Worldwide Waste Journal of Interdisciplinary Studies and the Journal of Waste Management and Environmental Issues are two new, open-access journals dedicated to waste and issues surrounding waste. Both are currenlty taking papers. Details are below.
Worldwide Waste is an interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal presenting innovative research on waste from around the world. It critically interrogates the cultural, social, economic and political systems within which waste is created, managed and circulated.
The journal privileges no particular theories, debates or trends. Its goal is to actively stimulate publications of innovative scholarship on relatively unexplored topics and/or from geographical areas that have thus far been underrepresented in waste studies. One of the aims of the journal is to counteract the Eurocentric character of much current work about waste.
As interdisciplinarity is the central principle of the journal, submissions are encouraged from across the humanities and social sciences, including anthropology, archaeology, ecology, geography, history, literature, philosophy, politics, sociology, science and technology studies, and the visual and performing arts.
Worldwide Waste has now launched and is open to submissions for its inaugural volume, planned for early 2017. We welcome all submissions that fit within the scope of the journal. Full details on how to prepare and submit a manuscript can be found on our website.
