Scope Official Journal of the European Federation of Chemical Engineering: Part E. Sustainable production and consumption can be defined as production and use of products and services in a manner that is socially beneficial, economically viable and environmentally benign over their whole life cycle. The journal aims to provide a leading platform for publishing high-quality interdisciplinary papers on research and practice in this emerging field. It looks uniquely at the interactions between technology, consumption and policy to help identify more-sustainable solutions for both production and consumption systems. Papers from engineers, natural and social scientists as well as philosophers are invited and those at the interface between these disciplines are particularly encouraged. Types of article published by the journal include original research, perspectives, short communications, policy and review papers. All papers should include some elements of life cycle thinking and should clearly demonstrate that they are addressing topics related to sustainable production and consumption. Note that papers on end-of-pipe treatment technologies are outside the scope. The areas and topics covered by the journal include but are not limited to: Concepts and approaches • Circular economy • Clean technology/cleaner production • Climate change mitigation • Consumer engagement and communication • Corporate social responsibility • Eco-efficiency • Ecosystem services • Ethical investment and consumption • Green/sustainable chemistry • Industrial ecology • Intra/Intergenerational equity • Life cycle management • Life cycle thinking • Life cycle sustainability assessment • Producer responsibility • Rebound effect • Supply chain management • Sustainable design • Sustainable lifestyles • Sustainable policies • Sustainable procurement • Sustainable products and services

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
