (which is additional to our academic panel) are particularly being asked to develop topical and important subjects over time which they believe from their work and research to be of most relevance and interest.
