A new open-access scientific journal, Elementa: Science of the Anthropocene will publish original research reporting on new knowledge of the Earth’s physical, chemical, and biological systems; interactions between human and natural systems; and steps that can be taken to mitigate and adapt to global change. Elementa will report on fundamental advancements in research organized initially into six knowledge domains, embracing the concept that basic knowledge can foster sustainable solutions for society. Elementa is published on an open-access, public-good basis—available freely and immediately to the world.
Elementa welcomes the following types of manuscripts:
- Research Article, presenting the results of primary scientific research and typically following the format of a traditional research paper;
- Review, presenting conceptual advances, syntheses, and integration of a field or topic;
- Policy Bridge, articles focused on bridging scientific knowledge with policy issues, policy options, or policy analysis;
- Commentary, explanatory essays, treatises, and opinion papers invited by the Editors-in-Chief;
- Comment & Reply, items of correspondence relating to Elementa articles and promoting discussion of relevant research, accompanied by author responses; and
- Special Feature, collections of articles addressing themes of broad interest, typically 4–10 articles in each collection, linked by keywords and preceded by a short introduction.
Elementa’s inaugural knowledge domains are led by prominent researchers, each embracing the concept that basic knowledge can foster sustainable solutions for society and committed to the proposition that the goals of scientific inquiry are well aligned with the principles of open knowledge for the public good on a global basis.
