ERL launches video editorials

By Liz Kalaugher

According to Time magazine, five years ago saw the invention of a low-allergy cat, solid coffee and a motorized inflatable pool lounger. Perhaps more significantly, it was also the birth-year of Environmental Research Letters (ERL), environmentalresearchweb‘s sister open-access journal.

To celebrate five years of publishing high-quality research, ERL has launched its first video editorial from Editor-in-Chief Dan Kammen of the University of California, Berkeley. In “It takes a community to define a discipline” Dan discusses the factors he feels make ERL unique – fast publication times, broad coverage, a high-quality interdisciplinary editorial board, good visibility for articles, and access for all. You can also read Dan’s complementary traditional editorial.

Dan’s video marks the launch of video abstracts for ERL, an exciting new feature for 2012, a year which will also see focus issues on topics such as second-generation biofuels, biodiversity, human health and well-being, and environmental risks and migration.
