Dear cryolist,

The first order draft (FOD) of the Working Group I (WGI) 6th Assessment 
Report (AR6) by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) 
is due to be published around 2021.*APECS, PYRN and YESS, WCPA, and 
PAGES ECN are coordinating the next review by early career experts that 
will take place between April and June 2019.*

Since April 2018, the APECS-IPCC working group has taken part in two 
rounds of review of the Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a 
Changing Climate (SROCC). More than one hundred international early 
career reviewers have participated - by participating, reviewers not 
only get recognized as early career experts, but also gain valuable 
training and insight in the scientific review process for reports 
written for policy makers.

*APECS*aims to produce a group review in collaboration with other early 
career associations such aPermafrost Young Research Network (PYRN) 
<https://pyrn.arcticportal.org/>,Young Earth System Scientists (YESS) 
community <https://www.yess-community.org/>,Young Professionals Network 
of the World Commission on Protected Areas (WCPA) 
andPast Global Changes (PAGES) Early Career Network (ECN 
for AR6.

*We are now looking for reviewers for the first round of review of the 
IPCC AR6 WGI report.*We encourage researchers from various career stages 
to participate, including advanced Master students, PhD students, 
postdoctoral researchers and early career faculty members. If you do not 
fit in these categories and are interested in applying, please email us 
with a short explanation so we can determine eligibility. If you want to 
participate, please fill outthis online form 
<https://goo.gl/forms/EonWzeb8yTwPZTxG3>,*by no later than March 1, 2019 
(23:59 GMT)*. We will assess all the applications and select 
participants based on Motivation and Research experience. Moreover, we 
will try to balance the selection of applicants further based on gender, 
career stage and geographical location. Accepted participants will be 
assigned to a chapter and contacted by the end of March 2019.

This round of reviews will take place from*May 1st*to*June 15 of 2019*. 
Please ensure that you have the necessary amount of time available 
during this period. Previous reviewers spent in average 40h hours on the

minimum of 10 to 20 pages of the report*(If you want to review the
