The Board of the Journal of Sustainable Development contacted the Romanian Club based on the belief that members of our group may be interested in the politics and often urban planning/aid policies of Romania or other countries in Eastern Europe.
Consilience is a global, online publication dedicated to promoting interdisciplinary dialogue on sustainable development. By providing a public platform for discussion, we hope to encourage a global community to think more broadly, thoroughly and analytically about sustainable development.
This publication aims to bring students, researchers, professors, and practitioners from a variety of disciplines and geographical regions in direct conversation with each other through an online, academically rigorous medium.
We invite you to submit original and rigorous articles dealing with issues of sustainable development for the Fall 2007 issue. Articles can take the following forms:
* Scholarly Articles - Original, research-based articles concerning sustainable development. Scholarly articles consist of rigorous novel research or analysis of existing and historical work. Emphasis will be given to interdisciplinary articles. There is no set length for scholarly articles but most fall between 3,000 and 10,000 words.
* Field Notes -- Field notes provides a space for students, researchers, professors, and practitioners that have done field work abroad to share their ideas and experiences related to their work. Generally, field notes are less formal and should be shorter than scholarly articles.
* Opinion Editorials (Op-Ed) - An opinion piece concerning sustainable development and its attendant challenges, strengths, and structures.
All papers selected for submission will undergo peer review by both the Editorial Board of Consilience and the Advisory Board consisting of graduate students and professors. All articles should be the work of the authors, though writing done as part of previous class work is welcome.
Article Pitch deadline: October 21st, 2007 (only for writers who would like to present their ideas to the editorial board prior to writing the piece)
Submission deadline: November 11th, 2007
Publication Date: December 29th, 2007
