Open science and diversity in academia
The path to new research hinges on accessibility and sharing of ideas across the science community
This month, EGU launched the new preprints feature of EGUsphere, to stimulate discussion and encourage sharing of feedback for authors planning paper publication. This is in line with EGU’s continued efforts to support open access research and transparent science communication.
New insights and ideas are also formed when women and people beyond the gender binary are given equal opportunity to shine. This month, EGU’s Media and Communications Officer Gillian D’Souza heard about the personal breakthroughs and challenges during their science journeys of five women who recently started volunteering for EGU. February also gave us the chance to meet Alicia Fantasia, researcher in ancient Earth climates, who studies the response of the Earth system to past hyperthermal events. “Past episodes of global warming represent a fundamental opportunity for geologists to extract tangible constraints on the interactions between climate and biogeochemical cycles and understand how the system can return to pre-crisis conditions,” she explains in conversation with EGU Committee Programmes Co-ordinator Simon Clark.
