Celebration: 10 years of interactive open access publishing at EGU GA 2011

It’s been ten years since the launch of the first interactive open access journal Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics, followed by a growing number of EGU open access journals covering most fields of geoscience.

A combination of traditional peer review and interactive and public discussion on the internet assures efficient scientific exchange and top quality. High submission rates and impact factors confirm the high value and visibility of the publications, which continue to grow rapidly.

To celebrate the success and achievements of the EGU open access journals, the EGU publications committee and journal editors would like to invite you all to have a drink at the reception tonight!

The reception will be held Tuesday 5 Apr, 19:00, Foyer E (Yellow Level – Ground Floor).

Further information about (interactive) open access publishing at EGU can be found online.
