Dear Climanosco community

New research articles are in the works, and it’s now your chance to help bring climate science into focus for everyone!

Scientists from around the world have contributed draft manuscripts exploring ‘Climate change and its impacts’ with an emphasis on health. We are thrilled with the collection of submissions which examine topics ranging from the impact of carbon dioxide on the nutritional content of our food to how rising temperatures coupled with societal factors are affecting women’s health in India.

Now begins the next step: enriching these manuscripts and ensuring they are understandable to a broad audience with feedback from our community.

We invite you to help make climate research reach a larger audience by:

  • Joining the preliminary discussions of the manuscripts online
    All members of Climanosco are invited to share their feedback on the first drafts of the manuscripts. All you have to do is log in and click here to view the drafts. You can comment on as many (or as few) of the texts as you like.
    The preliminary discussion has just started and will run until 22 July 2018.
  • Reviewing the accessibility or scientific content of one or two manuscripts
    We invite you to collaborate directly with authors, providing comprehensive feedback on individual manuscripts. Perspectives from people outside the field of climate science are essential in making research readily understandable to everyone. Members registered as scientists are invited to participate as science reviewers, ensuring the high scientific standard of manuscripts.
    Reviews will start early August and will run for two weeks. Click here to let us know that you’ll participate or learn more about it here.

We can’t wait to read your feedback on the new submissions!

As always, please feel free to get in touch if you have any questions.

Warm regards,
Michel and the Climanosco team
