URSI is launching a flagship open access journal Radio Science Letters (extending the historical Radio Science journal and trying to leverage on the solid URSI reputation in contrast to many other open access journals that are not supported by a scientific community and whose reviews are often perceived as low quality). Gabriele Gradoni will be an Associate Editor of the Letters (URSI Radio Science Journal), helping the EiC Prof. George Uslenghi (University of Chicago). The Letters are published by Wiley for the American Geophysical Union.
