Subject:        Call for papers: Human Dimensions in Geosciences


I am guest editing a special theme for a GSA journal. If you think the 
CLEAN list would be interested, would you mind posting this announcement? 
Feel free to disseminate elsewhere, as well.


GEOSPHERE is an online journal published by the Geological Society of 
America (ISI impact = 2.7). The Human Dimensions in Geosciences theme is 
intended to bring together research that sits at the boundary between 
geoscience, broadly construed, and social science. This offers an 
opportunity for communication, education, sociology, anthropology, or 
similar scholars to interact with each other and reach mainstream 
scientists. I was hoping you or colleagues would be interested in this 
publication venue. I would personally love to see work from many different 
communities come together in GEOSPHERE to help build connections across 
our different, yet very similar, research fields. 


GEOSPHERE - a journal of the Geological Society of America - periodically 
runs theme-specific issues. These “issues” contain collections of articles 
devoted to the same topic or region and span multiple issues of the 
journal. Papers are published in regular Geosphere issues as they are 
accepted, and then each themed issue appears on a separate web page where 
all themed-issue papers are grouped. Theme issues remain open for two or 
more years and submissions are accepted on a rolling basis, allowing 
authors to submit manuscripts as work is completed rather than to meet a 
specific deadline.
Guest Editors:
Julie Libarkin, libarkin at msu.edu
Renee Clary, RClary at geosci.msstate.edu
Suzanne O'Connell, soconnell at wesleyan.edu
This themed issue will focus on the research that occurs at the interface 
between geoscience, broadly construed, and social science. Political 
science, education, history, philosophy, communication, information 
science, diversity studies, and similar fields can help illuminate some of 
the most vexing issues facing the geosciences. Best practices for 
communicating climate science, for example, emerge when deep understanding 
of geoscience intersects graphic design. Similarly, the solutions to the 
immediate and future need to train more geoscience students may lie in 
lessons already learned by diversity and access scholars. This special 
issue will provide a venue for researchers investigating human dimensions 
in geoscience to share research findings with each other and the broader 
geoscience community. We encourage submission of high quality research 
that sits at the interface between geoscience and social science, 
including science communication, science policy, history and philosophy of 
science, learning in formal and informal settings, diversity in science, 
and similar fields.
To submit a paper for this issue, go to 
www.editorialmanager.com/geosphere/ and be sure to note in your cover 
letter that this submission is for the “Human Dimensions in Geoscience” 
themed issue. This special issue will remain open for two years and 
submissions will be accepted on a rolling basis.
