Aims and scope

The shifting to green and low-carbon economy is at the heart of carbon neutrality actions worldwide. Green and Low-Carbon Economy publishes significant original research that seeks to understand and address the economic challenges in transitioning to a carbon-neutral world. The journal aims to advance the understanding of how to achieve a green and low-carbon economy, its human and policy dimensions, and potential solutions. The journal’s mission is to provide a single and leading platform to facilitate cross-disciplinary dialogue around the green and low-carbon economy research from the economy, social, environmental, management, and applied sciences that seek to answer questions like:

  • The measurement, drivers, and mechanisms of green and low-carbon economy
  • Barriers and strategies to green and low-carbon economy transition
  • The social, political, and technological pathways for green and low-carbon economy


We particularly encourage studies with interdisciplinary interest. Researches focusing on all spatial, temporal, and socio-political scales will be considered. The journal is open to all relevant topics including but not limited to:
