The international Open Access journal, Anthropocene Coasts, is jointly developed and co-owned by Canadian Science Publishing and East China Normal University. Professor Shu Gao and Professor Ian Townend are Editors for Anthropocene Coasts. The founding editor, Dr. Shu Gao, is affiliated to State Key Laboratory of Estuarine and Coastal Research (East China Normal University).
《人新世海岸》是由加拿大科学出版社和华东师范大学联合创刊的开放获取OA国际期刊。主编高抒教授， Ian Townend教授。河口海岸学国家重点实验室为创刊主编单位。
Anthropocene Coasts publishes multidisciplinary research that aims to understand and predict the effects of human activities, including climate change, on estuarine and coastal regions. Anthropocene Coasts publishes primary research articles, research reviews, topical communications, and letters.
The Anthropocene is the period during which human activities have had a marked environmental impact on the Earth, and Coasts embraces all aspects of the land–sea interface. Anthropocene Coasts therefore seeks to identify and document the influence of human activities on contemporary coastal processes (physical, biological and chemical processes across the land–sea interface) and the implications for other aspects of these systems including social, economic, and legal considerations.
Improved understanding of changes in the structure and function of systems and the cumulative impact of a succession of imposed changes is critical if adaptation to change is to be appropriate and timely. Anthropogenic effects on coastal regions can be difficult to define and there are often many differing perspectives on what constitutes appropriate solutions. Research that explores potential solutions to these complex issues is encouraged and can include topics such as:
- Changes in coastal hazard patterns and the implications for safety;
- The role of coastal ecosystem services and how these may change;
- Implications of population growth and urban expansion on the coast;
- Adaptation in response to change and methods to enhance coastal sustainability;
- Interactions with society (including aspects such as economics, policy/legislation and regulation, social mobility, technology, engineering and risk management);
- Observations, modelling and theoretical advances to better detect and understand change.
Submissions that do not have a clear human or multidisciplinary component are more suited to one of the existing discipline-based journals and are unlikely to be considered for publication.
In October 2018, the Scientific Steering Committee (SSC) meeting of "Future Earth Coasts (FEC)" was successfully held in the State Key Laboratory for Estuarine and Coastal Research, East China Normal University. The meeting has proposed the strategy of redrawing the blueprint for coasts of the future. As the only official affiliate academic journal of Future Earth Coasts, Anthropocene Coasts will serve this goal. The journal publishes multidisciplinary studies on the regime shift in response to concentrated human activities in the world estuarine and coastal regions, with the background of climate change.
2018年10月，“未来地球海岸（Future Earth Coasts）”科学指导委员会会议在华东师范大学河口海岸学国家重点实验室成功召开, 提出了河口海岸蓝图重绘的战略。作为Future Earth Coasts的唯一官方指定学术期刊，Anthropocene Coasts (中文译名:《人新世海岸》)也是为这一目标服务的。本刊关注气候变化背景下全球河口海岸区域人类活动集聚所导致的系统转换的多学科研究。
