Sustainability: Science, Practice, & Policy (SSPP) is a peer-reviewed, open-access journal that provides a platform for the dissemination of new practices and for dialogue emerging out of the fields of sustainability science and policy practice. The journal fills a gap in the literature by establishing a forum for cross-disciplinary discussion of empirical science as well as practice and policy developments. SSPP facilitates communication among scientists, practitioners, and policy makers who are investigating and shaping nature-society interactions and working toward sustainable solutions.

Open Access Policy / Permissions: The mission of SSPP is to rapidly disseminate information on sustainability science and policy practice in support of greater global exchange of knowledge. The journal is available free to all to read, download, copy, and reproduce for any scientific purposes without asking the author or publisher for permission to do so.
