SCOPE and Elsevier partner to publish Environmental Development
Date:3/9/2011

Amsterdam, 9 March 2011 Elsevier, the world leading publisher of scientific information products and services, and SCOPE, the Scientific Committee on Problems of the Environment, today formalized their collaboration to publish the new journal Environmental Development, to be launched in the final quarter of 2011. This publication, supported by UNESCO and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), responds to the dynamic and impressive expansion of both environmental sciences and policies of the last four decades.

Under the leadership of Professor Theo Beckers (Tilburg Sustainability Center, the Netherlands), Editor-in-Chief of Environmental Development, the journal aims to serve as a transnational panel to identify and debate problems, and to suggest how to prevent or respond to them. Rapid and integrated assessments, including ecological, economic and social causes and effects, are important to go beyond the definition of singular problems and beyond scientific borders. An important subject will be the development of quantitative methods and models for scenario-building and forecasting.

Prof. Lu Yonglong, President of SCOPE, mentioned, "A new phase in environmental development is emerging, characterized by an interest in application and learning. This phase requires behavioral changes, new policy strategies and management tools in governments, businesses and society. Currently there is a need to develop a global knowledge base, rooted in fundamental research, with a high potential for application and the development of regional and context-based instruments for ecological preservation and environmental management and policy. The launch of this new journal underlines SCOPE's leadership position in the field of environmental science, management and policy, and strengthens its role in providing solutions to regional environmental issues of global significance."
