Sustainability: The Journal of Record will publish a special issue focusing on the study and practice of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the learning foundations necessary to achieve the SDGs and create sustainable well-being societies. The editors are looking for articles that focus on higher education planning and policy; leadership and team building; organizational change; and the core competencies—skills, knowledge, values, and habits of mind—that cut across four main domains in higher education—content, pedagogy, modeling, assessment—to implement and achieve the SDGs.

This special issue is interested in empirical and theoretical papers, evocative essays, and a series of Case Reports.

Submission due date: November 30, 2018

Guidelines for Case Reports:

Word count: 1200-1600 words

Include sections:

  • The institution’s commitment to SDGs (the level of commitment that was made/is planned to be made—institution-wide; department-wide; led by an individual faculty member, student group, other)
  • Project description (background; define the project with detailed description; timeline or projected timeline)
  • Outcomes (How the institution is measuring/is planning to measure the commitment; lessons learned)
  • Future planning (Goals)

Contributions will receive prompt and thorough peer review. Please refer to our Instructions for Authors before submitting your manuscript via our online submission portal for consideration. We look forward to receiving your manuscripts and to your active participation in the Journal!

The Journal welcomes submissions from diverse research areas including, but not limited to, sustainability science, sustainable development, psychology, landscape architecture, education, social and environmental justice, environmental science, and urban planning.
