The editorial team listed below invites prospective researchers from various disciplines to submit manuscripts on the diverse aspects of the topic „Futures of Global Risks.“
The submissions could address methodological questions related to future-oriented risk research, as well as foresight into the developmental dynamics of specific risks such as poverty, hunger, disease, inequalities (including aspects like work quality, education, gender relations, income, etc.), climate change, migration, fossil energy sources, inhumane working conditions, hazardous technological consequences and inadequate infrastructure. As a consequence also democratic challenges could be a topic addressed.
These prospective analyses and forecasts could focus on the theoretical foundations of respective risk discourses or concrete (economic, ecological, technical, political, legal, social, etc.) measures for problem-solving or risk reduction. Studies examining the impact of global risks on specific habitats or populations as well as the subjective and individual handling of global risks (e.g. future anxieties, resiliencies) are of interest as well.
- The European Journal of Futures Research will publish the submissions in a separate Topical Collection.
- Submission deadline: April 30th, 2024
The manuscripts can be submitted with the Springer Open submission-form of the European Journal of Futures Research. Submission guidelines such as recommend length of articles (which should be approximately 8,000 words long or within a range of 6,000–10,000 words, excluding references), manuscript preparation, references and citation and general formatting information etc. can be found at EJFR Submission Guidelines (2. research article).
