Responding to Climate Change

Curated Collections

Few areas can benefit as much from the force of Open Access as climate change research: the combination of public, scientific, and governmental interest with the mounting misinformation, unsubstantiated opinions, and unsourced data make public access to original, well-reported, and peer-reviewed climate change research of utmost importance. This collection comprises of climate research highlighting efforts from a range of disciplines (alternative energy production, geoengineering, behavioural psychology and science policy) focussed on mitigating and adapting to the effects of the changing climate. PLOS ONE's wide scope and broad publication criteria make it a perfect venue to collate and curate relevant articles in these vastly differing areas of research. Our hope is that by encouraging and facilitating further research, replication, this collection will become a catalyst for continued climate research and policy formation.
