Re-opened: Special Issue of the journal “Resources” on Recycling in Middle-Income Countries

Newsflash September 2018: There is still room for three additional papers to allow MDPI to publish the special issue in paper form, and the deadline is extended to 15 November 2018. Please make contact with Anne Scheinberg if you are considering submitting a paper. If the paper is ready for submission you can submit it directly to the MDPI site.

We are pleased to invite you to co-operate with me and MDPI (a publisher) on a special issue of the young journal Resources.

“Recycling In Emerging Economies: Practical Considerations for the Circular Economy in Fast-Growing Middle-income Cities and Countries”

Although the journal is not well-known nor highly ranked, I have accepted to be the editor of this special issue because it allows me to re-take an ambition to produce an edited volume about this topic.

The journal is open access, and the papers will be published as they pass the peer review process and are finalised. MDPI usually charges a processing fee, but I am authorized to waive the fee for the first 10 papers. And my goal is to publish a book, with at least 10 papers (and potentially quite a lot more).

Deadline for submission was 1 July 2017. In the meantime, please take a look at the website for the Special Issue:


There are two ways you can participate:

1. contribute a paper to be streamed into the peer review process for a special issue.
2. indicate your willingness to be in a pool of reviewers for the peer review process.

If at all possible, let me know whether you are interested, and if so, which option interests you (or both).

I am really excited about this, and I hope you will consider it to be an interesting opportunity. Please also feel free to send the link to others, or put it out on your list-serves. If you want to nominate others for the pool of reviewers, please send me their names and
contact info.

Warm regards, and thanks!
