About Case Studies in the Environment

Quality cases, comprehensive coverage of environmental issues

Case Studies in the Environment is a journal of peer-reviewed case study articles and case study pedagogy articles. The journal informs faculty, students, researchers, educators, professionals, and policymakers on case studies and best practices in the environmental sciences and studies.

Research grants may require that you “broaden the impact” of your work through innovation in teaching and training (e.g., develop curricular materials and pedagogical methods); contribute to the science of learning; and broaden engagement with your research to people outside your immediate field. Publishing in Case Studies in the Environment is a meaningful way of broadening the impact of your work.
