New journal “Change and Adaptation in Socio-Ecological Systems (CASES)"

CASES aims at offering a forum for R&D 

  • on changes that impact the functioning of socio-ecological systems such as climate change or global change and
  • on measures, strategies and policies in tackling and adaption to current and future changes. Focus is laid on inter- and trans-disciplinary work oriented on solving questions and problems, but also theoretical papers that provide in depth-analysis and concise overview are welcome.


More in detail, CASES addresses 

  1. observations on highly relevant global, regional and local drivers of changes and their effects on socio-ecological systems, 
  2. knowledge, techniques, approaches and concepts of how to further develop, manage and adapt socio-ecological systems in their political, cultural and natural context and
  3. approaches to assess the impact of changes and the efficiency of adaptation and management measures to ensure a sustainable system development.

The scope of CASES is to publish original papers, review and synthesis papers, short communications and research letters addressing an interdisciplinary point of view on change and adaptation of socio-ecological systems from management unit level to policy level.
Thematically, CASES aims to address all studies that have a focus on the impact of global change and climate change, on functioning or services of socio-ecological systems and related human-environment interactions, on understanding, monitoring and proposing innovative approaches, tools and technologies to adapt and bring forward system management and development.
