New publishing partnership for Energy for Sustainable Development

Amsterdam, 2 December 2008 - Elsevier is delighted to announce that starting in January 2009, it will be the official publisher of the quarterly peer-reviewed journal Energy for Sustainable Development ( on behalf of the International Energy Initiative (IEI).

"Sustainable development involves meeting present human needs without compromising needs of future generations. Energy is central to providing many of these needs - food, warmth, light, transportation, industrial goods, etc. Energy for Sustainable Development provides a scientific platform for reporting progress through technical analyses, thoughtful reviews, and innovative policy proposals" said Gautam Dutt, Editor, ESD.

Founded in 1991, the IEI is an independent, international, non-governmental, public-purpose organization, with a unique mission to promote the efficient production and use of energy for sustainable development. IEI launched Energy for Sustainable Development in 1994, and over the years the journal has published many high quality articles, as well as a number of authoritative single topic editions reflecting on major developmental, environmental and energy technologies issues in local and global contexts, written by expert workers and researchers in the field.

Elsevier, in close co-operation with the IEI and the Editors of the journal, will aim to further enhance the profile, impact, and international exposure of Energy for Sustainable Development. It will considerably broaden the journal's access to readers and authors, and to the key target groups of decision makers, managers, consultants, policy makers, analysts, planners and researchers. This will be done by enabling online submission of articles and by including the journal into the online platforms ScienceDirect ( and Scopus (

Henri van Dorssen, Publisher of the Energy journals at Elsevier, commented, "As publisher we greatly welcome the trust that the IEI has put in us to help further develop its journal. IEI can draw on a wide range of outstanding individuals and networks in the energy and development field across the World. We are convinced of the excellent opportunities for synergy and growth in this important development domain."

The back volumes of the journal will be included into ScienceDirect as of early 2009, going back to Volume 1, Issue 1. This will mean that the journal will be accessible online to over 11 million scientists via ScienceDirect and the first issue of 2009 will be freely available at

The journal will also be included in the United Nation's online access programs for the developing world, i.e. AGORA ( and OARE (, providing free or low-cost access to qualifying developing countries.
