    The Journal for the History of Environment and Society aims to be a leading online and open-access periodical that covers all aspects of environmental history conceived in its broadest sense. The journal encourages high-quality scholarship which focuses on relations between environmental changes and social-historical context. Interregional and international comparative articles receive special attention. Because of the interdisciplinary nature of the discipline, papers should be accessible for scholars from all disciplines in the field, which will also ensure their accessibility to a wider audience. To ensure scholarly quality, JHES follows a strict double-blind peer-review procedure. Geographically, the Journal focuses primarily – but not exclusively - on North-West Europe (including areas that had historical relations with that broad region). Articles with a more general geographic scope can also be published in the Journal. Articles can be published in English, French or German. Articles should include an abstract of 80-130 words; articles in French or German should include an English abstract in addition to an abstract in the language of the article. In the latter case, the subtitles from the illustrations need to be bilingual as well.
