Description
A new open-access scientific journal, Elementa: Science of the Anthropocene publishes original research reporting on new knowledge of the Earth’s physical, chemical, and biological systems; interactions between human and natural systems; and steps that can be taken to mitigate and adapt to global change. Elementa reports on fundamental advancements in research organized initially into six knowledge domains, embracing the concept that basic knowledge can foster sustainable solutions for society. Elementa is published on an open-access, public-good basis—available freely and immediately to the world.

Elementa welcomes the following types of manuscripts, all of which are peer reviewed:

  • Research Article, presenting the results of primary scientific research and typically following the format of a traditional research paper;
  • Review, presenting conceptual advances, syntheses, and integration of a field or topic;
  • Policy Bridge, articles focused on bridging scientific knowledge with policy issues, policy options, or policy analysis;
  • Practice Bridge, articles focused on bridging scientific knowledge with analysis of, challenges with, or opportunities for specific practices;
  • Commentary, explanatory essays, treatises, and opinion papers, typically invited by the Editors-in-Chief;
  • Comment & Reply, items of correspondence relating to Elementa articles and promoting discussion of relevant research, accompanied by author responses; and
  • Book Reviews, critical reviews of books relevant to Elementa, invited by the Editors-in-Chief.

Elementa also welcomes Special Features, a set of related articles addressing themes or projects of broad interest, typically 4–10 articles in each group, usually including a synthesizing Commentary. Special Features may fall within a single knowledge domain or be cross-listed under two or more domains; in either case, a single Editor-in-Chief will be responsible for the entire Special Feature. For more details, see our Special Features informational page.
