A message from Dr. Xiang...

I am delighted to report, as the founding editor-in-chief, the launch of a new geography journal Socio-Ecological Practice Research (SEPR) by Springer Nature. 

I cordially invite you to click to download and read the inaugural editorial. As you can see, to respond to the question in the title “Socio-Ecological Practice Research (SEPR): What does the journal have to offer?”, the editorial lists four items—

  • A mission (to pursue)
  • A fleet of scholarly articles (the arsenal)
  • A set of important commonalities (quality assurance)
  • The prospects

One major thrust is knowledge implementation and impact research in socio-ecological practice. The response is overwhelming from colleagues from around the world. I have already lined up all the four issues for 2019, and am grateful for the support!
