About Us - Journal of CESaRE
The Journal of Caribbean Environmental Sciences and Renewable Energy (CESaRE) was developed in 2016 out of a recognized need to modernize and revolutionize the Caribbean's scientific research publishing.
There are over 170 Caribbean research publications in the past 5 years falling under the broad field of environmental sciences, found scattered over a large variety of International journals, without a central (Caribbean) location to collate this knowledge. With the global shift towards renewable over traditional energy sources, together with a rise in environmental consciousness, this a perfect opportunity for highlighting such research conducted in the Caribbean.
CESaRE will provide a suitable forum to encourage research into renewable energy, as well as the environmental sciences. CESaRE promises to be more than just a collection of articles, but also a forum to disseminate information and bridge the gap between research and implementation, from which Caribbean leaders, relevant industry partners, and authorities can use our Journal for more effective decision making and environmental management.

Caribbean based research publications in the Environmental Sciences and Renewable Energy amounted to ~200 research articles in the last 5 years, and this number is ever increasing as environmental concern and innovation surge amongst Caribbean academics. Yet, these articles make their way to international journals, perceived to be the appropriate home for research falling under this umbrella.
Less than 5 Academic Journals in the Caribbean on the Environmental Sciences, Renewable Energy, Policy and Sustainable Design.
Here is where CESaRE steps in.
Far too often, Caribbean Journals are undersubscribed and overburdened, with < 5 Journals currently functioning within CESaRE’s scope of the Environmental Sciences and Renewable Energy. A quick search will also show that internationally renowned publishing houses such as Elsevier and Wiley often overlook these Journals owing to their niche audience and limited innovation. CESaRE will bring Author Highlights, leading researcher interviews through an Academic Podcast, and even a CESaRE Edu App for users to stay abreast of the latest research findings in the Caribbean, pushing the boundaries beyond the conventional.
CESaRE will be much more than articles curated by world-leading academics, as we believe that the right people are not getting into the same room. Academics in the region advance our scientific understanding of today’s problems, but the people who drive the change on the ground are often left out of the process. CESaRE will bring Caribbean academics, NGOs, Universities and affiliated Corporations to the same table through workshops, webinars and professional conferences around the region.
CESaRE will engage Non-profit Organizations (NGOs), Academics and Corporations equally to ensure we achieve our vision.
CESaRE will also foster environmental change through an online portal for job postings, blogs, and professional networking for youth volunteers. This is just the beginning of our mission and it will evolve to truly make CESaRE a leading body in academia. As seen through the joining of multinational bodies, collective action is needed to bring the Caribbean to the forefront of environmental stewardship and energy innovation. Based in Trinidad and Tobago, CESaRE will be the stimulus in ensuring this change in the Caribbean and relevant Latin American states.
