Co-edited journal ranked top in Geography and Environmental Studies
The interdisciplinary journal Global Environmental Change, which I co-edit with Neil Adger (Geography at Exeter) and Declan Conway (International Development at UEA) has been confirmed as the top journal in Geography with the release of the latest impact factors. Impact factors measure the citations to papers published within the journal and reflect the importance of the work within and across disciplines. Global Environmental Change, with an Impact Factor of 6.87, ranks as first in Geography out of 73 journals; as first in Environmental Studies out of 89 journals and 4th in Environmental Sciences out of 205 journals.
This fantastic achievement is the outcome of much hard work by the journal staff – particularly Neil Jennings our Managing Editor – and our international Editorial Board. The high regard for work in the journal demonstrates that interdisciplinary analysis is the way forward on global challenges such as resource scarcity, ecosystem services and climate change.
