Open Science

Open science is a global effort to increase participation in science and access to scientific research for people and communities everywhere. With equity at the forefront, AGU is committed to making your research results and science-based solutions more open and accessible.

Open Access
AGU has made it easier than ever for all scientists to publish and reach the widest possible audience, with open access options in all AGU journals. AGU’s equitable approach to publishing fees means all accepted papers get published, regardless of the author’s ability to pay. Learn more about publishing open access with AGU.

FAIR Data and Software
AGU requires that underlying data and software needed to understand, evaluate, and build upon the reported research be available at the time of peer review and publication. For more information and guidance, visit the Data and Software for Authors page.
