About this Series:
Having its roots in physics to describe the mutual influence of our universe’s particles even across vast distances, entanglement is an appropriate metaphor for the co-constitution of supposedly separate identities through relationality and dynamic interactions (or "intra-actions" rather) between and within systems in spacetime. Self and other, human and nonhuman, nature and culture are interdependent agents rather than autonomous entities. By the same token, knowledge and meaning is co-produced by different academic and fields and expertise outside academia as well as by animals, machines and other nonhuman participants in the world-creating dance. The book series Entanglements seeks to promote this understanding by soliciting work that entangles disciplines, concepts, methods and practices in the interest of a radical inter- and transdisciplinarity and, not least of all, for a sustainable planet at large.
Frontiers in Sustainability
About this Series:
Frontiers in Sustainability (FinS) is an edited book series by MDPI. It serves as a transdisciplinary and multistakeholder platform for regional and global sustainability issues. Here, we understand transdisciplinarity as a collaboration between researchers from different disciplines to conceptualize, study, and derive solutions to sustainability-relevant problems that may be relevant to stakeholder practices and outcomes beyond academia. FinS promotes debates within and between academic disciplines, especially the natural sciences, engineering and technology, and the social sciences, and it seeks to publish academically relevant exchanges between academia, intergovernmental and non-governmental organizations, politics, and business.
FinS also publishes manuscripts that do not fit the conventional journal format. Apart from theoretical or empirical papers on sustainability, contributions may include tentative policy or position papers, important research updates, opinion pieces, focused literature reviews, descriptions of relevant research or government programs, and other original and creative contributions relating to sustainability.
All manuscripts are peer-reviewed. Those accepted for publication in FinS appear as a hardcopy, as well as online as open access articles. FinSis linked to the World Sustainability Forum. However, submissions from authors who did not present their work at one of the Forum events are also considered for publication.
