We are inviting authors to submit contributions to the second issue of The Ecological Citizen. This is a new online journal that will strive to address the central issue of our time: how to halt and reverse our current ecocidal course and create an ecological civilization.
We are seeking: Long Articles (in general, 2500–3000 words plus up to 30 references, but please see the note below about the possibility for lengthier pieces*); Opinions (400–500 words plus up to five references); and Book and Culture Reviews (500–1000 words). And we are interested in receiving contributions from a wide spectrum of authors, including philosophers, scientists, naturalists, indigenous thinkers, theologians, activists and poets. We are particularly keen to be sent pieces with practical messages offering a 'way forward'. The deadline for submissions is 31 December 2016.
While we are looking for intellectual rigour, contributions should – owing to the breadth of topics covered within the scope of the Journal – be aimed at a non-specialist audience. You can read more about the Journal here and you can see our submission guidelines here.
To contact the Journal about submitting a piece, please use our contact form.
*In general, Long Articles should be 2500–3000 words, plus up to 30 references, but it may not be appropriate to restrict pieces on all topics to this limit. If you would like to propose a piece that is longer than 3000 words, please do so via our contact form.
