CALL FOR AUTHORS: Encyclopedia of Global Warming and Climate Change, Second Edition

From H-Env:

“We are inviting academic editorial contributors to the Encyclopedia of Global Warming and Climate Change, the second edition of the 3-volume reference to be published in 2012 by SAGE Publications.

This comprehensive work will be marketed and sold to college, public, and academic libraries and includes some 700 articles, covering all aspects of the world environment and related disciplines in the social sciences, including terms and practices, profiles of climate change by country, biographies, and descriptions of environmental organizations. We are now making final assignments with a deadline of July 6, 2011.

Each article, ranging from 700 to 5,000 words, is signed by the contributor. The General Editor of the encyclopedia is S. George Philander, Ph.D., Princeton University,
who will review all the articles for editorial content and academic consistency.

If you are interested in contributing to the encyclopedia, it can be a notable publication addition to your CV/resume and broaden your publishing credits. Payment for the articles are honoraria that range from a $50 book credit at Sage Publications for article submissions totaling 500 to 1,000 words up to free access to the online edition of the encyclopedia for contributions over 10,000 words. More than this, your involvement can help assure that credible and detailed data, descriptions, and analysis are available to students of climate issues.

The list of available articles (Excel file) and Style Guidelines are prepared and will be sent to you in response to your inquiry. Please then select which unassigned articles may best suit your interests and expertise.

If you would like to contribute to building a truly outstanding reference with the Encyclopedia of Global Warming and Climate Change, please contact me by the e-mail information below. Please provide a very brief summary of your background in climate change issues. Thanks for your time and interest.
