WASD produces various publications, to spread information all over the world, and to promote its aims and activities through various other partners. WASD publications are developed to provide an overview of Sustainable Development (SD) and why it is important and to provoke forward thinking on the development of a more coherent approach to solving global problems related to sustainability. In doing so, a holistic approach is used to critically examine the inter-relationship between the natural, the governmental, the economic and the social dimensions of our world and how science and technology can contribute to solutions. And although science, technology and SD are the main focus of our publications, there is no limit as to the articles/chapters that will be considered.
Although the general theme and target will be innovation and knowledge management, there is no limitation to the articles that will be considered by IJIKMMENA. Articles can address topics theoretically or empirically through either a descriptive or critical approach. IJKMMENA particularly encourages articles that significantly bring new knowledge to the area both for academics and practitioners.
