Junior Involvement and Interaction with Experts

Hello everybody,

I hope you are all having a great start to 2024. I can’t believe that January is already over!

In this message, I would like to reach out to our students and junior professionals. The RECORDER team is keen to involve the CSEG’s junior members, and would like their contributions to our magazine. Specifically, they are welcome to contribute in the following ways:

  • Technical articles: Of course, we would very much like original work from graduate students or junior professionals, such as short articles about some aspect of their thesis. If the students have strong essays that are more like literature surveys, we would be happy to publish those, as well. Tutorial-style articles, that cover the basics of geophysics, are also welcome.
  • Questions for experts: We have a new column in the RECORDER, named “Ask the Experts”. If any of you have queries that have been bugging you for a while, please send us an email. We will hunt down the experts that are capable of addressing your questions. Their detailed answers will be published in the RECORDER, for the benefit of all our readers.
  • Student spotlight: We wish to run mini-interviews with students, highlighting their background, hobbies and interests. In this regard, I’m seeking the help of those involved in the CSEG Mentorship Program. If any mentors think that their mentee is a good candidate, please feel free to contact us, and we will arrange an interview.
  • Reports on conferences: We routinely publish short reports on various conferences that are held worldwide. Our editorial team very much appreciates when these reports are authored by students.

The RECORDER has a fairly large viewership worldwide, and especially in the Calgary oil and gas industry. Since we began publishing it online, the viewership has expanded far beyond Calgary. Publishing an article in the RECORDER will provide significant visibility for students and junior professionals.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at
