Scientific Papers of the Polish Society of Ecological Engineering, South-Eastern Branch based in Rzeszów and the Polish Soil Science Society, Branch in Rzeszów (Zesz. Nauk. PTIE i PTG Oddz. w Rzeszowie) were issued as an annual between 1997-2014. They were formed thanks to the research activities of the members of both Societies, as well as through collaboration with research centers in the country and abroad. For a long time they promoted sustainable development by presenting the environmental studies and interpreting their significance for public education in conjunction with the other planes of this model, formulated as a binding development policy in the Polish Constitution of 1997. Following the spirit of the age and seeing the need for further promotion of sustainable development we have changed the name into POLISH JOURNAL for Sustainable Development, (Polish Journ. Sust. Development, ISSN 2450-3746, DOI: 10.15584 / pjsd.) while remaining the broadly understood natural orientation of our publications.

We publish papers in Polish and English covering the following domains:
Research on the state of environmental resources, their protection and rehabilitation,

  1. Shaping the environment in accordance with sustainable development,
  2. Research on innovative techniques and technologies used in protecting the environment and promoting sustainable development,
  3. Education for sustainable development with a particular concern for biodiversity.
    The Journal serves the education for sustainable development very well, since it is distributed free of charge among educational institutions (also annual conference and workshops for teachers of Podkarpacie and gifted students interested in natural sciences) as well as relevant government institutions.
    Each article is reviewed on a confidential basis and is available on-line. Each article holds a Polish and English title, abstract and keywords in both languages. The Programing Board is internationalized and the Journal has a statistical and language editors
