Style Sheet for ESDP

This peer-reviewed book series addresses topics in four major research programmes in the social and political sciences and in international relations: a) environmental studies or ecology; b) international, national and human security studies; c) development studies; and d) peace studies or peace research; and the six dyadic conceptual relationships between them: i) peace and security; ii) peace and environment; iii) development and security; iv) environment and development (sustainable development); v) development and security; and vi) environment and security.

These four key concepts and the six dyadic conceptual relationships address significant issues in international politics and in international relations but also in many other disciplines in the social and natural sciences. SpringerBriefs in Environment, Security, Development and Peace (ESDP) address the linkages across disciplines, and the editor welcomes book proposals and completed manuscripts by natural and social scientists, as well as by multidisciplinary teams of authors. The material may address issues of global change and its impacts on humankind, on environmentally-induced migration, and on crises and conflicts, as well as proposing cooperative strategies to cope with these challenges either locally or in the framework of international organizations and regimes. SpringerBriefs present concise summaries of cutting-edge research and innovative policy perspectives. The series focuses on the interconnection of the new and non-traditional global environmental and development challenges that face humankind and that may pose dangers to peace and security in the Anthropocene era of earth history. SpringerBriefs in ESDP present short monographs and edited volumes of workshops peer-reviewed by scholars from many disciplines and from all parts of the world. These SpringerBriefs will give more voice and visibility to scientists and innovative political thinkers in developing countries. SpringerBriefs in ESDP provide the multi-, inter- and transdisciplinary knowledge relevant for coping with the numerous projected impacts of global environmental change and political, economic and cultural crises and conflicts. They offer

  • timely state-of-the art analyses (e.g. of earth systems science, geoecology) and policy assessments of the global challenges facing humankind in the 21st century
  • bridges between new research results with snapshots of hot and/or emerging topics, literature reviews and in-depth case studies.

SpringerBriefs in
Environment, Security, Development and Peace (ESDP)

Editor: Hans Günter Brauch, Free University Berlin, Germany

SpringerBriefs in Environment, Security, Development and Peace (ESDP) present concise summaries of cutting-edge research as well as innovative policy perspectives. The series focuses on the interconnection of new and nontraditional global environmental and development challenges facing humankind that may pose dangers for peace and security in the Anthropocene era of earth history. SpringerBriefs in ESDP publish monographs as well as edited volumes of topical workshops that are peer-reviewed by scholars from many disciplines and from all parts of the world. SpringerBriefs in ESDP will give more “voice” and “visibility” to scientists and innovative political thinkers in developing countries.

The books will be published 8 to 12 weeks after acceptance. Featuring compact volumes of 50 to 125 pages (approx. 20,000- 70,000 words), the series covers a wide scope of policy-relevant issues from policy-oriented, to professional and academic perspectives. SpringerBriefs in ESDP address the “conceptual quartet” among the four research research programmes in the social sciences focusing on Environment, Security, Development and Peace as well as the “consilience” between the natural and the social sciences that try to initiate debates and to provide multi-, inter- and transdisciplinary knowledge relevant for coping with the multiple projected impacts of global environmental change.

Timely reports of state-of-the art analyses (e.g. from earth systems science or analysis, geoecology) and policy assessments dealing with the global challenges facing humankind in the 21st century.

SpringerBriefs in ESDP bridges between new research results offering snapshots of hot and/or emerging topics, literature reviews and in-depth case studies Briefs will be published as part of Springer’s eBook collection, with millions of users worldwide. In addition, Briefs will be available for individual print and electronic purchase. Briefs are characterized by fast, global electronic dissemination, standard publishing contracts, easy-to-use manuscript preparation and formatting guidelines, and expedited production schedules.

Please allow 1-2 months for the peer review process.
