Call for papers


The scientific committee of Le Climatoscope, a French-language popular scientific journal on climate change, is currently inviting submissions for its Fall 2023 issue.

To mark the journal’s 5th anniversary, the issue will be launched at the Adaptation Futures 2023 conference organized by Ouranos in partnership with the Government of Canada and the World Adaptation Science Programme (WASP), to be held from October 2 to 6, 2023, in Montreal.

Adaptation to climate change is a main focus of the issue, and we particularly welcome proposals for articles on themes such as: risk management, resilience, local and indigenous knowledge, loss and damage, equity and justice, nature-based solutions, finance and governance.

This 5th anniversary issue, produced in collaboration with the ministère des Relations internationales et de la Francophonie du Québec (MRIF) (Ministry of Foreign Affairs), seeks to highlight international scientific production, and will appear in both English and French editions. We welcome proposals for articles in either language and Le Climatoscope team will assure translation of all accepted papers.
