Cities and the Environment (New Scholarly Open Access Electronic Journal)

Cities and the Environment (CATE), published by the Urban Ecology Institute and the Boston College Libraries, in cooperation with the USDA Forest Service, has released its first volume/issue. CATE publishes peer-reviewed scholarship on urban ecology research and urban ecology education.
Cities and the Environment (CATE), a web-based journal, aims to provide an international forum for urban researchers and practitioners to explore ecological theory, share relevant data and exchange best practices. Industry sectors that this journal shall target include the biophysical, social and educational aspects of urban management, landscape transformation and educational interventions. The ability of web-based publishing to reach the widest readership possible and the publisher’s goal to keep this journal free of charge will produce a scholarly environment where the audience can exchange ideas and findings that contribute to continued positive urban transformations.
