Taylor & Francis Announces Environmental Sciences Call for Papers as a Call to Action to Save the Planet

Taylor & Francis (T&F) today announced an ongoing Call for Papers in Environmental Sciences as a call to action for critical scientific research from authors to save the planet.

“Taylor & Francis is distinguished in the scholarly publishing industry by partnering with researchers to accelerate and apply their knowledge to improve humanity and human progress,” said Liz Marchant, Global Portfolio Director, Life, Earth & Environmental Sciences, Taylor & Francis. “We invite authors and experts, including early-career researchers, to publish in the T&F Environmental Sciences Journals Portfolio, propelling their research to a global audience and contributing to scientific breakthroughs.”

Meteorologist Douglas Hilderbrand, with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s National Weather Service, who has published in the Taylor & Francis Environmental Sciences Portfolio, said: "Having my article, Building a Weather-Ready Nation One Ambassador at a Time, published by Taylor & Francis was a top career accomplishment - something I am very proud of. The process of getting ideas into print seemed daunting at first, but the T&F Editors eased my fears with their personalized guidance and collaboration along the way."

To optimize exposure and reach, researchers are encouraged to publish open access, where articles typically receive 95 percent more citations and more than seven times the downloads compared to articles not published open, according to industry data.

The Environmental Sciences Portfolio at Taylor & Francis was established in the 1990s. The portfolio has more than 2,300 books, over 120 journals, and 144,000 peer-reviewed articles and a worldwide following of faculty, students, researchers, and professionals.

T&F publishes a broad range of topics in this subject area, including environmental policy, bioremediation, environmental communications, environmental technology, environmental management & planning, environmental health, environmental toxicology, soil, ecosystem services, and sustainability & development.
