An interactive panel discussion between the PAGES Early-Career Network (ECN), and the editorial team of PLOS Climate magazine about the challenges of the peer review process, focusing on the experiences from early-career researchers (ECRs) who are dealing with the exciting (but sometimes frustrating) process of publishing their first manuscripts. This online event aims to provide advice that can help ECRs “navigate” the sea of publications and create an interactive platform for sharing experiences.
