Electronic Green Journal” (EGJ), an academic, peer-reviewed journal on international environmental topics, is now available to all users without restriction through the University of California’s eScholarship Repository at http://repositories.cdlib.org/uclalib/egj.

Published since 1994, the journal contains practical and scholarly articles, bibliographies, reviews, editorial comments and announcements on topics such as environmental protection, conservation, natural resource management and ecologically balanced regional development. Its readership includes environmentalists, ecologists, regional planners, researchers, educators, students and members of the general public.

EGJ was one of the first peer-reviewed international journals published through an open-access model, which provided unrestricted access to its contents. The move to the eScholarship Repository platform enables the journal to archive its contents, lower its costs and attract more visibility.

EGJ is published twice a year under the sponsorship of the UCLA Library. Its general editor is Maria Anna Jankowska with the UCLA Charles E. Young Research Library, and its book review editor is Amy Chatfield with the UCLA Louise M. Darling Biomedical Library.
