Why Publish in Case Studies in the Environment?
- Extend your geographic and educational impact. Whether you are a researcher or graduate student expected to maximize the educational impact of your research, a professional or an educationally focused adjunct instructor with fewer opportunities to publish research, writing case studies on your research, practical work, or teaching extends the recognized impact of what you do.
- Improve your case with our peer review. We help make your case the best it can be.
- Sustainable reach. As an extension of one of the largest public universities in the world, UC Press provides non-profit library subscription models developed with input from librarians, and free access to Case Studies in the Environment in developing countries.
