The Journal of Interdisciplinary Research for Sustainable Development (JIRSD) is a Peer-reviewed, Interdisciplinary, Open Access Journal published biannually (semi-annually) by Unific Publishing House and Delhi Greens since 2019.
Aims and Objectives
The Journal of Interdisciplinary Research for Sustainable Development (JIRSD) has been set up as a platform for researchers from all disciplines and practitioners of sustainable development to publish their work and help build capacity so that research can help solve global challenges.
JIRSD aims to serve the research community by promptly publishing advances in interdisciplinary research and disseminating it to the public worldwide. JIRSD specifically invites articles/ research contributions from researchers conducting interdisciplinary research to further our understanding towards achieving any or all of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Sustainable development can be defined as development that meets the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of the future generations to meet their own needs. An overview of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals clarifies that sustainable development also implies inclusive development for all.
Consequently, JIRSD will give preference to articles/ research contributions which embody interdisciplinary research towards the protection and development of any of these entities:
- Environment and Wildlife
- Animal Rights
- The Third Gender
- Tribal Culture and Traditional Knowledge
- Women and Women Rights
- Differently-abled Persons
- Urban Poor
- Political and Climate Refugees
- Prevention and Epidemiology of Incurable Diseases
- Fifth Estate (Social Media)
- Lesser-known Languages and Dialects
- Lesser-known or Marginalized People, Places and Regions
