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 (www.elsevier.com/locate/esd) 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 (www.sciencedirect.com) and Scopus (
