Authors' Guidelines

Researchers of multiple disciplines of sustainable development are invited to submit manuscripts.

Submitting articles

All journals must be submitted via our online submission system.

Please prepare your manuscripts in the English language. Either British and American English are accepted but be consistent in spelling and usage throughout the article and avoid mixing both. Before submitting the papers, authors are strongly encouraged to conduct language editing by native-level readers.   

Provide the following data on the title page.

  • Title. Concise and informative. Titles are often used in information-retrieval systems. Avoid abbreviations and formulas where possible.
  • Author names and affiliations. Present the authors’ affiliation addresses (where the actual work was done) below the names. Indicate all affiliations with a lower-case superscript letter immediately after the author’s name.
  • Corresponding author. Clearly indicate who is willing to handle correspondence at all stages of refereeing and publication, also post-publication.
  • Abstract. A concise and factual abstract is required (maximum length of 200 words). The abstract should briefly state the purpose of the research, the principal results, and major conclusions. 
  • Keywords. Immediately after the abstract, provide a maximum of 5 keywords

Please be advised that all submissions will be subject to rigorous screening for originality, employing the Turnitin plagiarism detection service, before any further processing steps. Articles not within the threshold will be rejected unprocessed.
