Peer-reviewed Elsevier journal welcomes papers on conservation and sustainability

Resources, Conservation and Recycling, a peer-reviewed Elsevier journal, welcomes contributions from research, which consider all aspects of resource management, particularly with regard to conservation and sustainability objectives. The journal emphasizes the transformation processes involved in a transition toward more sustainable production and consumption systems. Emphasis is upon technological, economic, institutional and policy aspects of specific resource management practices, such as conservation, recycling and resource substitution, and of “systems-wide” strategies, such as resource productivity improvement, the restructuring of production and consumption profiles and the transformation of industry. 

Contributions may have relevance at regional, national or international scales and may focus at any level of inquiry from individual resources or technologies to whole sectors or systems of interest. Contributors may emphasise any of the aforementioned aspects as well as scientific and methodological issues. However, submissions which consider process developments at laboratory or pilot scale whose application potential in a practical, economic sense is not evident and that have not yet seen widespread testing or application are discouraged.
