The Journal of Education for Sustainable Development (JESD) is a forum for academics and practitioners to share and critique innovations in thinking and practice in the emerging field of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD). A peer-reviewed international journal, JESD aims at global readership and is published twice a year.

The journal seeks articles from the field of environmental education, which pioneered much of the work in ESD, as well as from economics, communications, education, social sciences and the humanities.

The journal is formatted in sections of news, opinion, project descriptions, research, academic opportunities and reviews. Research articles develop, test, or advance ESD theory, research or practice. Project descriptions focus on innovative ESD projects and programmes. A special section addresses international news and events related to the Education for Sustainable Development. The journal publishes reviews of books, videos/films, curricula, and other print and nonprint ESD materials and programmes. Notes and comments from readers continue the discussion.

Contributions to all sections are welcome.

This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

The Journal of Education for Sustainable Development (JESD) is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes empirical as well as research articles, reports and essays relating to all aspects of the emerging field of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) as it is practiced in formal primary and secondary schools, colleges and universities, community organisations, government agencies, businesses and nonprofit organisations around the world.

Launched during the UN Decade for Education for Sustainable Development (2005-2014), the journal seeks to provide an ongoing forum to share, analyze and examine thinking and practice in ESD; and to keep academics and practitioners abreast with the latest developments in the field. The scope of content is kept wide so as to cover all fields of formal and non formal ESD. The journal shares how teachers and educators in diverse fields can facilitate learning that is multidisciplinary, cross-cutting and holistic while enabling learners to address issues of local as well as global importance. Additionally, it aims to strike a balance in the geographical focus by covering innovations and research right across the globe.

The journal invites articles from the field of environmental education–which pioneered much of the work in ESD; as well as from all diverse disciplines as part of the urgent need to integrate ESD thinking and practice into every aspect of human activity. The journal specifically invites research articles on pioneering work in integrating ESD into disciplines in ways that challenge the traditional silo approach to education and practice.
