Item #d94mar113

This issue of the GCCD introduces a modified format for the Professional Publications section that should enable us to list papers sooner after publication and various topics more frequently, particularly those likely to be of wider interest. Over the nearly six years of publication of GCCD, the number of relevant publications has increased several fold. The new format is based on criteria which have always governed the priority given to papers in the past and which contribute to the goals of GCCD.

Papers will appear in three main categories. General interest papers are those judged to be of potential interest to readers of all backgrounds, because of their interdisciplinary nature, or implications for policy or research. They will be listed in a separate section (usually containing several subtopics) at the start of each issue. Regular papers, to appear under major topic headings, are more focused and most likely to be of interest to readers following those topics. They may have interdisciplinary content. Specialty papers are the most narrowly focused, judged to be of interest to readers actually working within a specialty. They will appear in smaller type size under the same topic headings used for regular papers, and will be annotated only if the titles are not self-explanatory.

Priority in this issue has been given to papers in the first two categories because of the backlog that has accumulated. Special journal issues (e.g., Ambio, this month) will still be listed under their own headings as warranted.
