JOSRE's Beginnings
The Journal of Sustainable Real Estate was started in 2008 and put out its first volume in 2009. It was supported for several years by CoStar and Andy Florance and has received support from the Land Economics Foundation of Canada. The University of San Diego and the Burnham-Moores Center for Real Estate have been huge supporters of the Journal and the website. Norm Miller as Senior Editor and Myla Wilson as managing Editor have worked on a volunteer basis since the inception of the journal. Associate Editors have also provided numerous review assistance and advice. Among these Roby Simons from Cleveland State University has played a large role.

What makes JOSRE different?
Like other journals JOSRE uses a double blind review process and has high academic standards. Unlike other journals and websites, we post cases and other industry resources useful for those who teach or want to learn more about sustainability. Please peruse the website and see what we offer or suggest new resources and links that you find valuable. We also encourage the use of color in graphs and live resource links since most of the publications have been on-line, formatted for printing as in a print journal. We have printed Volume 1 and 7 but do not plan on sending out printed copies in the future. After all this approach is far more sustainable.

Submitting to JOSRE
Submissions are preferred in MS Word or PDF format. Authors should submit their manuscript to Myla Wilson via e-mail at mwilson@sandiego.edu and greenjournal@sandiego.edu with copies to Norm Miller below. We are seeking the assistance of Deans to help us find faculty engaged in sustainable business programs, corporate social responsibility programs, environmental economics, design faculty, geographers, and scientists that want to disseminate their research in this peer reviewed journal. If anyone has a list of Deans with emails we would appreciate assistance in spreading the word.

We also run a Scoopit.com web page focused on current sustainable real estate stories. See

postings then please contact Norm Miller after signing up on scoopit.com.

Thank you!
