The International Journal of Climate Change: Impacts and Responses is brought together by a common concern for the science of, and social responses to, climate change. We seek to build an epistemic community to make linkages across disciplinary, geographic, and cultural boundaries. The journal is defined by our Research Network scope and concerns and motivated to build strategies for action framed by our shared themes and tensions.
We are working to change the way in which knowledge is produced, validated, and shared within member-based Research Networks.
We take research integrity seriously, following standards and best practices established by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). We’re also active members of key industry associations: Association of American Publishers, Association of Learned and Professional Society Publishers, The Society for Scholarly Publishing, and Crossref.
We are committed to expanding the visibility, reach, and impact of research from the Climate Change: Impacts & Responses Research Network. Journals in The International Journal of Climate Change: Impacts and Responses can be found in numerous databases, accessible via the libraries of institutional subscribers, and in the CGScholar Bookstore for current Research Network Members.
Decisions of what is published come from reviewers that are Members of the Research Network ensuring the knowledge is validated in horizontal social knowledge relations. Review scores are based on a clearly articulated rubric, and the result is a peer-review process that is scrupulously fair in its assessments while at the same time offering carefully structured and constructive feedback that enhances the quality of the published article.
A publishing process that is without prejudice to institutional affiliation, stage in career, national origins, or disciplinary perspectives. If the article is excellent, and has been systematically and independently assessed as such, it will be published.
Authors and reviewers, as Research Network members, gain subscriber access to the journal collection, ensuring that the product of their labor is also accessible to them.
We fully support the general principles of open and accessible research and seek to work collaboratively with all stakeholders in this time of disruptive change. We offer a variety of Open Access options to make your research accessible and make accessibility affordable.
