"The authors analyse solutions offered by science and technology with a clarity that will likely surpass the expectations of non-expert readers. Following a pedagogical approach with vivid illustrations, the book offers an in-depth description of how each green-energy option could be integrated into a global-energy strategy ... They stress that any solution should not compromise quality of life or development opportunities in developing countries. This book could not be more timely. It is an invaluable resource for scientists, policymakers and educators."
"Overall, this collection of case studies provides an outstanding starting point for understanding the ethics of chemistry. It is an extremely important contribution to the study of chemical ethics … Ethics of Chemistry is a key resource for educators interested in integrating ethics instruction into their chemistry curricula … an important foundation for equipping students with the moral judgement and analytical skills necessary to contend with the ethical issues they are likely to face in their professional lives."
"This brief book offers an interesting, fun, and widely accessible first-person tour of CERN, the European Center for Nuclear Research, the largest particle physics laboratory in the world. The facilities at CERN include the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), a 27-kilometer particle accelerator that straddles the border between Switzerland and France. The LHC was famously used to discover the Higgs boson, a long-sought fundamental particle. Physics historian Depambour (University of Paris) is enthusiastic about all aspects of CERN, especially its role as an agent for peace and international cooperation..."
Special Issue on the Green Economic Recovery in the Post-COVID-19 Era
Guest Editors: Farhad Taghizadeh-Hesary, Naoyuki Yoshino, Muhammad Mohsin and Nawazish Mirza
This special Issue collected eight empirical papers with practical policy implications on ways to achieve green economic recovery and mitigate greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the post-COVID-19 era. The collected papers provide new perspectives on ways to mitigate GHG emissions in the economic recovery after the COVID-19 pandemic. Each of these eight papers makes a unique contribution to this debate.
Special Issue: Networks, Heterogeneity and Evolution in Economics
Guest Editors: Leonardo Bargigli and Giorgio Ricchiuti
The papers collected in this special issue offer to the reader a representative sample of the ongoing efforts of Agent-Based ComputationalEconomics (ACE) researchers to push further the frontier of knowledge in the challenging field of economics. In the first part of these notes, we have tried to sketch the main open themes of ACE, whichprovide the necessary context for these efforts. It is hoped that all colleagues, butespecially young scholars interested in ACE, will find the contributions that is published today useful for their research.
Special Issue on Innovation and Marketing: Contemporary Challenges
Guest Editors: Georgios Tsekouropoulos, Christos Sarmaniotis and Evelyn Odonkor
This Special Issue is involved in a wide range of marketing topics. Writers aim to identify issues associated with (i) vulnerability of global supply chains concerning the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic crisis; (ii) value-added networks and frame ideas on the need to transform supply chain management through the consideration of possible uses;(iii) implementation and methodological framework related to the SCOR model which is linked to the principles of fine thinking.
