Introducing Global Transitions! Our new forward-thinking journal connecting the health, energy and technology communities.

Published 10 October, 2018

At KeAi, we believe in a brighter future and our newest journal exemplifies our ambition to publish research that will help to shape the future.

The recently released IPCC report warns that timing of reducing greenhouse gases is critical and calls for urgent and unprecedented changes to reach the target of limiting global warming to 1.5C.

Under the editorial leadership of Prof. Kristie Ebi, Prof. Luisa F. Cabeza and Prof. Jin Chen, Global Transitions provides a platform to share actionable knowledge and forward-thinking perspectives on transitions in the broader fields of:


Truly trans-disciplinary, fully Open Access and published on Elsevier’s ScienceDirect, Global Transitions enhances a broader understanding of the impacts of natural and societal changes, and promotes transitions to a brighter future for everyone. Each section is led by a world-class Editor-in-Chief and is supported by a diverse Editorial Board.

The journal will waive all Article Processing Charges (APC) and will be free to publish in until the end of 2019.

Health Transitions, Editor-in-Chief

“Insights are needed to support effective transitioning to a sustainable, resilient and equitable future, at local to international scales, taking into consideration the profound changes taking place across human and natural systems. Population health and health systems are at a juncture. The last 150 years have seen substantial advances in human health: life expectancy has increased, infant mortality has declined, undernutrition is less widespread, and the burden of infectious diseases has reduced. Despite this overall progress, substantial improvements are still required.

The Health Transitions section of Global Transitions seeks papers exploring system-based approaches to protecting and promoting population health in the context of emerging and projected health-related changes, both within and outside health systems."

Energy Transitions, Editor-in-Chief

“I believe in a green energy transition for a more secure future. Energy is one of the most important resources in today’s society. We all need energy, but its creation and use have far-reaching implications for factors such as climate change, politics and many aspects of daily life.

The Energy Transitions section of Global Transitions seeks papers that take a multidisciplinary approach to mapping the changes taking place in our energy system."

Technology Transitions, Editor-in-Chief

“Climate change, energy security, transport and resource efficiency, food safety, and environmentally-friendly production; the one feature they all share is a dependency on existing and new technologies. In fact, technology has become the cornerstone of economic growth, social development, and the advancement of our civilization.

The Technology Transitions section of Global Transitions welcomes papers that explore all aspects of these topics."
