How will your research make an impact?
All Earth strives to understand the processes, systems, and challenges of our home planet, and the land, air, and water that sustain all life. The journal aims to bring together research exploring the complex individual and interacting components and forces of the earth, as well as investigating anthropogenic impacts and interactions. Submissions should actively contribute to the global policy priorities represented by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
All Earth is:
- Supporting the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals for positive societal impact, providing a platform for reaching policymakers and professionals who are tackling today’s problems.
- Pushing the boundaries of science by accepting submissions of negative/null data as well as replication and reproduction studies.
- Promoting better information sharing by mandating public availability of all data associated with submissions.
Have you considered:
- What are the broader implications of your work?
- How does your work contribute towards policy?
- How will your research support the policy priorities expressed in the UN SDGs?
Our ambition is to support the uptake of the latest original research across the Life, Earth & Environmental Sciences communities into evidence-based policy advice and decision-making so that we can collectively meet these urgent global needs.
