Special Issue "Social Acceptability of Alternative Energy Technology"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (23 April 2021).
Interests: environmental policy; natural resources; sustainability; clean energy policy; health policy; food policy
The Special Issue “Social Acceptability of Alternative Energy Technology” will focus attention on the link between science, technology, politics, and society. As Manzella, et al. (2019: v) note, “The public has become a major actor in the techno-scientific debate.” We invite papers that reflect upon this new reality that shapes energy policy today and will likely continue to do well into the future. We invite papers that employ quantitative, qualitative, or mixed method analysis in both theory testing and development. Comparative methods are highly valued as well.
