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) and IPCC AR6 WGII First Order Draft (FOD). The reviews were conducted in 2019 and from the over 200 participants, >60 YESS members took part in the review.

We currently in the process of reviewing the IPCC AR6 WGI Second Order Draft (SOD WGI).

In case we look for new reviewers it will be announced on this page.

We encourage researchers from various career stages to participate, including advanced Master students, PhD students, postdoctoral researchers and early career faculty members.

This round of reviews for SOD WGII will take place from from the beginning of March to the beginning of April 2020. 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.
