The IGAC newsletter both engages and informs the international atmospheric chemistry community of IGAC Activities through Editorials, Workshop Summaries, Activity Updates, and Scientific Features. In addition, each issue of the IGAC Newsletter has a Young Scientist Spotlight that profiles an individual in graduate school or within 5 years of completing his/her doctorate. The Open Submission section allows non-IGAC Activities related to atmospheric chemistry to publish Workshop Summaries, Activity Updates, Scientific Features, and Editorials (see below). The IGAC Newsletter is typically published three times per year (January, May, and September).
Open Submission Guidelines
Editorials, Workshop Summaries, and Activity Updates should be approximately 600 words with a maximum of one figure. Scientific Features should be approximately 1500 words with one to two figures. Figures must be high-resolution .png files. The next deadline for submission to the January 2014 IGAC Newsletter is 30 November 2013. Please send submissions to email@example.com.

The 51st issue of the IGAC newsletter offers a synthesis of current initiatives and events within the field of atmospheric chemistry. Among its highlights are special features, workshop and conference summaries, and information on the present direction of the field.
Please help us improve the newsletter by taking a brief, seven-question survey to refine its role, aim, scope, structure and usability.
