The Inter-University Sustainable Development Research Programme (IUSDRP) is leading the production of the “Encyclopedia of Sustainability in Higher Education”. This is a unique, high calibre, peer-reviewed publication, will provide a substantial addition to the body of information and knowledge on matters related to sustainable development in higher education.
The Encyclopedia of Sustainability in Higher Education will be published by Springer, as part of the “World Sustainability Series“. It consists of many terms related to sustainability, to be compiled by senior academics on the one hand, but also by by PhD/Masters students performing work on sustainable development issues on the other, providing them with the opportunity to engage in scientific writing, and to become part of the next generation of professionals familar with concepts related to sustainability.
We therefore warmly encourage teaching staff to bring this to their relevant BSc/PhD/MSc students performing research on sustainability issues, since they might be able to provide quality inputs which may pass peer-review.
Since accepted inputs to the Encyclopledia are official proofs of high level academic performance which may be used for promotion/tenure purposes, certificates will be sent to authors whose works have been accepted, which may add them to their CVs.
We warmly encourage teachers and students from developing countries to make submissions, since they are under-represented on the international sustainability literature.
A small grant of Euro 500 will be made available to teachers of each university, which may gather inputs from suitably qualified teachers/students. This also makes sure the university is well represented. All inputs will be peer reviewed.
