We invite you and your colleagues to publish your most exciting new work in this important peer-reviewed journal dedicated to all aspects of the environmental justice movement. Submissions are encouraged on a rolling basis.
Environmental Justice (www.liebertpub.com/env) welcomes papers on:
•The adverse health effects on populations that are most subject to health and environmental hazards particularly those related to climate change, global warming, energy/power generation, food production and food access
•The protection of socially, politically, and economically marginalized communities from environmental health impacts and inequitable environmental burden
•The prevention and resolution of harmful policies, projects, and developments and issues of compliance and enforcement, activism, and corrective actions
•Multidisciplinary analysis, debate, and discussion of the impact of past and present public health responses to environmental threats, current and future environmental and urban planning policies, land use decisions, legal responses, and geopolitics
•Past and contemporary environmental compliance and enforcement, activism, and corrective actions, environmental politics, environmental health disparities, environmental sociology, and environmental history
•The connection between environmental remediation, economic empowerment, relocation of facilities that pose hazardous risk to health, selection of new locations for industrial facilities, and the relocation of communities
•The complicated issues inherent in remediation, funding, relocation of facilities that pose hazardous risk to health, and selection for new locations
We strongly encourage interdisciplinary papers that draw upon research from public health, engineering, history, philosophy and the social sciences.
