New Journal on Anthropocene released by Elsevier.


Anthropocene publishes peer-reviewed works addressing the nature, scale, and extent of the influence that people have on Earth. The scope of the journal includes the effects of human activities on landscapes, oceans, the atmosphere, cryosphere, and ecosystems over a range of time and space scales – from global phenomena over geologic eras to single isolated events – including changes to the exchanges, linkages, and feedbacks among the systems.

Articles could address how the human influence on Earth may produce a distinct geological record, and how these signals may compare with the great perturbations in Earth’s history. Theoretical and empirical contributions linking societal responses to human-induced landscape change are also welcomed.

As humans have emerged as a dominant agent of change on Earth’s system, the journal serves to focus research findings, discussions, and debates to account explicitly for human interactions with Earth’s systems. The aim is to provide a venue toward meeting one of the grand challenges of our time.

Anthropocene welcomes the following types of manuscripts:
– Original research articles that meet the Aims and Scope of the journal, with typical length of text in the 5000-7000 word range. Research articles may include specific case studies if these studies demonstrate theoretical significance and broad systemic relevance.
– Review papers and Prospects that assess the state of knowledge of a particular subfield or topic, that point toward future research needs and directions. These review articles, with a typical length within 8000 words, may include some new data or synthesis of existing data that produce new understanding.
– Short communications include commentaries and viewpoints on specific issues, discussions and replies of articles published in the journal, and shorter papers addressing timely topics that are reviewed and published rapidly. The length of these articles should be within 2000-4000 words.
