Acta Innovations is a journal publishing peer-reviewed original research papers, short communications, review and opinion works in areas of Energy, Food Technology, Environmental Engineering and Economics with a clear indication of impact of presented research and innovation on the addressed area.
Since the foundation of the Acta Innovation, the publisher (RIC Pro-Akademia) has aimed to publish manuscripts with integrity and independence to influence the world beyond academia. Achieving impact from our manuscripts will remain a fundamental objective of our journal. Our primary research themes encompass Energy, Environmental Engineering, Economy and Food Technology. These provide the foundation by which we deliver benefit to society. The reach of our impact is global and our interpretation of impact is broad; we have succeeded when the knowledge published contributes to benefits and influences society, our environment and the economy. Hence, the submitted manuscript should address some of the impacts listed below.
Social Impact: The manuscript should address, if relevant how the research/innovation addresses significant social challenges including issues of limited resources and sustainability, health, poverty, inequality and conflict in societies. The research into justice and equality, human rights and modern day slavery can also be addressed. The manuscript can also address aspects related how through international collaborations on climate change, the main worldwide challenges and a sustainable future are addressed.
Economic Impact: The manuscript should seek to demonstrate an impact on the economy through e.g. the development of new products and services that improve productivity, efficiency, resilience and sustainability. It can be demonstrated by the development of future technologies including green chemistry, industrial biotechnology, functional materials and that have a strong pipeline of research and innovation with commercial value.
Environmental Impact: The manuscript has to demonstrated how the environmental impact is addressed. The manuscript should clearly address all aspects of environment and environmental policy. It can be done by numerous manners including LCA as well as other reliable and well-stated metrics.
Policy Impact: The manuscript should address aspects related to delivering public services and providing the evidence base for decision-making and resource management in energy, environment, economics and food fields. Manuscripts should address how the described process contributes to social policy, environmental management and energy and how widely influential are they.
Regional Impact: The manuscript can provide an emphasis on the regional impact. It can address aspects related to the importance of innovation and research capability in the region in the sense of development of new actions affecting e.g. economic activities, well-being as well as environmental challenges.
The impacts listed above are just examples and not exhaustive lists of impacts that can be addressed in the manuscripts submitted to Acta Innovations journal.
