International Journal of Energy Security and Environmental Research (ISSN 2047-3354) is focusing on the study of energy security and environmental policy and their social, cultural, political, economic and business impacts. The Journal is equally interested in empirical and theoretical contributions. The Journal was founded in early October 2011, and will appear annually. The first volume, issue one, was published in January 2013, by Markoulakis Publications. IJfESER is peer-reviewed and intends to maintain the highest academic standards.
Following the successful publication earlier this year of its inaugural special issue on EU-Russia energy relations, the International Journal of Energy Security and Environmental Research (IJfESER) is publishing a special issue on energy security in East Asia, with a focus on China.
The available scholarly work presented in this issue explore the modalities of China’s energy security strategy and its impact on the regional order in East Asia. The published articles provide, in addition, an analysis of the environmental implications of this strategy and they cover a range of energy sources, from petroleum and natural gas to renewable energy. The analytical approach to both energy security, geopolitics and the environment is interdisciplinary, and the articles combine various methodologies. The articles were peer-reviewed.
