Geography, Environment, Sustainability

Geography, Environment, Sustainability journal is published jointly by Russian Geographic Society, Faculty of Geography of Lomonosov Moscow State University, and institute of Geography RAS. Aim of the journal is to illuminate related interdisciplinary scientific fields, many new approaches and methods along with a wide range of their practical applications. This goal covers a broad spectrum of scientific research areas and also considers contemporary and widely used research methods, such as geoinformatics, cartography, remote sensing (including from space), geophysics, geochemistry, etc.

In the areas of “Geography, Environment, Sustainability” a new challenge to structure accumulated knowledge, to describe inner relations, and to form spheres of influence between different disciplines has emerged. The scope of the GES is to publish original and innovative papers that will substantially improve, in a theoretical, conceptual or empirical way the quality of research, learning, teaching and applying geography, as well as in promoting the significance of geography as a discipline

The main sections of the journal are the theory of geography and ecology, the theory of sustainable development, use of natural resources, natural resources assessment, global and regional changes of environment and climate, social-economical geography, ecological regional planning, sustainable regional development, applied aspects of geography and ecology, geoinformatics and ecological cartography, ecological problems of oil and gas sector, nature conservations, health and environment, and education for sustainable development.

Published papers are in open access and can be found at: http://ges.rgo.ru/jour/issue/archive

International Soil and Water Conservation Research

The International Soil and Water Conservation Research (ISWCR), the official journal of World Association of Soil and Water Conservation (WASWAC) http://www.waswac.org, is a multidisciplinary journal of soil and water conservation research, practice, policy, and perspectives. It aims to disseminate new knowledge and promote the practice of soil and water conservation.

The scope of International Soil and Water Conservation Research includes research, strategies, and technologies for prediction, prevention, and protection of soil and water resources. It deals with identification, characterization, and modeling; dynamic monitoring and evaluation; assessment and management of conservation practice and creation and implementation of quality standards.

Examples of appropriate topical areas include (but are not limited to):

• Soil erosion and its control
• Watershed management
• Water resources assessment and management
• Nonpoint-source pollution
• Conservation models, tools, and technologies
• Conservation agricultural
• Soil health resources, indicators, assessment, and management
• Land degradation
• Sedimentation
• Sustainable development
• Literature review on topics related soil and water conservation research

Proceedings of the International Association of Hydrological Sciences

The aim of Proceedings of the International Association of Hydrological Sciences (PIAHS) is to provide up-to-date overviews of work in specific fields of hydrological sciences by presenting peer-reviewed papers from IAHS conferences and workshops. The scope covers all hydrological and related sciences and is determined by the activities and partnerships of the IAHS. Every volume has a theme reflecting the topic considered at the corresponding event and is guest-edited.

The Proceedings of the International Association of Hydrological Sciences is a continuation of the IAHS Proceedings and Reports series (the IAHS Red Books) that commenced in 1924, whose archives are accessible at http://www.iahs.info.
