New Climate Report Calls for an Action Network

AGU, especially through the Thriving Earth Exchange, has been reaching out to communities of all sizes and learning more about what they want to do with respect to climate change. What we hear again and again is a willingness, even an eagerness, to prepare for the effects. Community leaders tell us, however, that they aren’t sure exactly where to start or how they can integrate adaptation and mitigation plans into …

AGU Publications, Continuing to Lead

Over the past several years, AGU has continually evolved its publishing program for both journals and books. Some of the evolution has been incremental, such as adding commentaries and social media sites for certain journals, some has been more consequential, such a instituting a 24-month rolling embargo for all journal  content published after 1997, and some has been in response to changes in science, such as the launch of two …

Protecting Academic Freedom and Holding Ourselves Accountable

Update (3 March 2015): In the last few days we have received several comments regarding the situation with the Natural Resources Committee, and as such, I want to expand a bit on what I previously wrote here. AGU unwaveringly supports a scientist’s right to academic freedom, and nothing in my previous post should be interpreted to suggest otherwise. We view the singling out of any individual or group of scientists …

The Changing Face of Publishing at AGU

A recent Eos article discussed how AGU’s data policy for publications is going to foster an even better understanding and increase the lasting impact of our Earth and space science research. In reading it, I was struck about how much of an impact the changes we are making in our publishing work enhance on our ability to “promote discovery in Earth and space science.” (If you missed the article from …
