Now they are working on future issues and here is a message from one of the Editorial Advisory Board encouraging submissons. We will look forward to receiving your submission.

The success of #SRRNet is shown by our conferences, "#SRJ", and the books we publish. More importantly we discuss issues of concern and this has led to understanding the need for a new journal: "#TECHS". The first issue is imminent so here is a call for submissions for future issues from a member of the journal team.

It has been talked about a lot in the media recently that Technology is crucial for us achieving sustainability. But of course what is important is how we use that technology and this is what our journal focuses upon. Good ideas and applications come from all over the world and we can all learn from these. So here is a short message In Arabic inviting contributions.

"Dear Researchers and scholars interested in sustainability. Very warm welcome to the newly launched Technological Sustainability Journal published by Emerald in the UK. This is also the official journal of the Social Responsibility Research Network (SRRNet) in the UK.

This journal aims at attracting novel and high-quality contributions covering technology applications for the achievement of sustainability goals in all industrial sectors including manufacturing and services sectors.

The first issue of our new journal, "Technological Sustainability" will soon be published. It looks like the journal is already being very successful and this is thanks to the Network members, editorial board members and contributors. Listen to Prof Rodica Milena Zaharia,Bucharest University of Economic Studies, introducing the journal.

"Technological Sustainability" is a forum for scientific and technical debates on sustainability, which is addressed to all those interested in the interdisciplinary approach of this so generous field.

The journal is published under the auspices of the prestigious Emerald Publishing House, under the patronage of an academic and professional network, Social Responsibility Research Network (SRRNet), dedicated to all those interested in the complex analysis of social responsibility.

I firmly believe that the launch of this journal, "Technological Sustainability", coordinated by enthusiastic, dedicated and excellent professionals, will help to increase the quality of theoretical and practical debates on sustainability.


, Dr. Shahla Seifi, Editor-in-Chief of the Journal, for the initiative and commitment!

An invitation from our Belarusian colleague to submit your papers to TECHS.

Greetings from Belarus, ladies and gentlemen. Have a wonderful New Year!

From my point of view, the scientific journal "Technological Sustainability" appeared very timely.

The international scientific community has a responsibility to determine what can be confronted all today's challenges and risks.

Because in our complex interconnected world, we can only achieve success through joint efforts.

Let's start the new year by a new message from the editorial board of "Technological Sustainability", our new journal. Here is one member inviting you.

Here is the journal website:

Watch these two videos in two sequential posts by Prof Dr Mariana Lima Bandeira. She invites you to submit your papers to our new journal Technological Sustainability. The first video is in Spanish and the Next in Portuguese.

Here is the English Translation of her words: Hi, academics of all Latin America, I am Mariana Lima Bandeira, Professor of Universidad Andina Simón Bolívar, Sede Ecuador and part of Editorial Board of TECHS. TECHS is a new promising initiative, where we can discuss and contribute to this connection between technology and sustainability. We accept research from a functionalist, scientific perspective, as well as critical studies in all fields of knowledge.

I invite you to send your contributions from different approaches, quantitative, qualitative ones, and we await your article to improve this debate on how we are building this debate in our region of Latin America.

TECHS is also a collaborative space where we can debate and also improve our network.

In this video Dr Miriam Green as the editorial advisory board member of Technological Sustainability invites you to submit your papers to this journal.

Now it is time to watch this short video in the Croatian language about TECHS:

Publisher Emerald launched the journal Technological Sustainability which can be taken as a kind of superstructure on topics covered by Social Responsibility Journal, and with the purpose of sharing and covering topics concerned with technological and scientific aspects of sustainability which are pillars of sustainability in any form. Since these aspects are quite specific, it is thought that this approach in a specific journal which covers these aspects is needed as a separate because they mostly cover issues that deal with highly specific technological problems and solutions. In this sense I strongly endorse and promote this journal, and I hope that it will be a success as well as other journals in similar fields published by Emerald.

In English: Hello everybody As a member of the Advisory board of the new journal Technological Sustainability, I would like to invite you to submit your most recent papers with scientific and technological approaches to sustainability. And be sustainable!
