No one knows exactly how many journal articles are published annually, but estimates based on database searches suggest well over a million a year. With this remarkable growth in new scholarship, how do we know what we already know—i.e., how can we ensure that we’re seeing all the literature on a particular topic?
Climate change, aka global warming, is a hot topic. Here at Mann, we spent the year “Thinking Creatively about Climate Change,” our theme for the varied events and exhibits we sponsored with different departments & programs across campus. So as Slope Day and graduation arrive, marking the end of the academic year, we offer these highlights of the 2015/16 program.
