Seeking Common Ground among a multitude of viewpoints.

"Seeking Common Ground among A Multitude of Viewpoints"
The Adirondack Journal of Environmental Studies (AJES) exists to foster a dialogue about the broad range of issues that concern the Adirondacks and Northern Forest. AJES serves to bridge the gaps among academic disciplines and among researchers and practitioners devoted to understanding and promoting the development of sustainable communities, both human and wild. The journal purposefully avoids serving as a vehicle for any single or special point of view. To the contrary, in searching for common ground AJES welcomes variety and a broad spectrum of research and opinion from its contributors.
Article formats include peer-reviewed commentaries and analyses as well as feature articles, interviews, organizational profiles, research news, book reviews and essays. Artwork by regional artists are featured throughout the journal to help make the journal more approachable despite its scholarly treatment of the issues. Thus, AJES readers are academics and practitioners seeking to understand and help facilitate the development of sustainable communities in the Northern Forest.
To improve upon our ability to share research and information, we have changed our approach to AJES. In May of 2011, we launched AJES on-line at www.ajes.org. It provides us with faster review and publishing times throughout the year, significantly expands our readership, and increases opportunities for dialogue between author and reader. We believe it will make AJES more enjoyable and a more effective tool for you. For those of you that prefer a printed copy, we will continue to print an annual version and provide it to libraries and our membership.
