Changes Needed

Environmental Values, 2013, vol. 22, issue 1, 1-5

Abstract: This volume sees the expansion of Environmental Values from four to six issues per year. The journal has undergone a sustained increase in submissions over the last few years. This has allowed editors to raise standards and increase rejection rates, but despite this we have found a backlog of articles building-up. As a result we decided to expand the number of issues. This will reduce waiting time from final acceptance to publication down to around twelve months, and clear the backlog. I will take the occasion of this expansion to start by reporting to readers on the state of the journal...

Overall this issue of Environmental Values shows how the prevention of ongoing environmental degradation confronts some common and seemingly universal problems. There is a strong realist aspect to concerns over human replacement and invasion of Nature and the devastation caused by ever-increasing appropriation of resources and ecosystems functions. The conclusion is that humanity cannot continue to act in this way, but the recommendations for how change can be achieved remain far weaker than the arguments for why things must change.
