WIREs Climate Change, a Wiley journal published in association with the Society and the Royal Meteorological Society, is celebrating 10 years of publishing.
Edited by Professor Mike Hulme of the University of Cambridge, WIREs offers a unique platform for exploring current and emerging knowledge from diverse research perspectives across a range of disciplines that develop our understanding of climate change. Recent papers have explored young people’s perceptions of this global phenomenon, discussed the history of the global carbon budget, and assessed what climate change can learn from the COVID-19 pandemic and whether it is too late to stop dangerous climate change.
Both the Society and the Royal Meteorological Society are very pleased to have re-signed our contract with Wiley to continue to publish WIREs Climate Change.
Professor Liz Bentley, Chief Executive of the Royal Meteorological Society, said: “We are delighted to be continuing our partnership with Wiley and the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) to deliver WIREs Climate Change. Over the past 10 years we have seen this journal grow into an award winning and 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. It is great that it is now also an additional member benefit for both our Societies and I know our members really value the variety of content.”
The Society’s Director, Professor Joe Smith, said: “The importance of interdisciplinary research to advance our understanding of climate change and wider environmental transformations has never been more important. We are excited to be building on our successful joint work with Wiley and the Royal Meteorological Society on the WIREs title. It is a highly valued and distinctive platform that supports better informed action on these defining issues of our time.”
Fellows and members of both the Society and Royal Meteorological Society can access WIREs articles for free as part of their membership.
