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 email@example.com to your address book to prevent spam filters from blocking these emails.
Current issue of the EGU newsletter
In the May newsletter, EGU spoke to researchers about the exclusionary practices contributing to the low retention rate of minority groups within the geosciences, and to understand what needs to be done to usher in change.
We hear about the geological period that no one talks about: menstruation in the field, and the struggles of being a parent or caregiver in academia. David Fernández-Blanco also shares his plans to better support early career researchers as EGU’s new Union-level Early Career Scientist Representative.
Members of EGU’s Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Committee invite your inputs to their survey on workplace experiences of geoscientists and EGU’s Education Committee shares ways to bring science to educators!

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).
