GAIA: Ecological Perspectives for Science and Society is “an inter- and transdisciplinary journal for scientists and other interested parties concerned with the causes and analyses of environmental and sustainability problems and their solutions.”

Particularly relevant to i2S are articles on transdisciplinary project design, transdisciplinary research theory and transdisciplinary research methods.

Between 2017 and 2019, GAIA published nine open-access “Frameworks for Transdisciplinary Research” for which Gabriele Bammer was the commissioning editor:
