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
With the start of the virtual EGU General Assembly 2021 less than three weeks away, the March newsletter is filled with the information you need to register, create an accessible (and effective) vPICO presentation, and understand the vEGU21 time-block schedule. You can also take a first look around the new conference platform, which promises a much more complete experience than EGU was able to offer last year.
The Loupe also highlights practical information applicable to vEGU21 and beyond, including how to get the most out of online conferences; how to balance the schedule and your commitments with caring responsibilities; and how to take advantage of display uploads and commenting to continue interacting with colleagues beyond the meeting’s two week-duration.
In addition to the latest Journal Watch and GeoRoundup of this month’s EGU journal highlights, this issue also looks at two current policy-related topics: the pressure that democracy is under from the influence of social media, and how you can achieve policy impact.
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).
