Calling for new journal articles

Our Centre for Social Innovation publishes the country's only journal on litter and environmental quality. The first issue was hugely well received, even featuring in the national press (download issue one now). We are now looking for submissions for the next issue. 

The Journal of Litter and Environmental Quality is a bi-annual, open-access, peer-reviewed journal that shares and discusses research that has been carried out by academics, practitioners and wider stakeholders into litter and environmental quality. The Journal is available online and through a limited print run. The purpose is to highlight the latest research in this area, to stimulate further research and encourage the use of research to develop practical innovation on the ground. 

We are interested in a broad range of article submissions around the issues of litter and environmental quality. Topics of interest could include articles about specific litter types (e.g. packaging, cigarettes, wrappers), marine litter, monitoring and evaluation, packaging, research methods, social impact, environmental impact, behaviour change, personal impact, enforcement, private land, partnership working, public spaces (e.g. beaches, parks and waterways), innovation and community engagement.

There are two editions per year, one in the summer and a second in the autumn. Submissions are taken on a rolling basis, but the deadline for the 2nd edition has been extended to mid-October 2017. Please try to submit your article as early as possible to enable us to have time to have it reviewed.

All the information you need is available in our call for articles document. If you are unsure if the article you have written or are considering writing is suitable for Journal of Litter and Environmental Quality, please get in touch and we will be able to advise you on suitability.
