APECS Call for Reviewers for IPCC special report on Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate

The next Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) special report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate will be published in September 2019 and APECS will be participating in the review process by coordinating an early career expert review group. We are therefore looking for early career researchers to help review sections of the report. Participation recognizes you not only as an early career expert, but is also an exciting opportunity to gain valuable insight and training in how the scientific review process of such a report is conducted.

We encourage members from various career stages to participate, from advanced Master students, PhD students, postdoctoral researchers to early career faculty members! (If you do not fit in these categories and are interested in applying, please [hidden email] with a short explanation so we can determine eligibility.) Participants will be teamed up by area of expertise, and we will make sure that we partner those of you who have some experience with reviewing already with those who have never done this before.

If you want to participate, please fill out this online form, by no later than 15 January 2018 at 18:00 GMT. Accepted participants will be assigned to a chapter and contacted by the end of February.

The first round of reviews will take place from May through June of 2018, so applicants should make sure they have the necessary amount of time available during this period. You need to be intimately familiar with the recent literature in your field and will need to review roughly 10 pages of the special report. These are not anonymous reviews, so this means you will be individually credited for your contribution, and your comments will be made a part of the public record. All participants will be required to participate in an online training session provided during March and April 2018.

For further details on the general review process for the report go to: https://www.ipcc.ch/report/srocc/ . If you have any questions about this opportunity, please contact [hidden email]
