You are invited to take part on the world's largest editorial project on sustainability ever undertaken - the "Encyclopedia of the Sustainable Development Goals: Transforming the World We Want" published by Springer, as part of the award-winning "World Sustainability Series":

http://www.springer.com/series/13384?detailsPage=titles

The Encyclopedia encompasses 17 volumes, but we are particularly seeking authors for:

Goal 17 – Working in Partnership for the SDGs (Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development)

For each, we have terms which need to be authored, but you can suggest up to 3 chapters to author.

The size of each chapter will be circa 4,900 words (excluding the reference list). The chapters are critical summaries/synopses rather than original research reports.

Authorship is non-paid, but entails a wide visibility since the names and affiliation of the authors will  appear on the publication both in print, as well as on the on-line version, which they will be able to access free of any charges. Contributions to the Encyclopedia are peer-reviewed and hence officially count for promotion and tenure purposes. By February 22, please send your contributions to an Assciate Editor of the Encyclopedia - Dr. Elena Shabliy: encyclopediacontributions@gmail.com
