The International Nitrogen Assessment


The International Nitrogen Assessment (INA) report is currently under preparation. The INA summarizes the key findings from the International Nitrogen Management System project. It is a high-profile synthesis of knowledge and emerging findings on nitrogen. The book is made up of 29 chapters that are organized into 5 parts:

  1. The global nitrogen challenge: Problem definition
  2. Foundations for assessing the nitrogen cycle
  3. Global integrated assessment across the nitrogen cycle
  4. Nitrogen challenges and opportunities for key world regions
  5. Grasping the future challenge

The INA will be published by Cambridge University Press in 2023.


Call for Peer Reviewers

The INA chapters are now nearing completion, and we are entering the peer review stage. We want to ensure that the INA chapters are high quality, comprehensive, clear, scientifically sound, and robust. To that end, we are seeking a diverse range of peer reviewers with nitrogen expertise. This is where you come in! 


Peer review overview and process

We are looking for volunteers to review specific chapters of the INA. We suggest selecting no more than 3 chapters. We will ask peer reviewers to read the selected chapter(s) and answer a set of questions that address the quality and completeness of the chapters. We will ask peer reviewers to return chapters with feedback within 1 month. Please note that the chapters are in draft form, and we ask that reviewers keep the chapters and the associated data and content fully confidential.
