The Climate Change Research Network

Conference

Founded in 2009, the International Conference on Climate Change: Impacts & Responses aims to create an interdisciplinary forum for the discussion of climate change, its causes, its eco-systemic impacts, and its human impacts. The conference also explores technological, policy, strategic, and social responses to climate change.

The International Conference on Climate Change: Impacts & Responses is built upon four key features: Internationalism, Interdisciplinarity, Inclusiveness, and Interaction. Conference delegates include leaders in the field as well as emerging scholars, who travel to the conference from all corners of the globe and represent a broad range of disciplines and perspectives. A variety of presentation options and session types offer delegates multiple opportunities to engage, to discuss key issues in the field, and to build relationships with scholars from other cultures and disciplines.

Publishing

The Climate Change: Impacts & Responses Research Network enables members to publish through two media. First, network members can enter a world of journal publication unlike the traditional academic publishing forums—a result of the responsive, non-hierarchical, and constructive nature of the peer review process. The International Journal of Climate Change: Impacts and Responses provides a framework for double-blind peer review, enabling authors to publish into an academic journal of the highest standard. The second publication medium is through the Climate Change Book Imprint, publishing cutting edge books in print and electronic formats. Publication proposal and manuscript submissions are welcome.

Community

The Climate Change: Impacts & Responses Research Network offers several opportunities for ongoing communication among its members. Any member may upload video presentations based on scholarly work to the network YouTube channel. Quarterly email newsletters contain updates on conference and publishing activities as well as broader news of interest. Join the conversations on Facebook and Twitter, or explore our new social media platform, Scholar.
