Journal Impact Factor: 1.931
Nature and Culture (NC) is a forum for the international community of scholars and practitioners to present, discuss, and evaluate critical issues and themes related to the historical and contemporary relationships that societies, civilizations, empires, regions, and nation-states have with nature. The journal contains a serious interpolation of theory, methodology, criticism, and concrete observation forming the basis of this discussion.
The journal's mission is to move beyond specialized disciplinary enclaves and mindsets toward broader syntheses that encompass time, space, and structures in understanding the nature–culture relationship. The journal furthermore provides an outlet for the identification of knowledge gaps in our understanding of this relationship.
Nature and Culture receives financial support for its editorial operations from the Department of Urban and Environmental Sociology, Helmholtz Centre for Environmental Research (UFZ), Leipzig.
The editors and editorial board will consider new topics, and authors should not be restricted by those listed below. Current themes are as follows:
- Cultural Reactions and Conceptions of Nature
- Degradation and Restoration of Environment
- Ecological Time and Futures
- Political and Socioeconomic Arrangements of Landscapes
For a more detailed explanation of these topics, please see Nature and Culture's themes.
