Dear Colleagues, The field of Energy/Environmental/Government/Tourism Economics has been constantly changing and that green energy/tourism research has a rapidly evolving structure. Although numerous energy/tourism economics studies have been published, the comprehensive intellectual improvement process of the energy/tourism economics field in energy/tourism study is not well depicted due to lack of green energy/tourism studies in this field. Therefore, a need exists for green studies that reveal the intellectual structure of the field. Such studies are valuable in terms of indicating the significance of the field, the development trend, showing the extent to which issues need to be studied in the future, and guiding the improvement of the field. Also, green energy/tourism studies assist to reflect the research trends in that field and indicate the research trend in a particular field. The results of this research may advance knowledge and understanding in the general area of the green energy/government/environmental /tourism research field. Also, it provides a useful information for energy innovators/researchers to improve and improve their research plan/experience. Especially, knowledge of green energy/tourism research can help increase positive green energy/tourism research projects, such as sharing economy, open innovation, sustainability, innovation and technology. Contributions can be represented by original research papers or review papers. Due to editorial procedure, between the first submission in the electronic system and the publication, it takes at least one year for such a Special Issue to be published. However, the online version of the accepted papers will be available one month after acceptance. The issue, collecting all articles, will then be printed at least one year after the submission deadline. The paper publication will only be done when the special issue will be fully completed and not before. Papers written by scientists, engineers/economist and other professionals working in the energy/environmental/tourism area will be received from countries on all continents. The following topics are included with respect to the application of energy/environmental/tourism approach in ENTECON issue, but are not limited to: • Energy, Environmental & Innovation policy with focus on green energy & tourism under COP26 and SDGs, • Green (Renewable & Natural gas & Bio etc…) energy use under Climate change, • Energy, Environmental & Tourism development effects on CO2 emissions, • Innovative & sustainable energy/environment/production under economic development, • Energy & Tourism Demand - Supply site with government spending and innovation, • Uncertanity & Freedom on energy, environment and tourism under climate change and pollution, Realistic Timeline: Open call for paper: June 01, 2022 Deadline for full paper submissions: October 01, 2022. All invited papers will be subject to the same rigorous peer-review process as regular submissions to the journal, and upon publication each author team will be provided with a free pdf file of the article. We ask that you submit your manuscript directly to the ESPR editorial office by online submission at https://www.editorialmanager.com/espr/default.aspx.
