Editor in Chief Endless Journal

ENDLESS: Journal of Futures Studies is a globally-oriented, trans-disciplinary refereed journal.
Its mission is to develop high-quality, future-oriented research and thinking, based on the evolving knowledge base of Futures Studies / Foresight.

ENDLESS Journal’s approach is:
– Trans-disciplinary
– Epistemologically diverse, seeking articles from empirical, interpretative, critical, and action learning research traditions, and; – Multi-methods based, including, for example, methods such as emerging issues analysis, scenario and alternative futures development and analysis, age-cohort analysis, causal layered analysis, visioning and backcasting;

As well as refereed articles, the Journal publishes essays, book reviews, symposia, and art on the following topics:
– Epistemologically focused futures studies on the construction of possible, probable, and preferable futures;
– Methodological innovation in futures studies, including not only integrated, layered, and critical approaches, but also empirical, interpretive, or action-learning based approaches;
– Applied Futures (for example, case studies in using and practicing futures thinking for organizational change, development, and transformation);
– Alternative futures on a variety of subjects (see topic categories below).

ENDLESS Journal is published by the Institute of Futures Studies, Global Writing Academica Research and Publishing.

The editors invite contributors in the areas of foresight, forecasting, long-range planning, visioning, and other related areas, from any of the main research frameworks of future studies – empirical, interpretative, critical, and action learning. The journal invites contributions that offer distinctive viewpoints on a broad range of futures and field-oriented issues.

Articles, essays, and reports are expected to show an in-depth understanding of the field’s dimensions, content, research perspectives, and methods. To stimulate the systematic use and growth of future literature, one of the criteria for publishing in the journal is indicating how the article relates to others in the literature of the future. That is, your paper should refer to material published in this journal and in the other journals in the futures field (including, ENDLESS: Journal of Futures Studies, Futures, Foresight, Technological Forecasting, and Social Change, The European Journal of Futures Research, World Future Review, On the Horizon) as well as futures material contained in books, monographs, other field related journals, including visual resources and web resources. Editors strongly advise authors to cite at least two or more works in the future field.
