Preprints – What’s the worst that could happen?

Early career scientists are laying the building blocks of their career. Giving away your best ideas for free and everyone to read can seem risky. Pre-prints, on the surface, may look just like that, but are they? Pre-print servers like EarthArXiv are sprouting in many scientific disciplines. They proclaim the benefits of research being cited […]

It was only later when it came to the application in actual geophysical problems that tensors, linear algebra, and differential equations clicked. Personally, I don’t recommend this, as it makes life unnecessarily hard. Machine […]
