Dear Marmam folks:

It is my great pleasure to share with you the initial announcement and call for papers for the new Journal of Environmental Studies and Sciences (JESS). JESS is the official journal of the Association for Environmental Studies and Sciences (AESS) and will be published by Springer. More information is available below, including a link to the JESS website, where you will find all relevant information. We are extremely excited about the journal and its potential impact on the dissemination of interdisciplinary and other content relative to environmental and natural resource problem solving. We believe that JESS fills a niche in environmental scholarship that has not before existed among academic journals, and hope you will take advantage of its format and content in considering outlets for your work.

JESS seeks a much broader array of scholarly work than Marine Mammal Science, Aquatic Mammals, Conservation Biology, or other journals that frequently include marine mammal-related content. For those of you in the Marmam community whose work crosses disciplinary boundaries, is explicitly interdisciplinary, is applied or problem oriented in a disciplinary manner, or is otherwise broader than the scope of most natural science journals, JESS welcomes your submissions. More guidance is available in the journal's aims and scope and instructions for authors, on the JESS website.

Formal questions about JESS should be addressed to Tony Rosenbaum, the journal's editor-in-chief (e-mail below), though I am happy to respond to informal inquiries as well (I am a member of the editorial board and have been involved in the development of the journal since the idea first took shape).

Thank you!

p.s. apologies for cross-postings!

The Association for Environmental Studies and Sciences (AESS) is pleased to announce the launch of the Journal of Environmental Studies and Sciences (JESS), the official publication of the Association. The Journal will be issued quarterly in electronic and hard copy by Springer Publications beginning in early 2011. We invite you to submit articles for the Journal.
AESS is an independent professional association designed to serve the needs of environmental scholars, scientists, practitioners and students who value interdisciplinary approaches to research, teaching, and problem-solving. We encourage you to join as a member and become an original subscriber to the Journal. To join or to find more information about AESS, please visit http://www.aess.info/.

The AESS and Journal provide venues for the advancement of interdisciplinary approaches to the study of the coupled human-nature systems. A major goal of AESS is to encourage this advancement by promoting related teaching, research and service and by facilitating communication across boundaries that may inhibit environmental discourse across traditional academic disciplines. This commitment also involves supporting the professional development of Association members and advancing the educational status of Environmental Studies and Environmental Sciences programs.

The Journal, available to all AESS members, provides a peer-reviewed, academically rigorous and professionally recognized forum for the publication of explicitly interdisciplinary environmental research, policy analysis and advocacy, educational discourse and other related matters. Contributions are welcome from any discipline or combination of disciplines, any vocation or professional affiliation, any national, ethnic or cultural background. Articles may relate to any historical and global setting. The Journal provides several submission categories:

* Research and Theory.

* Research Briefs.

* Environmental Education

* Policy Analysis

* Commentary and Opinion

* Book Reviews and Review Articles

* Special Issues and Symposia

* Letters

Additional information about submissions and instructions for authors are available at the Journal website:


Dr. Walter (Tony) Rosenbaum of the University of Florida serves as the Editor in Chief. The Editorial Board includes a diverse range of scholars, policy practitioners, and related professions whose expertise extends broadly across the sciences, social sciences, humanities, and other disciplines related to interdisciplinary environmental study, including Ellen Hines, Riley Dunlap, Daniel Kammen, Carolyn Merchant, Thomas Dietz, Michael Kraft, Paul Mohai, Miranda Schreurs, Jeffrey Stein, Stacy Vandeever, Stephen Hubbell and many others. Reviewers exemplify, as well, a regional and global diversity appropriate to the breadth of interdisciplinary environmental studies. Inquiries about the Journal should be addressed to the Editor-in-Chief: tonyros at ufl.edu<mailto:tonyros at ufl.edu>.

Please also remember to mark your calendar for AESS's 2011 Annual Meeting and Conference, "Confronting Complexity" to be hosted by the University of Vermont on June 23-26, 2011.
