The Sustainability knowledge community creates a place for the publication of papers presenting innovative theories and practices of sustainability. The journals in this collection are cross-disciplinary in their scope, a meeting point for natural and social scientists, researchers and practitioners, professionals and community representatives.
The perspectives presented range from big picture analyses which address global and universal concerns, to detailed case studies which speak of localised applications of the principles and practices of sustainability. The papers traverse a broad terrain, sometimes technically and other times socially oriented, sometimes theoretical and other times practical in their perspective, and sometimes reflecting dispassionate analysis whilst at other times suggesting interested strategies for action.
The Sustainability Collection consists of:
The annual review publishes once per volume; the thematiaclly focused journals publish quarterly.
Authors can request which of the thematic journals they would prefer for the publication of their article. Alternatively, when the author does not opt to make a selection, the Common Ground editorial team will curate each paper into the appropriate thematic journal.
The annual review consists only of articles considered to be of wide interest across the field selected by our editorial team in consultation with the Advisory Board. We do not accept direct submissions to the annual review. Candidates for inclusion in the survey journal will include top-ranked articles, works by invited contributors, papers offered by plenary speakers at the conference, and articles selected from thematic journal submissions for their wide applicability and interest across the field.
Subscribers and conference participants are offered access to the whole collection of journals, organized into thematic sections and the survey journal for ease of access and clearly differentiated focus of interest.
