AGU Publications is updating our manuscript style, much of which is based on APA formatting. Read about it here The updated style will be applied to manuscripts during the typesetting process on those received by the typesetters after September 1. We ask that manuscripts prepared after September 1 adopt the new style though we aren’t requiring it for manuscripts already in AGU’s previous style.

Add your ORCID to GEMS and always have this identifier link you and all of your work. AGU encourages all authors and reviewers to create and add an Open Researcher and Contributor Identifier (ORCID) to their account. It’s easy: just update your profile on an existing account or add ORCID when you create your account. Learn more about ORCID.

ORCIDS will now be required for all corresponding authors and strongly encouraged for coauthors.
AGU officially joins with a number of other publishers in a commitment to include the ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) for authors of all papers published. See statement https://eos.org/agu-news/agu-opens-its-journals-to-author-identifiers

All AGU journal content published from 1997 to 24 months ago is freely accessible online. Content published in AGU's open access journals, including GeoHealth, JAMES, Earth's Future, and Earth and Space Science become fully open immediately upon publication.
