1. Pre-Publication Site Available
Elementa: Science of the Anthropocene
Open-Access Journal

The pre-publication site for 'Elementa: Science of the Anthropocene,' a
new, nonprofit, open-access journal, is now available. It can be found
at: http://www.elementascience.org.

Elementa will publish original research reporting on new knowledge of
the Earth's physical, chemical, and biological systems; interactions
between human and natural systems; and steps that can be taken to
mitigate and adapt to global change. It will also report on fundamental
advancements in research, organized initially into six knowledge domains
and embracing the concept that basic knowledge can foster sustainable
solutions for society. Further details on journal's scope, knowledge
domains, and Editors-in-Chief are available at:
http://elementascience.org.

Supported by BioOne, Elementa is the product of collaboration between
five academic institutions: Dartmouth, the Georgia Institute of
Technology, the University of Colorado Boulder, the University of
Michigan, and the University of Washington.

2. Call for Submissions
Climate, Special Issue
Emission Impacts on Aerosol-Climate Feedbacks

The journal 'Climate' announces a call for submissions for a special
issue entitled "Emission Impacts on Aerosol-Climate Feedbacks." Full
research papers or outstanding long reviews for peer-review and possible
publication are invited.

Emissions from anthropogenic and natural sources alter the composition
of the atmosphere and hence its radiative properties. In addition,
emitted particulate matter and gas-to-particle conversion may provide
cloud condensation nuclei that affect cloud and precipitation formation.
The main objective of this Special Issue is to discuss how past, current
and future changes in emissions at various scales affect climate in the
regions of the emissions themselves as well as in their downwind.

Submitted papers should not have been published previously, nor be under
consideration for publication elsewhere. This Special Issue will be
fully open access.

Submission deadline: 1 May 2013.

3. Call for Contributions
Recent Research Notes
Alaska Journal of Anthropology

The 'Alaska Journal of Anthropology' announces a call for contributions
to the publication's "Recent Research Notes" column. The Recent Research
section is intended to be a useful venue for making colleagues aware of
research, and for disseminating brief notes of new C14 dates or other
interesting finds, particularly those which do not seem likely to lead
to other publication.

Submissions should be brief (1-3 paragraphs maximum) reports on
upcoming, ongoing, or recently completed projects; new C-14 dates; or
laboratory findings that might be of interest to the arctic/subarctic
research community. Individuals can submit multiple notes if they have
different subjects. Information such as precise site locations, client's
names, or any other data that can be considered protected or proprietary
is not required. It is understood that in some cases project sponsors
need to review reports and give permission for such notes to be
published; as this process can take time, the word 'recent' will be
interpreted liberally to accommodate such cases.

Entries for the next issue need to be submitted by the end of March 2013.
Submissions received after that will be included in the following issue.

Submissions should be made to:

4. Call for Papers
The Barents Journal: Peoples, Economies, and Politics
First Issue, Autumn 2013

The Barents Journal, an international, multidisciplinary, academic
publication, announces a call for papers. This will be the first issue
of the journal, and publication is planned for autumn 2013.

The journal intends to deliver and discuss original and current research
results concerning the peoples, economies, and politics in the Barents
Euro-Arctic region. It will be published twice a year electronically and
as a paper version. It will be easily accessible, free of charge, and
distributed widely across the region and beyond. Each issue will contain
three or four peer-reviewed scientific articles, reviews on recent
regionally relevant books, news, announcements, and presentations of
current research, institutions, and significant projects.

Submissions related to the topic of regionalism in its diverse forms and
manifestations in the region are open. Editors are also open to new,
innovative, ground-breaking approaches to the study of the region,
regionalism, and regionalization.

Submission deadline: 15 May 2013.

Further information, including the full call for papers, is available
at: http://www.barentsinfo.org/barentsjournal.

Submissions should be sent to:
Monica Tennberg
