WELCOME to JOIN

We cordially invite you and your colleagues to participate in SWS abstracts and manuscripts peer review process. Research scientists who are highly qualified in one or in more conference sections in the main areas Earth and Planetary Sciences or Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts and have proven scientific publication record, are welcome to join the SWS Reviewer Committee.
