EGU’s first webinar: EGU journals—open access publishing, public peer review and the new EGUsphere

13 January 2020

At 12:30 pm on 21 January 2020, the European Geosciences Union (EGU) will be hosting its first-ever webinar, which will focus on the union’s open access journals.

In partnership with Copernicus Publications, the EGU publishes 19 peer-reviewed journals that span the Earth, planetary and space sciences. Not only are these EGU journals open access, but they also provide a discussion forum that allows an open review, open discussion and transparent evaluation.

The webinar will explain this interactive, public peer-review system; the role of the EGU’s Publication Committee; how to publish your research in an EGU Journal; and briefly outline the new EGUsphere. The Webinar will last approximately 30 minutes, with an additional 15 minutes for questions from participants.
Speakers will include:

  • Alberto Montanari, EGU President and Professor of Water Engineering and Hydrology at the University of Bologna
  • Katja Fennel, Chair of the EGU Publications Committee and Professor of Oceanography at Dalhousie University
  • Martin Rasmussen, Managing Director at Copernicus Publications
