IWWG – International Waste Working Group is pleased to announce the launch of Detritus, a new Multidisciplinary Journal for Waste Resources and Residues.
The journal is aimed at extending the “waste” concept by opening up the field to other waste-related disciplines (e.g. earth science, applied microbiology, environmental science, architecture, art, law, etc.) welcoming strategic, review and opinion papers. The journal has been named Detritus to convey a truly international flavor (the term derives from Latin) and to appropriately represent the notion of the multidisciplinary journal we intend to develop. – more than widely used technical words such as Waste, Recycling, Closing the loop, Sustainable Management, renewable resources, Circular economy, etc. .
Detritus will be published quarterly starting from March 2018. The submission and review process will be implemented through the professional platform ScholarOne, powered by Clarivate Analytics. An international high profile Editorial Board will manage the journal, and papers will undergo the customary high standard peer review procedure, aimed at achieving a top quality production. This will allow the journal to be indexed in the leading citation Databases in the future, thus providing the opportunity, with the help of authors and readers, to build up its own impact factor over the next few years.
