PAGES 9th webinar: "Ethics in publishing and combatting predatory practices in science"
07 September 2023

The 9th PAGES webinar on "Ethics in publishing and combatting predatory practices in science", with Dr. Ramón Feenstra (Universitat Jaume I de Castelló, Spain) and Dr. Asfawossen Asrat Kassaye (Botswana International University of Science and Technology, Botswana) as speakers took place on 7 September 2023.

Ramón discussed the topic of ethics and open-access publishing, emphasizing the complexity of the subject and the importance of caution and rigor in the publishing process. He highlighted the characteristics of predatory journals and suggested using resources like predatory reports and 'think, check, submit' to verify the legitimacy of journals. Ramón also discussed the two different ways of moral reasoning for publishing and the importance of reputation and credibility in academic research. Asfawossen shared a study conducted by the inter academic partnership examining predatory practices in academic journals and conferences, highlighting the vulnerability of researchers in arts and humanities and the need for a spectrum approach to assess publication quality. He emphasized the importance of researchers being aware of predatory journals and conferences to safeguard their work and reputation.

PAGES 7th webinar: "Using simulation results from the Palaeoclimate Model Intercomparison Project"
8 December 2021
Many different modelling groups from around the world have performed past climate simulations for several time periods.
A substantial quantity of output from these simulations is freely available for download through the machinery of the Earth System Grid Federation. Small subsets of this data are available elsewhere, such as from the IPCC's Interactive Atlas.

This seminar aimed to help people find and use those data from the PMIP simulations that would be useful for their own research. It will introduce which climate models and periods have been used in PMIP, how to find out what data is available and where, how to download that data and its format, and then highlight some code and tools available to help process that data.

PAGES 6th webinar: "PAGES-WCRP webinar - WCRP's new science directions"
2 December 2021
Over the past two years WCRP went through a fundamental reorganization of its science and the required organizational structure required to address future needs of climate research and to produce answers that society need to address climate change problems. The talk will introduce the new WCRP, its new science foci and its new elements and will highlight interfaces across which enhanced interactions and collaborations with PAGES can flourish in the future.

PAGES 5th webinar: "Risk-KAN"
15 April 2021
PAGES' 5th webinar, with the Knowledge-Action Network on Extreme Events and Emergent Risks (Risk-KAN) was held on 15 April 2021. "Mutual interests, potential synergies, and an invitation to get involved"
The Risk-KAN, a joint initiative of the Future Earth, IRDR, WCRP and WWRP programs, provides an open platform for scientific communities from across science disciplines and engineering working on extreme events, disaster risk reduction and governance to exchange information, knowledge and data and engage in collaborative research activities.

PAGES 2nd webinar: "Promoting FAIR principles at NOAA’s WDS-Paleo"
27 May 2020
The primary mission of NOAA's World Data Service for Paleoclimatology (WDS-Paleo) is to ensure that global paleoclimatology proxy and derived reconstruction data are maintained in a permanent archive that is easily and openly accessible to the world science community and to other users. New initiatives of the WDS-Paleo, including bulk data download and the Paleoenvironmental Standard Terms (PaST) Thesaurus of measured variables, help to make these data FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable, re-usable). Join us for this briefing from Carrie Morrill to learn how to use these new capabilities, both to meet new WDS-Paleo data contribution requirements and to access data more efficiently and effectively.
