Global Sustainability is a new Open Access journal dedicated to supporting the rapidly expanding area of global sustainability research. Without profound societal transformations, humanity risks destabilising the Earth system. In the last decade, the research field of global sustainability science has expanded rapidly to explore human social and economic pressure on the whole Earth system. This journal explores global sustainability, planetary and societal resilience, and solutions for societal transformations.

Global Sustainability publishes interdisciplinary original research, reviews and commentaries addressing how human activities interact with Earth system dynamics. It invites work on sustainable pathways, evolution and resilience in the Anthropocene.
