The Journal of Litter and Environmental Quality 07 November 2016

We are delighted to announce an exciting new project we have been working on over the past few months. Through our Centre for Social Innovation, we have been developing a new open-access, peer-reviewed journal focused on litter and local environmental quality issues with the intention that it will eventually be housed with a publisher.


 The Journal of Litter and Environmental Quality (JLEQ) is a bi-annual, open-access, peer-reviewed journal that will share and discuss research that has been carried out by academics, practitioners and wider stakeholders into litter and environmental quality.


The peer review panel includes University of Plymouth, University of East Anglia, University of Southampton, Newcastle University, Eunomia, CPRE and CleanupUK.The Journal will be available online and through a limited print run. The purpose is to highlight the latest research in this area, to stimulate further research and encourage the use of research to develop practical innovation on the ground.
