    Abstract

    The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has entered a new era, with insights from the social sciences now seen as critical to informing global policymaking decisions on the climate crisis. Previously, economists dominated the social science contribution through their proactive engagement with climate related intergovernmental bodies such as the IPCC. While this dominance has been criticised by academics from other disciplines, arguably they were somewhat complicit by their silence or assumptions that they would be sought out for input. It is worth noting that the IPCC does not commission research, but rather derives all its findings from existing scientific publications. However, the IPCC scientists need to know where to look for this work and for the content of these publications to be easily assimilated into their interdisciplinary deliberative processes.
