Anthropocene Coasts is Now Accepting Submissions
February 28, 2017
Canadian Science Publishing and East China Normal University, along with Founding Co-Editor Dr. Shu Gao and Co-Editor Professor Ian Townend, are pleased to welcome submissions to Anthropocene Coasts.
Anthropocene Coasts is a new international open access journal publishing multidisciplinary research that aims to understand and predict the effects of human activity, including climate change, on coastal regions.
The Anthropocene is the period during which human activities have had a marked environmental impact on the Earth, and Coasts embraces all aspects of the land–sea interface. Anthropocene Coasts therefore seeks to identify and document the influence of human activities on contemporary coastal processes and the implications for other aspects of these systems including social, economic, and legal considerations.
Research that explores potential solutions to these complex issues is encouraged and can include topics such as:
- changes in coastal hazard patterns and the implications for safety;
- the role of coastal ecosystem services and how these may change;
- implications of population growth and urban expansion on the coast;
- adaptation in response to change and methods to enhance coastal sustainability;
- interactions with society (including aspects such as economics, policy/legislation and regulation, social mobility, technology, engineering, and risk management);
- observations, modelling, and theoretical advances to better detect and understand change.
From now until December 31, 2017, we’re waiving APCs (article processing charges). Join us as one of the very first authors to be published in this new and exciting dissemination channel.
