Welcome to our call for artists and scientists on Forests and Climate Change.
We invite scientists around the world to consider submitting manuscripts for the upcoming Climanosco Research Articles collection “Entangled Forests”.
Climanosco Research Articles is a new open-access journal publishing outreach articles written by researchers for a broad audience.
We welcome manuscripts on forests and climate change for this collection, including the physical, chemical, biological, and/or socio-economical aspects.
Manuscripts will reflect recent scientific research published in recognized peer-reviewed journals. They will be approximately 1500 words (3 pages), written in a language accessible to the general public. They may include pictures, illustrations, and videos. Manuscripts may be either an introduction to well-established knowledge, a general overview of an area of research, or a more detailed dive into specific facets of an area of research.
Scientists participating in this call will have the opportunity to collaborate with artists and their manuscripts included alongside artworks in the upcoming art & science exhibition “Dear 2050: Entangled Forests”.
We are in our second round of this call for scientists in 2023 and we are still accepting manuscripts!
Please notify us of your intention to participate as soon as possible.
Find all details of this call in our invitation letter for scientists.
