Topic: Opportunities for publishing in Nature Sustainability 

Speaker: Dr. Stephanie Olen/Associate Editor, Nature Sustainability

Time: 10:00-11:00, September 19 (Tuesday), 2023

Venue: S825, Mong Man Wai Technology Building, Tsinghua University 

Introduction to the Lecture:

Interested in publishing your work in a high-impact sustainability journal? Nature Sustainability publishes significant original research from a broad range of natural, social and engineering fields about sustainability, its policy dimensions and possible solutions. Understanding how to ensure the well-being of current and future generations within the limits of the natural world is the overarching goal of sustainability research, and Nature Sustainability aims to put the best sustainability research in front of a broad community of readers. Editor Stephanie Olen will outline the journal’s aims and scopes, with a particular emphasis on how it intersects with environmental and Earth science. An overview will be given of the journal’s article types for original research, as well as the opportunities for publishing opinions, perspectives, reviews, and other narrative manuscripts. After giving some guidelines and tips for writing an article in style and the submission process, Stephanie will be happy to field questions about the journal, the submission process, and relevant research.

Dr. Stephanie Olen joined Nature Sustainability in July 2021 and works primarily with research and opinion from Earth science, physical geography, climate science, and remote sensing, along a range of interdisciplinary contributions. Before joining the journal, Stephanie was a postdoc in the Remote Sensing of Earth Surface Processes research group at the University of Potsdam, in Potsdam, Germany, working on the application of satellite synthetic aperture radar to natural hazard monitoring and land surface classification in the Argentinian and Colombian Andes. Her doctoral work with Professors Manfred Strecker and Bodo Bookhagen focused on the interaction of climate, vegetation, and erosion on shaping the Himalayan front, applying geochemical analysis, remote sensing, and computational approaches to uncover the influence of the South Asian Monsoon System and vegetation on erosion rates in the central Himalaya. Prior to that, Stephanie worked with Professor Todd Ehlers at the University of Michigan and the University of Tübingen on modeling paleotopography in glacial mountains. This work incorporated optical and radar remote sensing, terrestrial cosmogenic nuclide, and low-temperature thermochronology. Originally from the Great Lakes region of the United States, Stephanie has been living and working in Germany for over a decade.
