The Inter-University Sustainable Development Research Programme (IUSDRP) https://www.haw-hamburg.de/en/ftz-nk/programmes/iusdrp.html is leading the production of the "Encyclopedia of Sustainability in Higher Education". This is a unique, high caliber, peer-reviewed publication, will provide a substantial addition to the body of information and knowledge on matters related to sustainable development in higher education.
The Encyclopedia of Sustainability in Higher Education will be published by Springer, as part of the "World Sustainability Series" http://www.springer.com/series/13384. It consists of 500 terms, to be compiled by senior academics on the one hand, but also by by PhD/Masters students performing work on sustainable development issues on the other, providing them with the opportunity to engage in scientific writing, and to become part of the next generation of professionals familiar with concepts related tosustainability. We therefore warmly encourage teaching staff to bring this to their relevant PhD/MSc students performing research on sustainability issues, since they might be able to provide quality inputs which may pass peer-review.
Since accepted inputs to the Encyclopedia are official proofs of high level academic performance which may be used for promotion/tenure purposes, certificates will be sent to authors whose works have been accepted, which may add them to their CVs. Further details on the project, and on how to contribute to it, it can be seen here: https://www.haw-hamburg.de/en/ftz-nk/publications/encyclopedias.html
