World Environment and Island Studies Volume 9 No.1 (March 30, 2019), Volume 9. No.2 (June 30, 2019), Volume 9 No.3 (September 30, 2019) and Volume 9 No.4 (December 30, 2019). For the 9th editions of the Journal in World Environment and Island Studies (WEIS), the World Association for Island Studies (WAIS) in partnership with the World Environment and Island Institute of Jeju Island of South Korea, welcomes submissions on the topic of Environmental Governance, Climate Change, Green Growth, Maritime Culture and Island Studies. (Registration of Korean Citation Number 0884 ).

The 2019 Issues of WEIS will be guest edited by Dr. Grant McCall. (Professor at the Dept. of Anthropology, University of Sydney, AU) He calls attention to sustainability in islands and small states as a topic in need of further attention, conceptual development, and empirical research in an age of world environment. We hope submissions for these special issues will re-imagine islands' unique sustainability needs as well as their capacities to engage in global resilience policy.

Submissions are not restricted to scholars in the field of world environment and island studies; those from other disciplines (e.g. anthropology, history, philosophy, political science, and sociology) are welcome to submit papers relevant to this call. The Deadline for Submissions: February 20, 2019 (Spring edition , 2019: WEIS Volume 9 Number 1), May 20, 2019 (Summer edition, WEIS Volume 9 Number 2), August 20, 2019 (Fall edition WEIS Volume 9 Number 3), and November 20, 2019 (Winter edition 2019: WEIS Volume 9 Number 4).
