Assistant Professor of Environmental Studies Stacy-ann Robinson has published a paper in the well-respected journal Wiley Interdisciplinary Reviews (WIREs): Climate Change. In reviewing 28 years of literature on climate change adaptation in small islands, Robinson finds that most island research has been published by scholars in the developed world. She calls for more island research from island scholars, and for such studies to be published in top-tier, high impact-factor journals as a way of legitimizing “island studies.” This, she argues, would help legitimize islands as early indicators of common global challenges.
