Greenhouse Gas Measurement & Management Journal: First Announcement and Call for Papers
Published by Earthscan, in association with the Greenhouse Gas Management Institute, Greenhouse Gas Measurement & Management brings together information on the application of methods and techniques to estimate, measure, account and audit greenhouse gases, with experiences on their management and control. This includes experiences in implementing market-based instruments (such as the clean development mechanism and joint implementation) to achieve emission reduction objectives at all levels. It also presents conceptual, methodological and empirical analyses of policy-relevant metrics related to the management of greenhouse gases, and their impacts for industry, government and international organizations, with an emphasis on applied research. The editorial board is headed by Dr Tinus Pulles, Senior Researcher at TNO Built Environment and Geosciences, who has extensive experience in all European emission inventory activities. He was a coordinating lead author for the Energy volume of the IPCC 2006. Dr Pulles is supported by an international team of experts, including:
- Michael Gillenwater, Greenhouse Gas Management Institute
- Dr Amit Garg, Indian Institute of Management, India
- Dr Axel Michaelowa, Perspectives/University of Zurich, Switzerland
- Jeroen Kruijd, PricewaterhouseCoopers, The Netherlands
- Dr Greg Norris, Sylvatica/Harvard School of Public Health, USA
- Justin Goodwin, Aether, UK
The journal is actively seeking submissions for its first issue, aiming to publish in November 2010. Authors are encouraged to submit original research papers, short communications/case studies, opinion pieces/commentaries, book reviews and meeting reports.
Areas covered include:
- Measurement, reporting and verification (MRV) – challenges in, and experiences with, the design and/or application of MRV approaches in developed and developing countries;
- Quality assurance/Quality control – establishing and enhancing QA/QC procedures, including verification of GHG emissions, removals and storage;
- Best practices – identification of, and experiences with the use of, good practices in measuring GHGs, collecting activity data and identifying appropriate emission factors;
- Market-based mechanisms – experiences with the use of market-based mechanisms (including the Kyoto Mechanisms – Emissions trading, Clean Development Mechanism and Joint Implementation) and with the development of reliable project-specific GHG inventory data;
- Accounting – practices relating to accounting for the effects of mitigation measures and determining compliance with specific requirements at all levels; and
- Corporate disclosure and community right to know – risks and opportunities associated with governance issues relating to the management of GHGs.
