Launch of a new type of manuscript, "Rapid communications", as part of Climate of the Past 20th anniversary celebrations

11 June 2024

The 20th anniversary of Climate of the Past represents a significant achievement, highlighting the substantial interest of the paleo community in this EGU journal. This notable milestone in the history of Climate of the Past deserves recognition within the journal itself. Consequently, we are pleased to announce the launch of "Rapid communications". "Rapid communications" is a new peer-reviewed manuscript type that reports significant advances or discusses matters of policy and perspectives related to the science of the journal, and it features a faster review process. We hope that the paleo community will find this new manuscript type engaging and seize this new opportunity for rapid publication.
