What shapes sustainability?

SENS PhD students review factors that shape sustainability in new paper.

Prabin Rokaya, Razi Sheikholeslami, Sopan Kurkute, Mahtab Nazarbakhsh, Fan Zhang, and faculty member Maureen Reed published a paper in the journal Sustainability Science, titled Multiple factors that shaped sustainability science journal: a 10-year review.
