Guide to Authors


The subject matter of papers published in World Resource Review (WRR) covers all aspects of science and policy interactions with the management of natural resources. Extreme events (EE) and their economic impacts worldwide were first reported among the pages of the WRR. Recent subjects include global warming mitigation, Kyoto Protocol compliance, EE and climate change, global warming impacts on industry, agriculture, energy, and infrastructures, monitoring of changes in resources and resource use using remote sensing and supercomputers, human health in a changing climate, Clean Development Mechanism (CDM), corporate greenhouse gas management, policy for sustainable development and coastal zone development management, actions of national and international bodies, energy and material efficiency, global and national carbon budget, greenhouse gas budget, and methane cycles. Projects and activities are reviewed so as to illuminate the scientific and social reasons for their successes and failures. The Journal is committed to environmentally and economically sound management of the world's industrial, agricultural, forestry, energy, mineral and material resources.

In addition to Review Papers the Journal publishes Short Communications, Technical Notes, Letters to the Editor, Discussion of published papers, the Extreme Events department, the Keep You Informed department, the WRR Topics in a Box department, Notices and Reports of Meetings, Book Reviews and Critical Literature Reviews.

Authors are aimed to write concisely for the science and policy audience. A significant element of the manuscript's review will be the clarity of writing.

The manuscript must be double-spaced with one-inch margins. Original drawings and two copies approximately twice the final size should be submitted. Three copies of the manuscript in English and on 3.5 inch disk or CD (in Word) should be submitted to Prof. Sinyan Shen, Editor-in-Chief, World Resource Review, PO Box 5275, Woodridge IL 60517-0275 USA.
