The Editors in Chief of Society and Natural Resources would like to invite scholars to submit proposals for a Special Issue. Topics of particular interest are:

  • Energy systems
  • Food systems
  • Soil
  • Air
  • Urban systems

Please submit the following in one PDF:

  • Proposed title Guest Editorial Team (2-3 people)
  • Special Issue abstract
  • Timeline (note that the timeline should end with ‘paper submission to SNR’ as the timeline from there will follow the normal journal process)

Deadline for proposals is January 1st, 2021.  

Successful proposals will then be handled by the Guest Editorial Team. We will not require individual abstracts as evidence for a special issue proposal, but reserve the right to cancel any special issues that do not have sufficient interest.

Please email Jessica Hill ([email protected]) if you have any questions.

Best regards,


~ Kristin Floress & Emily S. Huff, SNR Co-Editors-in-Chief
