SESMO Compendium on “Fundamentals of Modelling, Principles and Good Practice”

A joint special issue on Good Modelling Practice is being shared with three journals: Environmental Modelling and Software, Ecological Modelling and Socio-Environmental Systems Modelling. Some details are on each of the journals’ websites and are in the attached in terms of scope – which can be very wide such as considering the whole modelling cycle, or methods or applications for any part of the cycle. Below are the Guest Editors, one from each of the journals. They will be across all submissions. There is some flexibility about the timing but Tony Jakeman would be very pleased to receive an abstract or even a suggestion of what you might cover in a submission so the proposed topic can be discussed.
