Journal: Electronic Green Journal

[] (EGJ) is a professional journal on international environmental information is a professional peer-reviewed publication devoted to disseminating information concerning environmental protection, conservation, management of natural resources, and ecologically-balanced regional development. Because environmental issues frequently cross disciplines as well as national borders, EGJ welcomes scholarly manuscripts from all fields and countries.

The Electronic Green Journal (EGJ) is one of the first peer-reviewed environmental on-line journals promoting an open access publishing model. Since its inception in July of 1994, the EGJ has allowed all Internet users unrestricted access to original articles, book reviews, and information on international environmental topics.

The main goal of the EGJ is to assist in international scholarly communication about environmental issues. In order to meet this goal, the journal strives to serve as an open and active forum of communication about environmental issues, as well as an educational environmental resource, including both practical and scholarly articles, bibliographies, reviews, editorial comments, and announcements. At the heart of EGJ is free access to unbiased and quality information about environmental issues as an alternative to costly, commercially produced scientific journals.

EGJ is written for information consultants, environmentalists, ecologists, regional planners, publishers, booksellers, researches, educators, librarians, students, and Internet users interested in worldwide environmental topics. It is academically sponsored and published semiannually by the University of California Los Angeles Library.
