1. Editorial policy
The Sustainable Development, Culture, Traditions Journal (ISSN: 2241–4002) is published by the Syros Institute. It is a scientific and archival multidisciplinary journal for reporting original contributions on Sustainability and Culture. More specifically, the journal aims to promote research in the fields of Sustainable Regional Development and Cultural Heritage. Development and heritage are to be understood broadly, both as representations of culture and tradition through centric or dominant historic constructs, and as instances of locally constituted popular traditions. The journal publishes two issues per year, in English. Submissions are evaluated by two reviewers, selected on the basis of their respective subject areas. Each submitted paper is reviewed by experts in the area of the paper’s content. To be published, a paper must conform to the highest standards of professional development of the disciplines identified with its content. All papers must include new insights in order to be acceptable for publication.
