Beginning in 2009, it became a quarterly journal, published in conjunction with Oxford University Press. ISLE seeks to explore the relation between human beings and the natural world, and publishes articles from literary scholars, environmental historians, specialists in the visual and performing arts, environmental philosophers, geographers, economists, ecologists, and scholars in other fields relevant to "literature and environment." The journal also publishes poetry, fiction, and literary nonfiction pertinent to its thematic focus.
