Association of Polar Early Career Scientists


During the last year, APECS has organised a group review of the next IPCC special report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate, in which 75 Early Career Scientists were involved. This process was very instructive and we were able to compile more than 2000 comments that were submitted to the IPCC at the end of June. In light of this project, we believe that Early Career Scientists should have a greater role in the scientific review process, given that presently, Early Career Scientists account for only 6% of all reviewers.

A correspondence has now been published about this process in Nature.
