SCOPE

As the world’s climate negotiators convene for COP27, a key theme to be addressed is the impact of climate change on human health and evidence-based solutions and adaptation actions. To help build a strong and openly accessible evidence base for decision-making, PLOS Climate and PLOS Global Public Health are calling for submissions for a new Collection on Climate Change and Human Health

We welcome submissions of research that addresses all aspects of the intersection between climate and health, from the changing burden of communicable and non-communicable disease to the impacts of extreme events on health systems, as well as research that assesses potential adaptations to build healthier and more resilient societies. 

RESEARCH TOPICS
‘Climate change is deepening existing health inequities and driving the emergence of novel health risks in new places and populations. Openly available and accessible scientific evidence— backed by political will and sustained funding — is urgently needed to build resilience in the health sector.’

JOURNAL INFORMATION

PLOS Climate will rapidly disseminate rigorous research, with a commitment to open research principles that empower academic researchers, policy-makers, governments, international organizations and industry to understand dynamic, changing climates and take positive, evidence-based action in the face of climate change. We will catalyze practical solutions and amplify perspectives from under-represented voices and regions about issues across the breadth of climate research.

Email questions to climate@plos.org

PLOS Global Public Health addresses deeply entrenched global inequities in public health and makes impactful research visible and accessible to health professionals, policy-makers, and local communities without barriers. We will amplify the voices of underrepresented and historically excluded communities and prioritize equity, diversity, and inclusion at all levels – editors, editorial boards, peer reviewers and authors – to broaden the range and diversity of perspectives at the forefront of public health and advance the health of all humankind.
