Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue will consist of selected papers from the Sustainable Asia Conference 2014, an international conference held in Nanchang, China, during April 23-25, 2014. SAC 2014 is one of the leading international conferences for presenting novel and fundamental advances in Sustainable Development issues for Asia. The purpose of the conference is for scientists, scholars, engineers, and students from universities and research institutes around the world to present ongoing research activities, so as to promote global research networking in the sustainable development area. This conference provides opportunities for the delegates to exchange new ideas and application experiences face to face, to establish research or business relations, and to find global partners for future collaboration. The scope of this Special Issue encompasses topics related to sustainable development and management at both the macro- and micro-levels in Asian countries

Notes for Prospective Authors

Selected papers from the Sustainable Asia Conference (SAC 2014) will primarily be considered for publication. Besides these, there may be a separate “open call for submission of papers”. The proposed papers should neither have been previously published nor be under active consideration for publication elsewhere. All submissions should meet Sustainability author guidelines (http://www.journals.elsevier.com/technological-forecasting-and-social-change/call-for-papers/sustainable-e-governance-in-northeast-asia-challenges-for-su/)

Important Dates

Papers that are currently under preparation are welcome, but we also expect papers to be written as a result of this call. The deadline for submission is July 31, 2014. Early submission is strongly recommended. The refereeing process starts once the paper is received (starting from April 30, 2014).

1) Submission date for authors: April 30, 2014
2) Deadline for manuscript submission for review: July 31, 2014
3) Expected date for fully refereed and revised papers to be delivered for production: September 30, 2014

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page.
