Wiley Interdisciplinary Reviews: Climate Change “offers a unique platform for exploring current and emerging knowledge from the many disciplines that contribute to our understanding of this phenomenon [climate change] – environmental history, the humanities, physical and life sciences, social sciences, engineering and economics.” In terms of relevance to i2S, the journal provides useful case examples of widely used concepts and methods relevant to i2S. For example, in 2014 these included communication of uncertainty, public engagement, trust and framing.

The journal “acts as a forum for gaining a wider set of perspectives about how climate change is understood, analyzed and contested around the world… Climate change has become one of the most visible phenomena in the world today, recognized through the changes occurring to physical climates, natural and managed environments and social organizations, and also through deliberations about ethical responsibility and public policy.”

The journal “has been developed in association with the Royal Meteorological Society and the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG [Institute of British Geographers]) in the UK”.
