For Immediate Release
WASHINGTON, DC (March 28, 2022) - The Journal of Science Policy & Governance (JSPG) is pleased to release Volume 20, Issue 01, the 2021 standard winter issue of the journal.
"I'm thrilled to be publishing another exemplary standard issue. Because standard issues are not organized around one theme, they excel both at exhibiting the broad expertise of JSPG authors and demonstrating the overlapping areas of interest among early career members of the science policy community,” said Ben Wolfson, JSPG Assistant Editor-in-Chief for Standard Editions. “It's clear that while identifying real global issues, our authors are also passionate about how science policy can contribute to finding solutions to these issues.”
The 2021 standard winter issue of JSPG includes 9 articles that address topics on environmental justice for communities impacted by coal ash; carbon-neutral practices for conference planning; sustainable nutrient management regulations; the bio-economy; energy access and equity; evidence in state policymaking, insurance regulations impacted by climate change; and current and future sustainable supply chain practices.
“With JSPG’s 10 year anniversary soon approaching, I continue to be inspired by the innovative science policy ideas shared by our early career authors in the journal’s volumes over the years,” said Adriana Bankston, JSPG CEO & Managing Publisher. “This standard issue is no exception, and I look forward to continuing to elevate these ideas across our platforms and to see them come to fruition towards building a better society by the next generation."
