Co-Editor-in-Chief Susan Elliott releases first volume of new journal "Wellbeing, Space and Society"

Monday, February 22, 2021

The first volume of a new, open-access journal, Wellbeing, Space & Society, is now available online! Co-Editors-in-Chief Susan Elliott, Water Institute member and professor in Waterloo's Department of Geography and Environmental Management, and Jamie Pearce, professor at the University of Edinburgh, have carefully selected and commissioned six papers for the issue that illustrate their vision for this new journal.

The journal publishes research concerned with the difference that space, place and location make to wellbeing. Topics discussed in the first volume include subjective wellbeing, social support, social capital, place, technology, therapeutic landscape, new capitalism and post humanism.

"This new journal was conceived prior to the 2020 global pandemic of COVID- 19 and born in its midst," said Elliott. "It was conceived out of a recognition that health and social scientists had started to intensively explore the concept of wellbeing, and had begun to write about it, theorize about it, and measure and report on it without having an appropriate venue within which to both share and spark dialogue. We therefore look forward to receiving submissions from those concerned with the role that space and place play in shaping wellbeing across the range of spatial scales from the local to the global, that are thought-provoking, informative, illustrative, dialogue-worthy pieces that seek to understand, question, and identify approaches to enhancing wellbeing as we move beyond this global pandemic."
