Environmental Sciences: Overview

What's new?

The American Geophysical Union (AGU) and Wiley have partnered to launch a new Open Access (OA) peer-reviewed journal, Earth's Future.  Intended to span across disciplines, the journal will include peer-reviewed articles as well as editorials, essays, reviews, and commentaries.  Although the initial author processing charge per research paper will be $1,800, this will be waived for submissions received before September 1, 2013.
