AGU Science Policy Alert 13-29
Today, AGU and John Wiley & Sons, Inc. announced their partnership to publish the new open access peer-reviewed journal, Earth’s Future, which will begin accepting submissions on 17 June.
Earth’s Future will emphasize the Earth as an interactive, evolving system under the influence of the human enterprise and will reflect the risks and opportunities associated with environmental changes and challenges. It will feature primary research across disciplines and connect it to policy through the inclusion of editorials, essays, reviews, and other commentary pieces. Contributors will tackle solutions to such grand challenges as population increase, industrial and agricultural development, urbanization, climate change, energy, food and water resource sustainability and security.
Additional information on Earth’s Future, including how to submit a manuscript, is available atearthsfuture.agu.org.
