Jeff Dean, Executive Editor for Physical Sciences and Technology

startquoteI seek manuscripts in the physical sciences, engineering, and technology, with particular emphasis on topics that intersect with domains in the social sciences and the humanities, such as public policy, law, ethics, psychology, philosophy, and science and technology studies. In the physical sciences, I am interested in those areas most affected by, and affecting, planetary change and related human activity, including atmospheric science, Earth and environmental science, ocean science, hydrology, climate science, and geology. I also pursue both cutting-edge and synthetic work in physics, astronomy, and cosmology. In engineering, I would like to see book-length work on energy, materials, manufacturing, planning, transportation, buildings, water, and communications, with a special emphasis on sustainable engineering. In technology, I am looking for manuscripts addressing robotics and artificial intelligence, computing, nanotechnologies, virtual and augmented reality, human enhancement, and autonomous, networked, mobile, or embedded technologies. I especially welcome scholarship addressing fundamental issues with far-reaching theoretical or practical implications, and with a distinctive point of view. I work closely with authors to develop both scholarly and trade books.endquote
