About Climate

Aims and Scope

Climate (ISSN 2225-1154) is an independent, international and multi-disciplinary open access journal focusing on climate processes of the earth, covering all scales and involving modelling and observation methods. Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical results as quick as possible and as much detail as possible. There is no restriction on the length of the papers. Full experimental and methodical details must be provided so that the results can be reproduced.

The scope of Climate includes:
