Call for papers on the Food-Energy-Water Nexus

The journal Elementa has put out a call for papers on the Food-Energy-Water Nexus.

Food, energy, and water systems (FEWS) are interconnected, interdependent, and complex. They relate in important ways at decision scales that range from individual households and single parcels of land up through international trade agreements and the global climate.

Papers are invited from researchers, educators, practitioners, and policy makers that examine FEWS systems from biological, chemical, physical, social, economic, environmental, technological, and pedagogical perspectives. Manuscripts addressing any FEWS related topic are invited. The Editors-in-Chief of Elementa’s Sustainability Transitions and Sustainable Engineering domains are also particularly interested in submissions addressing Integrated Food-Energy Systems (IFES) and Integrated Civil Infrastructure (or “Infrastructure Ecology”), respectively.
