Transdisciplinary research approaches for sustainable development, Special issue of the Wiley Sustainable Development journal.
In this special issue, we will explore TD as a research approach for supporting research in the sustainability sciences: an analysis of existing applications in related fields of research will lead to in-depth understanding of philosophical and methodological boundaries when designing and applying TD research approaches. This special issue will emphasise the inherent dilemmas and consequences when doing transdisciplinary research, and relate these to the field of sustainability sciences.
- Submission deadline for the full papers: 01/10/2020
- Review rounds between October 2020 and April 2021
- Projected publication of the special issue in July 2021.
