Regional Sustainability

Aims & Scope

Regional Sustainability is an international peer-reviewed open access journal publishing high-quality articles in multi-disciplinary and interdisciplinary subjects relating to sustainability. The journal advances our understanding of the sustainability dimensions of environmental protection, economic development and social development from local to global scales. It publishes theoretical and experimental research papers on resources exploitation and utilization, urbanization and regional sustainable development, urbanization and informatization, man-land relationship and regional differential, population migration and society transformation, and spatial layout and optimization of human activity.

Regional Sustainability provides a platform for researchers to explore the relationships among environment, economy and society. The journal publishes research that works towards the goal of achieving human-ecosystem equilibrium in which the exploitation of resources and the orientation of development are in harmony and do not destroy or degrade the natural environment.

The journal releases 4 issues per year, covering full-length articles/research papers, review articles, short communications, editorials and short reviews. Occasional special issues provide in-depth discussion of contemporary issues. We welcome all original, innovative, and integrative submissions that make contributions to the theories and methods related to Regional Sustainability.

The journal is sponsored by Xinjiang Institute of Ecology and Geography, Chinese Academy of Sciences.
