Checklists and Templates

AGU provides a number of checklists and templates to help facilitate new submissions and revisions. Authors can also submit their papers directly using cloud-based authoring tools Overleaf and Authorea.  If you use any of these templates, the metadata from the paper will be automatically loaded into our submission system when you upload the manuscript file.
