This new article collection in Frontiers in Forests and Global Change aims at collecting recent advances in research to improve our understanding of the effects from the various aspects global change has on protective mountain forests, as individual or interacting factors.

Abstract Submission Deadline 18 November 2022
Manuscript Submission Deadline 20 January 2023

This MDPI Special Issue in Geosciences will present pioneering research on the changing cryosphere in mountains and its socio-ecological impacts. We welcome contributions considering the earth and space sciences as well as inter- and transdisciplinary studies.

Deadline for manuscript submissions: 25 October 2022.

This MDPI Special Issue in Remote Sensing aims to represent the frontier in remote sensing research on the cryosphere. Cryospheric science is an interdisciplinary earth science, and we welcome authors from disciplines such as geology, hydrology, meteorology, and climatology, as well as from other disciplines such as biology, engineering, and environmental science.

Deadline for manuscript submissions: 31 December 2022.

This MRD focus issue will contribute to a better understanding of restoration in mountains by including critical reviews of concepts and approaches that address conditions, practices, challenges, and opportunities for integrated recovery and restoration of mountain landscapes, biodiversity, livelihoods, and cultures.

Full paper submission deadline is 1 November 2022.

The International Glaciological Society (IGS) will prepare a special issue of the Annals of Glaciology with the theme ‘Ice, Snow, Water, and Permafrost in a Warming World’.

Manuscript submission deadline is 31 December 2022.

This Special Issue of the journal Natural Hazards and Earth System Sciences aims to compile recent research that estimates and predicts natural hazards and risks in the Himalayan region.

Extreme hydrometeorological and geomorphological events account for 45 % of the fatalities and 79 % of the economic losses caused by natural hazards. Exacerbated by high seismic activity, rugged terrain such as the Himalayan landscape is particularly susceptible to generating these events, which often transform into cascading hazards where an initial event causes a downstream chain reaction (Shugar et al., 2021). These hazards interfere with increasing population pressure and expansion of settlements along rivers and new infrastructure developments such as roads and hydropower projects. Rising temperatures and changes in weather patterns in the wake of global warming likely elevate risks from hazards such as landslides, glacial lake outburst floods, riverine, and flash floods (Kraaijenbrink et al., 2017). The complexity of these hazards and their underlying processes demand scientific efforts and approaches from multiple disciplines.

This article collection in the journal Current Opinion in Environmental Sustainability seeks contributions that synthesize what we know, and what we don’t yet know, about social transformations in the context of diverse sustainability challenges.

This article collection in the journal Sustainable Earth aims to examine and improve the learning of sustainability.

Learning is a relatively new concern in sustainability.  Much attention has been given to sustainability education, especially in tertiary education, but rather less on how people learn about sustainability and learn to become sustainable, especially from experience.

The Journal of Hydrology: Regional Studies solicits submissions to a special issue on 'Integrating Water Resources Research and Management in the Central and South American Andes,' guest-edited by MRI Co-PI and Conéctate A+ Co-Head Christian Huggel and Conéctate A+ Associate Partner Fabian Drenkhan.  

The Swiss Journal of Geosciences is an international fully Open Access peer-reviewed journal and publishes original research and review articles, with a particular focus on the evolution of the Tethys realm and the Alpine/Himalayan orogen.

The Swiss Journal of Geosciences has editorial waivers available for outstanding contributions and review articles from researchers who lack funding for fully OA publication.

This Scientific Reports Collection in the journal Nature provides a platform for interdisciplinary studies of mountain surface processes and their responses to climate change and human activities.

Submissions are welcome on a rolling basis.
