The Earth System Governance Project has launched a new online working paper series. This series is open to all colleagues who seek to contribute to the research agenda of the Project and its Science and Implementation Plan.

In addition to regular scientific texts, the working paper format allows for publications of ideas and concepts that are not yet fully developed into a comprehensive journal article. Published as working paper, these ideas can be introduced to and receive valuable feedback and suggestions from the community of earth system governance researchers. Working papers can also have a more political character than regular scientific publications. All publications in the working paper series will add to the growing body of literature on earth system governance, and will substantially contribute to a better understanding of the challenges of earth system governance.

Submissions are welcome at any time at All papers will be peer-reviewed. The Earth System Governance Project does not assume the copyright for working papers, and we expect that most working papers will eventually find their way into scientific journals or become chapters in edited volumes compiled by the Project and its members. For the current list of working papers and for more information on the submission procedure and guidelines for contributors, please see → here.
