After 13 years as Editor in Chief for WIREs Climate Change, Professor Mike Hulme has stepped down from the role and we are delighted to welcome Professors Maria Carmen Lemos (University of Michigan) and Dan Friess (Tulane University) to the journal as joint Editors in Chief.

Mike has done a remarkable job in the role, leading the journal from its foundation to its current position as one of the foremost outlets for climate change research – publishing more than 800 widely read and highly-cited reviews, articles, and commentaries. He has been supported by outstanding Domain Editors, an International Advisory Board, and the team at Wiley.

Maria and Dan are both internationally recognised, leading scholars, and bring with them hugely complementary expertise on climate change, ecosystem services and adaptation. Both have strong commitments to grow the journal and bring in new voices and perspectives. This is an exciting time for WIREs Climate Change and we look forward to working with them closely.

WIREs Climate Change was launched in 2010 as part of a new suite of WIREs (Wiley Interdisciplinary Reviews) to combine some of the most powerful features of encyclopaedic reference works and review journals in an innovative online format. The journal offers a unique platform for exploring current and emerging knowledge from the many disciplines that contribute to our understanding of climate change – environmental history, the humanities, physical and life sciences, social sciences, engineering and economics. 

WIREs Climate Change is published by Wiley in partnership with the Society and the Royal Meteorological Society. Members, Fellows, Associate Fellows and Student Members of the Society receive online access to the journal as part of their membership package.
