ISRIC World Soil Museum can now be visited virtually

The World Soil Museum of ISRIC – World Soil Information in Wageningen can now be visited online. The museum has a collection of reference soil profiles from around the world. These 3D profiles, or monoliths, are used to explain main soil forming factors and to show the importance of the soil for ensuring food security, mitigating climate change, or in terms of their cultural value. The museum, the collection, including the objects in the collection storage – normally off limits to visitors – can now be visited online. You can explore the museum as part of an online tour and search for specific data and information on each soil profile. Further, you can also view profiles from the storeroom which houses the majority of the collection, and obtain a complete overview of the soil profiles by country or soil type. This means you can put together your own ex hibition for your studies or as a work project. The virtual tour is available in English. The scope of the virtual tour will be gradually extended.

Environment and History Impact Factor

I hope you will be as delighted as I am to hear that Environment and History has just received its 2015 Impact Factor - a fantastic 0.811, up from 0.778 last year (our first ever Impact Factor). This is super news and I’d like to thank you all, and all our referees and authors, for the efforts that have led to this result. It is no small achievement for an  independently published journal to achieve such a result among titles published by resource-rich and data-savvy behemoths like Elsevier, etc. 

Our rankings in subject categories are a phenomenal 5 of 87 in History and 90 of 104 in (the much more scientifically-focused) Environmental Studies.

We would be grateful if you could share this good news with your networks, including by social media if you use it.
