CALL FOR AUTHORS – Encyclopedia of Global Warming and Climate Change, 2nd Ed.

We are inviting academic editorial contributors to the Encyclopedia of Global Warming and Climate Change, the second edition of the 3-volume reference to be published in 2012 by SAGE Publications.  (The first edition of the encyclopedia can be found here.)  This comprehensive work will be marketed and sold to college, public, and academic libraries, and includes some 700 articles covering all aspects of the world environment and related disciplines in the social sciences, including terms and practices, profiles of climate change by country, biographies, and descriptions of environmental organizations.  If you are interested in contributing to the encyclopedia, it can be a notable publication addition to your CV/resume and broaden your publishing credits.  Payment for the articles are honoraria that range from a $50 book credit at Sage Publications for article submissions totaling 500 to 1,000 words up to free access to the online edition of the encyclopedia for contributions over 10,000 words.  More than this, your involvement can help assure that credible and detailed data, descriptions, and analysis are available to students of climate issues.  Each article, ranging from 700 to 5,000 words, is signed by the contributor. The General Editor of the encyclopedia is S. George Philander, Ph.D., Princeton University, who will review all the articles for editorial content and academic consistency.
