Kudos and Impact Science have announced that American Society of Civil Engineers, Annual Reviews, BioOne and the Geological Society have signed up to join the Climate Change Knowledge Cooperative. This fast-growing initiative will shortly launch at climate-change.info. It will provide a substantial and wide-ranging collection of plain language summaries of key climate research. The research has been specially selected and professionally summarized to ensure the broadest possible audience can find it, understand it, and act on its recommendations.
“Civil engineers are at the forefront of researching and building a sustainable world, and part of our job at ASCE is to share that important information with the wider public,” says Dana Compton, Managing Director and Publisher for the American Society of Civil Engineers. “We’re excited about participating in the Climate Change Knowledge Cooperative because it’s a powerful and practical way to make research work harder for the public good.”
“BioOne proudly represents more than 150 scientific societies in the biological, environmental, and ecological sciences. Their 200+ publications share critical field research from diverse natural environments around the globe, including mountains, oceans, jungles, forests, and grasslands,” remarks Susan Skomal, Ph.D., President / CEO of BioOne. “Through these direct observations, we have a front row seat to the impact of climate change on plants, animals, and humans alike. BioOne is honored to join the Climate Change Knowledge Cooperative so we may share their work more broadly.”
