IntroductionSteve Yearley is the author of Current Sociology's most cited article
Our congratulations to Professor Steve Yearley, Director of the Genomics Forum, as his article Sociology and Climate Change after Kyoto published in Current Sociology in 2009, is named the most cited article in this journal of all articles published in 2009 and 2010.
The article focuses on the comparatively neglected role of the social sciences (including economics) and of assumptions about the social functioning of the scientific community in projections about climate change and about societies' responses to changing climates and related environmental phenomena.
Sociology and Climate Change after Kyoto What Roles for Social Science in Understanding Climate Change? is now available to access free in perpetuity.
