About the Journal
Environmental Humanities is a peer-reviewed, international, open-access journal. The journal publishes outstanding interdisciplinary scholarship that draws humanities disciplines into conversation with each other, and with the natural and social sciences, around significant environmental issues. Environmental Humanities has a specific focus on publishing the best interdisciplinary scholarship; as such, the journal has a particular mandate to:
1. Publish interdisciplinary papers that do not fit comfortably within the established environmental subdisciplines, and
2. Publish high-quality submissions from within any of these fields that are accessible and seeking to reach a broader readership.
