Callaghan, Max W.; et al. (2020): A topography of climate change research

Callaghan, Max W.; Minx, Jan C.; Forster, Piers M. (2020): A topography of climate change research. In Nat. Clim. Chang. 77, p. 252. DOI: 10.1038/s41558-019-0684-5.

"We use topic modelling to draw a topic map, or topography, of over 400,000 publications from the Web of Science on climate change. We update current knowledge on the IPCC, showing that compared with the baseline of the literature identified, the social sciences are in fact over-represented in recent assessment reports. Technical, solutions-relevant knowledge—especially in agriculture and engineering—is under-represented."
