"Seeking Common Ground among A Multitude of Viewpoints"
The Adirondack Journal of Environmental Studies (AJES) is the journal of the Adirondack Research Consortium, existing to foster a dialogue about the broad range of issues that concern the Adirondacks and Northern Forest. AJES serves to bridge the gaps among academic disciplines and among researchers and practitioners devoted to understanding and promoting the development of sustainable communities, both human and wild. The journal purposefully avoids serving as a vehicle for any single or special point of view. To the contrary, in searching for common ground AJES welcomes variety and a broad spectrum of research and opinion from its contributors.
Article formats include peer-reviewed articles as well as features, interviews, organizational profiles, research news, book reviews and essays. Comments on articles are encouraged, and only require a free WordPress account (see My AJES to register). AJES.org also hosts a blog for research updates and announcements about the ARC's annual conferences, with comments also welcomed.
To inquire about the suitability of an article topic, or to submit an article for review, please send an e-mail to: Rebecca Steinberg, Executive Editor for AJES, at firstname.lastname@example.org. The e-mail and any article attachments should also be copied to Dan Fitts, Executive Director of the Adirondack Research Consortium, at email@example.com.
As a transdisciplinary journal, technical or discipline-specific terms should be avoided or explained thoroughly in the text. Articles must not have appeared elsewhere in the same form (i.e., discipline-specific articles published elsewhere but rewritten for a general audience are acceptable) and must not be submitted for publication elsewhere while under consideration by AJES. Text should be double-spaced, references should be typed as endnotes and all tables, figures and photos should appear individually on separate pages at the end of the document. The author’s phone number, mailing and e-mail addresses, title, and academic or professional affiliation must accompany the manuscript.
All submissions except book reviews must include an abstract of less than 150 words. Guidelines for the various categories are as follows:
