The objective of the journal Global and Planetary Change is to achieve a multidisciplinary view of the causes, processes and limits of variability in planetary change. The journal focuses on the record of change in earth history and its global implications, and the analysis and prediction of recent/future globally relevant change. Topics include, but are not limited to, changes in the dynamics and chemical composition of the oceans and atmosphere, climate change, sea level, global geophysics and tectonics, global ecology, biogeography and resilience.
Key criteria for manuscript consideration is (a) the global scope of the work and/or (b) the implications for global scale problems, combined with (c) having a significance beyond a single discipline and (d) a clear focus on the causes, processes and limits of planetary scale change. Manuscripts can be submitted as either research contributions or as review articles. Every effort should be directed towards presenting problems and results for a broad readership. Part of the intent of Global and Planetary Change is for new discoveries or progress in one discipline to foster advances, or act as a catalyst, in understanding the earth as a coupled system.
