A Special Theme Issue of the journal, Coastal Management: “Making the
Connection: Translating Science into Effective Coastal Policy”
The Coastal Society’s TCS 22 Conference (June 13-16, 2010) in Wilmington, North
Carolina, will explore the issues involved in translating scientific knowledge
and perspectives into effective coastal management policies and practices in its
Closing Plenary session.
To more fully develop this theme, The Coastal Society invites submission of
full-length manuscripts for publication in a special, theme issue of the
journal, Coastal Management, a peer-reviewed international journal devoted to
exploring all aspects of coastal management. Papers addressing all aspects of
the application of scientific knowledge and perspectives to coastal management
policy and practice at local, regional, national, and/or international scales
are welcome. All submissions will go through standard double blind peer review.
The theme issue is scheduled to be published in early 2011 and is likely to
receive special publicity coverage by Taylor and Francis, which should help
raise the profile of theme issue papers. Submissions should follow the format
specified by Coastal Management in “Instructions to Authors”
(http://www.tandf.co.uk/journals/tf/08920753.html). Questions and submissions
may be directed to theme issue Guest Editors: Lawrence Cahoon, Professor of
Biology and Marine Biology, University of North Carolina Wilmington, Wilmington,
NC 28403 (Cahoon at uncw.edu), and Christopher Dumas, Professor of Economics,
University of North Carolina Wilmington, Wilmington, NC 28403 (DumasC at uncw.edu).
Please notify one of the guest editors of your intent to submit. Full
submissions are requested by Sept. 15, 2010.
