Responsibilitiy of Peer Review

The double-blind peer–review process is under the responsibility of AMER (Association of Malaysian Environment-Behaviour Researchers), ABRA (Association of Behavioural Researchers on Asians) and cE-Bs (Centre for Environment-Behaviour Studies), Faculty of Architecture, Planning & Surveying, Universiti Teknologi MARA, Malaysia.

Journal History

Proceedings of previous international conferences organised by the Association of Malaysian Environment-Behaviour Researchers (AMER) since 2010 were published and accessible online in Elsevier's Procedia Social and Behavioural Sciences (ISSN: 1887-0428) , www.ScienceDirect.com. Those proceedings have all been indexed in Thomson Reuter's Web of Science (WoS). The inevitable but timely birth of the Environment-Behaviour Proceedings Journal in 2016 was mainly to sustain the publication of the proceedings of forthcoming annual, serial international conferences to be organised jointly by AMER, ABRA and cE-Bs. This journal is currently indexed in Clarivate Analytics (WoS) and ScienceOPEN.
