Sustainable Production and Consumption (SPC), a new academic journal from the Institution of Chemical Engineers (IChemE), in partnership with Elsevier, will launch in 2015 and focus on the importance of sustainability in sectors as diverse as retail, tourism, transport, health, food, energy, construction and the chemical and process industries. Editor-in-chief, Adisa Azapagic, professor of sustainable chemical engineering at the University of Manchester, UK, will manage the new journal. Experts from Denmark, Germany, Italy, Sweden, Switzerland, UK and the USA will join Azapagic on the editorial board.
SPC joins four other journals published by IChemE, including Chemical Engineering Research and Design (CHERD), Process Safety and Environmental Protection (PSEP), Food and Bioproducts Processing (FBP) and Education for Chemical Engineers (ECE).
SPC is designed to provide a platform for publishing high-quality interdisciplinary papers on research and practice in the field. Authors from all fields of engineering, natural and social sciences as well as humanities are encouraged to share their ideas, policy perspectives and thoughts on the emerging field of sustainable production and consumption.
IChemE works in partnership with Elsevier, provider of science and health information, to publish its journals. All five journals are available in print format and online from ScienceDirect, Elsevier's online full-text scientific database. From 2015, for the first time, IChemE members will have free online access to all five journals.
