Call for Reviewers for the ABIS Special Issue on “Best Sustainability Teaching Practices”

Thursday, April 1, 2021

ABIS is collaborating with the Emerald Journal of International Education in Business to create a Special Issue gathering the best sustainability teaching practices of our network. The publication stems from the 19th ABIS Annual Colloquium “Coming full circle? Sustainability and future-proof global recovery, where a wealth of innovative sustainability teaching practices were presented.

The aim of this publication is to support our network to gain and access relevant insights and knowledge from innovative methods, creative practices and sustainability programmes in order to accelerate sustainability uptake, learning capacity and improve the development of a more sustainable business education.

To ensure high quality of the publishing process and the essential double-blind peer review, we have opened a Call for Reviewers for the ABIS Special Issue.

Selection Criteria

Reviewers should be active in research or practice in sustainability and/or systemic thinking, interdisciplinarity, teaching and learning. The reviewers should be able to assess the quality, relevance and merit of the papers based on learning objectives, level of innovation, robustness and provided lessons learned. Previous reviewing experience and experience with working with the ScholarOne Manuscripts of Emerald is an asset, however it is not obligatory.

Time commitment

We encourage submissions by individuals who are competent to take on this role and who can find the time to commit to this task. The editorial team will attempt to spread review assignments across available reviewers not to overburden them. Reviewers can expect 1 - 3 reviewing requests. We will ask to complete reviews within 2 weeks after accepting a review. The expected time commitment should start from April to May and then again around August/September.

Reviewers should consider themselves as mentors to the author(s) and their reviews should therefore be specific and constructive and suggestions should be intended to enhance the manuscript.

The Special Issue dedicated guest editors:

  • Mollie Painter, Professor of Ethics and Organization, Nottingham Business School, Nottingham Trent University
  • Satu Teerikangas, Professor of Management and Organization, Turku School of Economics, University of Turku
  • Ivo Matser, CEO, ABIS

To be taken into consideration please fill out the information in the Call for Reviewers and send it back to by April 11th, 2021.
