Surveys and Perspectives Integrating Environment and Society (SAPIENS)

Contact Person: Gaëll Mainguy

Aims and Scope

With 2.5 million scientific articles per annum, neither information nor access to information is a limiting factor so much as critical analysis of scientific content. By providing readers with clear access to relevant advances of disciplines other than their own, SAPIENS wishes to influence thinking in core scientific areas while creating and strengthening links to other disciplines.

SAPIENS publishes critical state of the art (Surveys, Analyses, Introductions) and evidence-based opinions (Perspectives, Views, Book Reviews). Given the breadth of our readership, particular attention is devoted to present concepts, methods and their limits.

SAPIENS was published by Copernicus Publications until 2008 and is now available at:
