New climate physics editors sought for Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics

13 June 2023

ACP is seeking editors to join its editorial board to help expand the coverage of topics in the broad area of climate physics.

The journal aims to appoint 5–10 new editors in the following priority areas: global climate, climate physics, radiative forcing, climate sensitivity, feedbacks, radiation, climate engineering / modification, cloud physics and convection, precipitation, atmospheric circulation and variability, ocean and cryosphere interactions.

ACP is a not-for-profit European Geosciences Union journal published by Copernicus Publications. The journal publishes around 1000 papers per year covering all of atmospheric chemistry and physics, including aerosols, gases, clouds, precipitation, dynamics, radiation, and their role in the Earth's climate system (including the biosphere, hydrosphere, and cryosphere). ACP was founded in 2001 as the first fully open-access journal pioneering an interactive open-access publishing model with public discussion of submitted papers.

The journal currently has about 150 editors from 25 countries led by an executive committee (Executive Editors Barbara Ervens and Ken Carslaw) and 8 senior subject-area coordinators.

Editors are responsible for assuring high scientific standards by conducting an efficient and fair manuscript review process from the appointment of reviewers through to making the final decision on acceptance for publication. Editors, who will be reputable scientists in their field, are expected to exercise the highest levels of scientific integrity and ethics and to support ACP's interactive public peer review process. A key role for the new editors will be to attract submissions to the journal through their reputation as an expert in climate physics. The full Guidelines for Editors are available at:

If you are interested in becoming an ACP editor in the area of climate physics, please submit a short statement of motivation and suitability by 31 July 2023 at:

The selection process will consider scientific and community track record, expertise in one or more of the topics listed above, and commitment to ACP's open peer review model.
