This short course aims at providing the community (in particular Early Career Scientists) with a better understanding of open access and open review processes in Solid Earth and Earth Surface Dynamics, two open access journals of the European Geoscience Union. The importance of publishing in open access is constantly increasing, and even mandatory for many research-funding agencies. The EGU open access journals have gone a step further and have also a fully transparent open review process. Such a review process allows for an interactive and scientific public discussion, helping the authors to improve their works. In this short course, attendees will get useful background information and tips about publishing in Solid Earth and Earth Science Dynamics. Two of the managing editors, Fabrizio Storti and Tom Coulthard, will provide invited talks and will be available for a discussion and exchange ideas about publishing in EGU journals, together with two ECS that have recently published there.
