Environmental science is a fast-moving field and a hot topic in the news. There are plenty of sites devoted to the latest developments in the science, the politics and the innovations of this booming field. Here we recommend some environmental science news and blogs to keep you up to date.
- Many print publications put article abstracts online for free but require a paid subscription for full access. Ask the librarian at your school or university, or your employer, if they hold an institutional subscription; often this will allow you access for free.
- There’s also a movement of open-access journals that don’t charge for use, making research accessible for everyone. The Directory of Open Access Journals has a helpful list of peer-reviewed, open-access journals on environmental science.
- Not surprisingly, the environmental science blogosphere is dominated by climate science and climate change. But that’s by no means the limit of environmental science. If you’re having trouble finding what you’re looking for, refine your search by focusing on a specific issue or region, as many environmental blogs are specialized and/or locally focused.
