The inaugural EGU webinar: EGU journals and Open Access publishing

Last week the EGU executive office debuted something new for our members: the EGU webinar. The first of these focused on the open access journals that EGU publishes in partnership with Copernicus.The webinar discussed the interactive public peer review system, the role of the EGU Publications Committee, how researchers can effectively publish in an EGU Journal and the new EGUsphere.


The webinar featured three speakers, including Alberto Montanari, the current EGU President and Professor of Water Engineering and Hydrology at the University of Bologna; Katja Fennel, the Chair of the EGU Publications Committee and Professor of Oceanography at Dalhousie University; and Martin Rasmussen, the Managing Director of Copernicus. The session was moderated by Chloe Hill.
