A new online publication that publishes summaries of peer-reviewed research spanning the natural and social sciences in leading academic journals aims to influence public policy and promote informed decision-making.
“The Yale Environment Review
will provide a forum for producing and disseminating concise summaries of cutting-edge research from around the world that will be of general interest to those engaged in the fields of environmental and natural resource management,” said Matthew Kotchen, executive editor and associate professor of environmental economics and policy at the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies.
The Yale Environment Review
won’t publish original research, but instead will provide brief, nontechnical commentaries on one or more published papers, with an emphasis on why the scientific findings are of general interest and relevant to policy and management. The weekly commentaries will be joined by a forum for moderated comments, questions and links to related content, and can be viewed at environment.yale.edu/yer
