GeoLog

Submit a post

GeoLog regularly brings readers information about recent research in the geosciences as well as updates on the EGU’s activities. Part of what makes GeoLog a great read is the variety that guest posts add to our regular features, and we welcome contributions from scientists, students and professionals in the Earth, planetary and space sciences.

What we’re looking for

Many guest posts feature in the Geosciences column, which highlights recent research in the Earth, planetary and space sciences. Posts can include, but are not limited to, reports from Earth science events, conferences and fieldwork, comments on the latest geoscientific developments and posts on recently published findings in peer-reviewed journals. Articles on research published in EGU journals and those that put geoscience in a broader context are particularly encouraged.

Guidelines

Audience

GeoLog posts are aimed at a broad scientific audience. Please bear this in mind when suggesting and writing your post. While the language used can be a bit more complex than that used in newspaper articles, care should be taken to avoid discipline-specific jargon and define it where it is used.

Length

Blog posts should ideally be anywhere between 500 and 2000 words long.

Images

Wherever possible, captions should be used for images. The author should be credited together with a link to the original source, if appropriate. Images should be open access and if not, permission must be obtained from the author before publishing.

References

The citation style should be similar to that used by Copernicus in EGU journals and the paper should be linked to, as in this example: “Lee, G., Jun, K.-S. and Chung, E.-S.: Integrated multi-criteria flood vulnerability approach using fuzzy TOPSIS and Delphi technique, Nat. Hazards Earth Syst. Sci., 13, 1293–1312, doi:10.5194/nhess-13-1293-2013, 2013″.
