ScienceOpen is committed to enriching its network of 81+ million publications further, on topics that matter, and with an innovative infrastructure that facilitates scientific exchange. PLOS has just joined our network with a great new collection on Climate Change and Human Health.
PLOS Climate and PLOS Global Public Health are seeking submissions for a new collection titled “Climate Change and Human Health.” The journals welcome research submissions that address all aspects of the intersection of climate and health, from the changing burden of communicable and non-communicable disease to the effects of extreme events on health systems, as well as research that evaluates potential adaptations to build healthier and more resilient societies.
Discover the collection through the highlighted titles below:
- Towards improved understanding of cascading and interconnected risks from concurrent weather extremes: Analysis of historical heat and drought extreme events
- Urban climate-health governance: Charting the role of public health in large global city adaptation plans
- Including mental health as part of climate change impacts and adaptation assessment: A critical advance in IPCC AR6
- The seasonality of infections in tropical Far North Queensland, Australia: A 21-year retrospective evaluation of the seasonal patterns of six endemic pathogens
- Investigating the role of climate-related disasters in the relationship between food insecurity and mental health for youth aged 15–24 in 142 countries
We are excited to work with ScienceOpen to help us bring much-needed attention to science that affects all of usRebecca Kirk, Publisher, PLOS.
PLOS Climate aims to disseminate rigorous research rapidly, with an emphasis on open research principles that enable the scholarly community and industry to understand dynamic, changing climates and take positive, evidence-based action in the face of climate change.
We will catalyze practical solutions and amplify perspectives from under-represented voices and regions about issues across the breadth of climate research.PLOS Climate
PLOS Global Health addresses deeply entrenched global inequities in public health and makes impactful research visible and accessible to health professionals, policy-makers, and local communities without barriers.
We will amplify the voices of underrepresented and historically excluded communities and prioritize equity, diversity, and inclusion at all levelsPLOS Global Public Health
Both journals publish work that is methodologically rigorous and adheres to the principles of transparency and ethics that are the bedrock of trust and progress. They also publish original research articles as well as editorials, opinions, and reviews on a regular basis.
Visit the collection of Climate Change and Human Health and hit the ‘Submit Manuscript’ button for more details. Make sure to follow the collection and recommend it to peers and stay up-to-date with the newest publications by PLOS.
