Call for Papers with focus on the Sharing Economy

1 December 2017: Deadline for initial submission of full papers!

The Journal of Cleaner Production calls for papers for a special volume with focus on the sharing economy.

The proposed special issue aims to explore the diversity of sustainability claims of the sharing economy, i.e. regarding its economic, environmental and social impacts, and the institutionalisation pathways of new forms of sharing in different socio-cultural contexts.

The special issue will comprise papers from the 4th International Workshop on the Sharing Economy that took place at the International Institute for Industrial Environmental Economics at Lund University, Sweden on 15-16 of June, 2017. Authors who have not participated in the workshop are also invited to submit papers on the sharing economy.

Invited are comprehensive and integrative reviews, conceptual and analytical contributions helping to describe and deepen understanding of the sharing economy phenomenon, sharing organisations and entrepreneurs, sustainability impacts and institutionalisation processes, as well as case studies.
