The EGU newsletter is a short email publication sent to EGU members on a monthly basis. It informs the Union membership about EGU events and activities, from highlighting papers published in our open access journals to providing news relating to EGU’s scientific divisions and meetings, including the General Assembly.
EGU members are given the option to subscribe to receive the Union’s email newsletter when buying their EGU membership. Other geoscientists, members of the wider public or the media can subscribe online.
If you are an EGU member subscribed to receive the newsletter (you can check this in your User Area) but have not received the emails, please let us know, and make sure to add firstname.lastname@example.org to your address book to prevent spam filters from blocking these emails.
Current issue of the EGU newsletter
This month the EGU President Alberto Montanari wrote an open letter to funding agencies with information on the assessment of presentations given at EGU scientific meetings. The letter emphasises that there is no distinction regarding the standing, quality or prestige of oral, poster, or PICO presentations at the EGU General Assembly and recommends that funding agencies do not use presentation type as a criterion for assessing the scientific value of contributions.
In other important news this month, the EGU has launched Weather and Climate Dynamics, a new open-access, two-stage journal with open review dedicated to the publication and public discussion of high-quality research on dynamical processes in the atmosphere. The journal is now open for submissions.
Next month brings two important EGU deadlines. The call for candidates for EGU Union President, General Secretary and Division Presidents is open until 15 September: we encourage EGU members to nominate themselves or propose a candidate. Before that, 5 September is the deadline to submit session proposals and short course ideas to the EGU General Assembly 2020. Contribute to the conference programme by submitting your proposals.
Readers can access all previous issues of the newsletter from the archive below. Up until the end of 2014, the newsletter was a quarterly magazine and information service (first called The Eggs and then GeoQ).
