This special series focuses on responses to climate change taking place in, and / or led by, non-traditional ‘research’ communities. It will provide a platform to record and disseminate the insights from many community-level and community-led research projects that are currently poorly visible (or completely invisible) to many researchers and practitioners.
UCL Open: Environment is committed to sharing peer-reviewed knowledge about environmental issues, including climate change. In this special series we are encouraging contributions from authors engaged in producing knowledge about climate change in and with local communities. All articles accepted for publication will meet our usual standards of quality and originality, whilst fulfilling the need for wider recognition of transdisciplinary, community-based knowledge.
Submission is open to anyone. The series will include research articles, case studies and commentaries about community-level responses to climate change. We hope that all submissions will be based on work done in collaboration with or led by non-traditional research communities. The journal offers waivers and discounts for Article-Processing Charges (APCs) including for articles whose corresponding authors are based in low-income countries (visit the series webpage for more details).
