Advances in Global Change Research
Aims and Scopes
This book series is aimed at addressing a range of environmental issues through state-of-the-art and/or interdisciplinary approaches. The books in the series can either be monographs or edited volumes based, for example, on the outcomes of conferences and workshops, or by invitation of experts. The topics that the series can consider publishing include, but are not limited to:
Physical and biological elements of earth system science, in particular- Climate change- Biodiversity- Sea-level rise- Paleo-climates and paleo-environments
Social aspects of global change- Environmentally-triggered migrations- Environmental change and health- Food security and water availability- Access to essential resources in a changing world
Economic and policy aspects of global change- Economic impacts- Cost-benefit analyses- Environmental governance- Energy transition
Methodologies for addressing environmental issues- Planetary data analysis- Earth observations from space- Proxy data analyses- Numerical modeling- Statistical analyses
Solutions to global environmental problems- Sustainability- Ecosystem services- Climate services- Technological/engineering solutions
Books in the series should be at least 200 pages in length, and include a table of contents.Images supplied in colour will be reproduced in both the print and electronic versions of the book at no cost to the author/editor.Manuscripts should be provided as a Word document and will be professionally typeset at no cost to the authors/editors.All contributions to an edited volume should undergo standard peer review to ensure high scientific quality, while monographs should also be reviewed by at least two experts in the field.Manuscripts that have undergone successful review should then be prepared according to the Publisher’s guidelines manuscripts:
