The Tyndall-edited interdisciplinary journal Global Environmental Change has reconfirmed its heavyweight status in the world's premier academic journals.
It is the most influential Geography journal, Environmental Studies journal, and fourth-highest Environmental Sciences journal in the world.
Global Environmental Change's Impact Factor has increased from 4.8 in 6.8 between 2010 and 2011, when it was already the top Geography and Environmental Studies journal, and this year has increased from 6th to 4th for Environmental Sciences (of 200 journals). The importance of journals is measured by their Impact Factor, a count by Thomson Reuters of the number of times a journal is quoted in other journals.
Global Environmental Change is Edited by Tyndall Centre Professors Neil Adger, Kate Brown and Declan Conway. Since their editorship began in 2004, Global Environmental Change's Impact Factor has increased from 1.0 to 6.8. Neil Adger and Kate Brown have recently joined the Faculty at Exeter University.
Professor Declan Conway said, "Global Environmental Change's year-on-year increase of Impact Factor demonstrates the intellectual demand for interdisciplinary research in the style of that the Tyndall Centre does so well; linking the policy and human dimensions of environmental change with insights from physical science ".
