Reference: Encyclopedia of Sustainability in Higher Education - Invitation to contributors from Baltic countries
The Inter-University Sustainable Development Research Programme (IUSDRP) https://www.haw-hamburg.de/en/ftz-nk/programmes/iusdrp.html
is leading the production of the "Encyclopedia of Sustainability in Higher Education". This is a unique, high calibre, peer-reviewed
publication, will provide a substantial addition to the body of information and knowledge on matters related to sustainable
development in higher education.
The Encyclopedia of Sustainability in Higher Education will be published by Springer, as part of the
"World Sustainability Series" http://www.springer.com/series/13384. It consists of many terms related to sustainability, to be
compiled by senior academics on the one hand, but also by by PhD/Masters students performing work on
sustainable development issues on the other, providing them with the opportunity to engage in scientific writing,
and to become part of the next generation of professionals familar with concepts related to
sustainability. We therefore warmly encourage teaching staff to bring this to their relevant PhD/MSc
students performing research on sustainability issues, since they might be able to provide quality
inputs which may pass peer-review.
Since accepted inputs to the Encyclopledia are official proofs of high level academic performance
which may be used for promotion/tenure purposes, certificates will be sent to authors whose works
have been accepted, which may add them to their CVs.
We warmly encourage colleagues especially from Baltic countries to make submissions,
since these are under-represented on international sustainability literature.

We look forward to interesting inputs.
