Call 2021 for scientists & artists

Oceans on the Rise

Submissions by scientists   |   Submissions by artists   |   Dear 2050: Oceans on the Rise


Welcome to our call for artists and scientists on Oceans and Climate Change. Here is how you can help make climate science accessible.

Write your reviews

With the first round of improvements of the manuscripts being completed on most manuscripts, our science editors are now seeking reviewers to write independent reviews of the manuscripts. A review is a feedback on a whole manuscript. We typically need two reviewers checking the accessibility of a manuscript for a broad audience, and two reviewers checking that the scientific content of a manuscript is based on existing peer reviewed scientific publications.

Your participation as an independent reviewer is essential to ensure that Climanosco research articles are both reliable and accessible. We count on you!
