In the Forum section, original papers are published including essays, pointed expressions of opinion and reactions to articles that have appeared in recent GAIA issues. As such, the Forum aims to challenge current understandings by providing a “forum” to articulate substantiated opinions and controversial issues, to identify new problems, and to establish actual contexts.
Generally, articles are double-blind peer reviewed.
Articles – including references – should not exceed the length of 24,000 characters (including spaces).
Forum section editors: Tobias Mickler, Martina Blum, Ulrike Sehy
