IEAM Introduces New Feature, "Debates, Dilemmas, and Discoveries"
Monday, May 18, 2020
We are excited to announce a change at Integrated Environmental Assessment and Management (IEAM)!
Starting in the July issue, the Learned Discourses feature will be replaced with a new section titled: Debates, Dilemmas, and Discoveries (3D). Contributions should answer the “so what?” question, and should encourage readers to think, challenge them to do better science, and motivate them to excel in the ways in which they apply science to environmental assessment and management.
The new feature will provide a platform to:
- Report on progress in field and laboratory research
- Explore new or emerging research questions
- Provide opinions and perspectives on a range of environmental topics
- Debate issues
- Spotlight management policies and practices
- Share challenges and insights on biology, chemistry, ecology, engineering and sustainability
The Debates, Dilemmas, and Discoveries section offers rapid publication on compelling and timely issues. Senior editors who manage this feature will review all submissions; they will not be sent out for external peer review. Submissions should be concise (maximum ~1000 words), include one figure or table, and written for a broad audience of policy makers, scientists, and business professionals. Solicited content may include specific topics, “point-counterpoint” debates, and summaries of technical workshops and meetings.
We are committed to the long tradition at SETAC of encouraging environmental scientists and professionals to engage in open communication of data, ideas, and innovations. Please read through the author instructions before you submit your work directly to 3D editors.
We invite you to join the global environmental science conversation at IEAM.
