Catching Up with Journal Editors at EMS 2018

The EMS Annual Conference 2018 was held in Hungary in early September. As an exhibitor, we had the chance to meet Section Editor-in-Chief Prof. Dr. Andreas Matzarakis, Editorial Board Member Dr. Yafei Wang, Guest Editor Dr. Branislava Lalic, Guest Editor Dr. María Jesús Esteban Parra, and many other experts in the field. We appreciate their inputs for developing the journal.

Atmosphere Reaches 1’000 Papers Milestone

During this quarter, the total number of the papers published in Atmosphere has exceeded 1’000. It is one more stepping stone and serves as encouragement to the editorial team to continue on this path. With a median article publication time of 53 days in 2018 so far, Atmosphere allows researchers to make their work known to the public in a timely fashion.
