CfP Special Issue: Social Resilience to Climate Changes in the Past

February 7, 2019

Liang Emlyn Yang has been in touch with the following update to the original call for papers that was announced in November:

I would like to first inform you the updated program of our conference. Our session 11 is scheduled on Thursday and Friday, March 14-15, 2019. Please check the website.
Though a few of you may not be able to attend the conference, you are encouraged to contribute to our journal special issue on the theme “Social Resilience to Climate Changes in the Past”. Guest editors are Liang Emlyn Yang, Mara Weinelt, Ingmar Unkel, Jonna Seguin.

Both the journals Quaternary Science Reviews and Environmental Research Letters have expressed interests in hosting such a special issue, while their formal decision will be made upon receiving our complete proposal with details of the intended papers.  QSR focuses strongly on natural sciences while ERL welcomes social/historian papers. And, ERL is an Open Access journal that charges publishing fees. 

While papers for the special issue will be primarily from our conference participants, contributions from outside could also be considered.  If you are interested, please send me your commitment (first draft of full paper) one week before the conference, i.e. March 04, 2019, which must include the following information:

  • Title of your paper
  • Detail information of all authors, full names, affiliation, emails
  • Abstract (200-300 words)
  • Main text of at least 1500 words; additional graphes and tables are welcome
  • Preferred/suitable journal for your paper: QSR or ERL, and please state reasons
  • When do you plan to submit complete fullpaper? We request all papers in the issue to be submitted by August 31, 2019 for peer-review. 

I look forward to hearing your responses and to meeting many of you in Kiel!

Best wishes,
