Entertainment Engineering
Edited by José Augusto Kamel
Publishing July 2016 onward
The little-studied machinations behind the scenes of contemporary Brazilian theater; how we learn to cheer up at work; our complicated methods of choosing which phone to buy next....More and more, and particularly in Brazil, popular passions and pastimes are big business. The articles in this Special Issue dive deeply into the broad, growing industry of Entertainment, exploring what goes into key products' production, how major companies in the sector behave, and the important role that creativity can play. 

Education for Sustainability
Edited by Luis Felipe Nascimento
Published March and April of 2016 
Education for Sustainability (EfS), a topic frequently discussed in Management Meetings and debates on education for management, suggests a need to change the educational paradigm. Studies are being carried out to identify the level of knowledge among students and teachers of management courses, the gaps in the curricula, and the need of organizations for managers capable of making them more sustainable and competitive. The papers in this Special Issue analyze EfS in educational institutions and business organizations around the world.

Aims and scope

Drawing on multiple disciplines such as agricultural sciences, biotechnology, energy policy, environmental studies, and materials science, the journal publishes peer-reviewed empirical research and novel commentary. Special Issues promote ongoing discourse on Entertainment Engineering, Education for Sustainability, and Innovation, Technology and Sustainability: Brazilian and Nordic Experiences.
