World Environmental Days 2021

Content and resources

We celebrate global environmental days like Earth Day, World Environment Day, World Ocean Day and others, which focus not only on the need to reduce our impact on the planet as we recover from the effects of Covid-19, but also on how we can play a role in repairing the damage we’ve done by exploring natural processes, emerging green technologies, and innovative thinking that can restore the world’s ecosystems.

To support and celebrate these global environmental days, we’ve pulled together key content resources, including interviews with experts in the field, the latest research and tools & resources to share with your users.

How the Review journals support your users

Reviews are an invaluable resource to get an in-depth update on a specific topic. Providing everything your users need to know on a subject in one place, they include clear and attractive figures that are an excellent resource for understanding and for using in talks and teaching. 

At Nature Reviews in particular, authors are asked to offer their own insights and to critique the data as well as describing the field. In that way, your user knows that they are getting a thorough, timely, expert-led view of the topic.

Celebrating the first anniversary of Nature Reviews Earth & Environment

Nature Reviews Earth & Environment aims to collate the rapidly growing literature discussing all aspects of Earth and environmental science. A prime objective of the journal is to encourage Earth scientists to work with broader communities to better understand the interactions between the natural environment and society.

To celebrate the first anniversary of Nature Reviews Earth & Environment, the editors have put together a collection showcasing the range of topics published, including a video with some of our highlights from the past year. View here
