The IPO is responsible for issuing regular digital newsletters that contain announcements of GLP community relevant activities (such as conferences and workshops), relevant vacancies and may also highlight publications.

The policy for highlighting publications follows the attribution of the work to GLP and the broader interest for the GLP community. Therefore, requests for highlighting a publication in the digital newsletter will only be awarded if the publication mentions, as part of the acknowledgements, that the publication contributes to GLP or ‘contributes to the GLP science plan’.

Furthermore, the publication should be either providing a synthesis of GLP relevant topics, describe a new relevant dataset relevant to land system science or be agenda setting. Therefore, regular research papers will not be highlighted in the GLP newsletter. They may be included in the regular news listings in the newsletter at the discretion of GLP staff.
