Earthzine produces four themed issues per year; our quarterly themes are spearheaded by subject-matter experts who serve as guest editors. Monthly focus topics complement our in-depth Quarterly Theme coverage, with timely content that highlights developments and news within topical areas.

2018 Monthly Focus

Earthzine seeks contributions to our monthly focus topics. Monthly focus topics complement our in-depth Quarterly Theme coverage, with timely content that highlights developments and news within topical areas.

Articles included within our monthly focus topics are generally 500-1000 words in length and must have a clear alignment with the designated topic. They must be submitted no later than the first week of the month associated with that topic. Contributing to a monthly focus offers a chance for researchers and others working on relevant topics to share their work or observations with an interdisciplinary and global audience.  Our 2018 monthly focus topics and their descriptions are listed below.

If you are interested in contributing, please contact our Earthzine Editors at earthzineeditor@ieee.org. Further information and guidelines for submitting articles can be found here.
