As a Nature Publishing Group (NPG) customer, we would like to let you know that with the publication of the first issue imminent, the first Nature Climate Change articles are now available free to view online, ahead of print. They are:
Entitled ‘Environmental Policy: Past, Present, and Future’, the special issue of ES&T recognises closure of a ‘green’ decade in which people became more aware of environmental issues, and society marked the 40th anniversaries of Earth Day, the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Topics range from the mysterious disorder decimating honey bee colonies to ways to choose and manage energy sustainably. Those marked “Feature” are written in a less technical style and suitable for general readers, including students and non-scientists.
In addition to scientific research articles and features, the issue will include articles on policy analysis and critical reviews on environmental science and engineering. It will also review the history and directions of environmental policies.”
“Knovel has just wrapped up a very busy year and is looking forward to helping our customers achieve their goals for 2009. Our focus is to help make users more productive in their work— in the office, out in the field, around the world. Last year we enhanced Knovel to make it faster and more flexible. We upgraded the functionality of interactive tables and doubled the amount of technical content on our site.
