Capturing a broad spectrum of interest and experience will help EarthArXiv consider and include the full geoscience community. An essential step to achieving this objective is to ensure broad and intersectional diversity in staffing our Advisory Council.

As EarthArXiv came to fruition roughly 125 individuals volunteered to help out. We are grateful for such overwhelming support. Our initial Advisory Council was selected from this set of 125 volunteers with the above objectives in mind and these individuals will serve a 2-year term. We also encourage you to read our Diversity Statement.

EarthArXiv utilizes the Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting (OAI-PMH ) to publish our preprint holdings. The OAI-PMH feed is available in JATS or Dublin Core format at the following location: Indexers who are interested in EarthArXiv preprints can use the feed to receive updated metadata about new and modified preprints, including direct links to the PDF and supplementary files.

EarthArxiv is proud to partner with the Public Library of Science (PLOS) to enable authors submitting to PLOS Climate, PLOS Sustainability and Transformation, and PLOS Water to post preprints with ease. Submitting authors will have the option to automatically forward their manuscript to the EarthArXiv preprint server, directly from these three journal submission systems.

The EarthArXiv community is also supported by the Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP)
