Call for papers - Global change and sustainability transformations: technology-society interface

Director of the UN University – Institute for Environment and Human Security (UNU – EHS) , Professor Dirk Messner, is editor for a new journal, Global Perspectives (GP), launched by the University of California Press. It is an online-only, peer-reviewed, transdisciplinary journal that seeks to advance social science research in the context of globalization.

Dr. Messner edits a subject section on “Global change and sustainability transformations: technology-society interface“. The journal’s first edition will be published in early 2020 and it is currently welcoming submissions.

The transdisciplinary journal is seeking to advance social science research and debates in a globalizing world, specifically in terms of concepts, theories, methodologies, and evidence bases. Taking advantage of the multi-media publishing opportunities presented for academic journals today, works published in the journal are enriched by invited commentaries and annotations.

The national and disciplinary approaches that developed over the last century are increasingly insufficient to capture the complexities of the global realities of a world that has changed significantly. New concepts, approaches and forms of academic discourse may be called for. GP sets out to help overcome the national and disciplinary fragmentation and isolation of the social sciences.
