Since April 2018, the APECS-IPCC working group has taken part in two rounds of review of the Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate (SROCC). More than one hundred international early career reviewers have participated – by participating, reviewers not only get recognized as early career experts, but also gain valuable training and insight in the scientific review process for reports written for policy makers.
We have successfully completed the ECR Group review for the IPCC AR6 WGI First Order Draft (FOD). The review was conducted in the first half year of 2019 and from the over 100 participants, 32 YESS members took part in the review.
We are currently reviewing IPCC AR6 WGII First Order Draft (FOD).
We are now looking for reviewers for the second round of review of the IPCC AR6 WGI report (SOD WGI).
We encourage researchers from various career stages to participate, including advanced Master students, PhD students, postdoctoral researchers and early career faculty members. If you do not fit in these categories and are interested in applying, please email us with a short explanation so we can determine eligibility. If you want to participate in this group review, please fill in this form no later than January 8th, 2020 (23:59 GMT). We will assess all the applications and select participants based on Motivation and Research experience. Moreover, we will try to balance the selection of applicants further based on gender, career stage and geographical location. Accepted participants will be contacted in the beginning of February 2020.
This round of reviews will take place from from the beginning of March to the beginning of April 2020. Please ensure that you have the necessary amount of time available during this period. Previous reviewers spent on average 40 hours on the process including training and reviewing period. You need to be familiar with the recent literature in your field and will be asked to review a minimum of 10 to 20 pages of the report (If you want to review the entire report, IPCC offer opportunities on their side). These are not anonymous reviews – you will be individually credited for your contribution, and your comments will be public record. Further information about the review process will be shared with selected participants.
