Become a book reviewer for the EGU newsletter!

Interested in free books and getting published? The EGU has an opportunity for you.

The Union’s newsletter, currently known as The Eggs, is a magazine and information service distributed for free to all Union members — around 12,000 scientists. It will be rebranded and relaunched in late February or early March with a new layout, content structure, and name: GeoQ. While the new version will see some changes (stay tuned!), it will keep much of the informative material of its predecessor, including book reviews.

We are currently looking for young scientists or established researchers in the geosciences and the planetary and space sciences to review books for GeoQ. Reviewers will receive the books free of charge and their work will be published in the newsletter accompanied by their name and short biography. It’s an ideal opportunity for scientists with a flair for science writing interested in seeing their texts published in a newsletter with a wide readership.

Contact GeoQ’s Chief Editor, Bárbara T. Ferreira, at if you are interested in reviewing book for the newsletter, or if you have any questions. Please also inform Bárbara about your areas of expertise (check the list of EGU Divisions for reference).

GeoQ, the new EGU newsletter. Coming soon!
