While technically journals, Annual Reviews publish critical reviews of the literature over 60 disciplines in the life, physical and social sciences each year. Written by leading scholars, articles in each year's volume summarize and analyze the state of research on a topic. They are excellent starting points for research.
Annual Review titles relevant to MScSM research include:
RECOMMENDED STARTING POINT . A scholarly, annotated listing of key sources (articles, books, and other resources) for 100+ topics within environmental science. Topics range from seminal authors and researchers to concepts and frameworks as well as more topical subjects. Updated on an ongoing basis.
RECOMMENDED STARTING POINT. Another annotated, scholarly bibliography, this time for management. Topics covered include those related to business ethics, corporate social responsibility and sustainability.
Is ethanol production from corn a recipe for famine? Is clean coal a viable option or is it simply polluting the energy dilemma? Are genetically modified foods helpful or harmful? This volume includes 150 articles examining these and other green issues and debates.
The Encyclopedia of Sustainability Science and Technology (ESST) addresses the grand challenge for science and engineering today. It provides unprecedented, peer-reviewed coverage in more than 550 separate entries comprising 38 topical sections. ESST establishes a foundation for the many sustainability and policy evaluations being performed in institutions worldwide. An indispensable resource for scientists and engineers in developing new technologies and for applying existing technologies to sustainability, the Encyclopedia of Sustainability Science and Technology is presented at the university and professional level needed for scientists, engineers, and their students to support real progress in sustainability science and technology. Although the emphasis is on science and technology rather than policy, the Encyclopedia of Sustainability Science and Technology is also a comprehensive and authoritative resource for policy makers who want to understand the scope of research and development and how these bottom-up innovations map on to the sustainability challenge.
