Reviews and Testimonials

"Green computing and environmental sustainability are evolving doubtlessly to key factors in global businesses of the 21st century. Their implementation changes the negative impact on the planet's environment and simultaneously affects business costs. The International Journal of Green Computing (IJGC) offers here an excellent scientific stage for sharing and discussing these promising topics. It is a great source not only for students and researchers but also for entrepreneurs and CEO's in the industries."

I was drafting the plans for a collaborative Industry-Academia research on Transportation Planning and Scheduling when my thoughts veered to the International Journal of Green Computing (IJGC). Our major goal is to address the challenges of greener transportation and logistics - a major global challenge. I think the IJGC is creating the right support for such Green initiatives. Several of the papers in recent volumes have made remarkable contributions to the general theme of innovations in design and resource utilization. In particular they address both IT for Green and Green IT, subjects that we work on.

In the present day, environmental issues have gained prominence because of the recent recognition of the roles they play in the growth process. International Journal of Green Computing (IJGC) provides an important avenue for researchers and practitioners to present and evaluate theoretically and/or empirically, issues relating to the environment in a concise manner relevant to the global economies. I have no reservation in recommending the journal to all economic scholars.
