One Earth is a new monthly journal from Cell Press, publishing significant original research that seeks to understand and address today’s environmental grand challenges. The journal publishes across the full spectrum of global environmental change and sustainability science, providing a single platform to unite research from the natural, social, and applied sciences that seeks to identify and understand:

  • the drivers, mechanisms, rates, potential thresholds, and long-term context of global environmental change.
  • safe planetary operating spaces that support long-term human and environmental well-being.
  • barriers against and strategies that enable the sustainable development of Earth’s ecosystems and natural assets.
  • transformative social, political, economic, and technological pathways towards a sustainable and equitable future.

In addition to publishing original research, One Earth facilitates cross-community dialogue through the publication of opinion pieces, review articles, educational resources, and discussions, surfacing different perspectives on topics of socio-environmental importance.

While disciplinary studies will certainly be considered, we particularly encourage submissions with interdisciplinary interest. All submissions must provide a significant contribution to our understanding of contemporary and future environmental change and/or sustainability pathways. Studies conducted at all spatial, temporal, and socio-political scales will be considered. We are open to submissions on all relevant topics, and are particularly interested in the following areas of research:

  • Climate change dynamics, mitigation, and adaptation
  • Air, water, and soil pollution
  • Global change ecology, biodiversity, and conservation
  • Food and water security
  • Renewable energy systems
  • Land use, land use change, and forestry
  • Governance, policy, and international relations
  • Societal resilience, risk management, and sustainable communities
  • Urban metabolism, the built environment, and societal well-being
  • Sustainable production, consumption, and waste management
  • Industrial and technological innovations for the Earth system.

As a sister journal to CellOne Earth is committed to the high-quality publishing values synonymous with the Cell Press brand and strives to publish top-tier original research and provide a fair, rapid, and rigorous peer-review process via a dedicated team of professional editors.
