Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Stable isotopes have been extensively used in atmospheric chemistry to identify the sources of atmospheric pollutants and atmospheric chemical processes. These include nitrogen isotope of NOx, nitrate, ammonium and organic nitrogen, sulfur isotope of SOx, H2S, DMS and sulfate, carbon isotope of organic carbon, black carbon and carbonate, oxygen isotope of nitrate, sulfate and H2O, etc., which exist in aerosols, rainwater or gas. Mass-independent isotope compositions (e.g., Δ17O, D34S, and D33S) are also good tools to understand atmospheric chemistry. Due to the importance of stable isotopes as a research tool in the field of atmospheric chemistry, this Special Issue in Atmosphere will seek high-quality research articles focused on “Stable Isotopes in Atmospheric Chemistry”. Topics can include field observations, paleoclimate (ice cores and paleosols), modeling studies, statistical techniques, isotope fraction theory, analytical and collection techniques, machine learning, and database innovations.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Atmosphere is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
