Aims and Scope

Professor Carol Adams tells us why she was inspired to launch the Sustainability Accounting, Management and Policy Journal and offers advice to authors on submitting their articles.

The Sustainability Accounting, Management and Policy Journal brings together research from a range of disciplinary approaches to improving social and environmental sustainability and the social and environmental consequences of climate change and other issues. Working towards finding practical and policy solutions to improve the performance of organizations and societies, the journal takes research from academics, practitioners and consultants in the field..
