A new issue (issue 34) of EGGS was published recently, its available on the EGGS website.
The latest edition of NHESS (Natural Hazards and Earth System Sciences) features a post-face by Münch et al. summarising the special issue which has 22 peer-reviewed papers concerning the GITEWS (German Indonesian Tsunami Early Warning System) project.
Münch et al. (2011) state how the idea for the special issue of NHESS was formulated at the EGU General Assembly in 2009. The papers cover all aspects of the GITEWS project including the project framework, seismology, ocean instrumentation, GPS, the warning centre, modelling, capacity building, and system integration.

On the EGU news page of the EGSS, the newsletter of EGU, there’s a story about the success of Biogeosciences, one of EGU’s Open Access Journals. The Thomson Journal Citation Reports for 2009 gave Biogeosciences an Impact Factor of 3.246 and an Article Impact Score of 1.538, with over one meaning a journal article has above average influence.
There are currently 16 open access peer-reviewed journals, each with their own homepage which can be found on the publications page.
On Fridays, articles from the journals will be highlighted along with research presented at the EGU General Assembly 2011.
