Sustainability is instituting annual awards to recognize the most outstanding papers in the areas of environmental, cultural, economic, technical and social sustainability of human beings published in Sustainability.
We are pleased to announce the recipients of the first “Sustainability Best Paper Awards”. Nominations were selected by the Editor-in-Chief and several Editorial Board members of Sustainability from all papers published in 2011. Separate awards are given to articles and reviews, reflecting the differences in these two categories of contributions.
We are pleased to announce that the following five papers were chosen to receive “Sustainability Best Paper Awards” for 2015. I congratulate all of the authors and thank them for their significant and important contributions to the field of sustainability. I also thank the members of the Selection Committee for their efforts.
