___________________________________________________________________________________________________________

The following special issues in international scientific journals were initiated from members of the SPP 1409 `Science and the Public`. They record the topics that were central to the research within SPP 1409, and they document the research results of the individual projects funded within the SPP. They also document the vast international cooperation – many of the articles within these special issues were co-authored with international partners, and past speakers of workshops organized by the SPP 1409.
