SCELG and environmental journals

Prof Elisa Morgera appointed to Associate Editor role in two leading environmental journals

Sept 2020 – Prof Elisa Morgera, member of the Strathclyde Centre for Environmental Law and Governance, has been invited to serve as Associate Editor of Environmental Policy and Law by UCL Open: Environment – a new inter- and multi-disciplinary open science journal, that aims to publish radical and critical thinking on all aspects of environment-related research – from life and earth sciences, as well as medical, physical, engineering, social sciences, etc. It operates dually as an open access e-journal (where editorially accepted articles are officially published) and as a dedicated preprint server (where open peer review firstly takes place). The Advisory board of UCL Open: Environment includes Prof David Freestone, who is one of the Advisors of the One Ocean Hub.

In addition, Prof Morgera has been invited to serve as Associate Editor for Environmental Policy and Law, a long-standing international, interdisciplinary journal that facilitates an understanding of environmental policy and law issues drawing upon and contributing to the environmental social sciences, health, natural, and computer sciences. The aim of the journal is to promote communication among academia, government, business and industry, and non-governmental organizations. It is widely read by international negotiators on environment, ocean and sustainability issues.
