The journal is concerned with extending and integrating the study of economics with disciplines within the natural and social sciences, as well as the humanities.
IJTR is a journal where alternative frameworks can be disseminated and argued to develop a unifying vision of an economic paradigm that realistically portrays economic systems as a whole.
We feel that there needs to be a revolution in the field of economics, to develop new approaches to real world problems. Because economics is intertwined in almost every field of research. If science wishes to contribute to solving these real world issues, transdisciplinary collaboration and communication becomes necessary. There, IJTR is a platform for the practice of transdisciplinary research.
As such, IJTR is a journal for article submissions on epistemological issues such as: (1.) Sustainability, (2) Social Multricriteria Evaluations, (3) Ecological Economics and the Biophysical Foundations of Economics, (4) Systerms Research, and (5) Complexity and Post Normal Science. If your research does not fall into these broad categories, then IJTR is not the place to submit your article. The journal is for the constructive argument and the development of alternative ways to govern sustainability. Furthermore, we seek research articles from colleagues in fields other than economics on how econmic systems really work.
