New editors sought for Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics

30 November 2023

Atmospheric Chemistry and Physics (ACP) is seeking editors to strengthen its editorial board in all journal subject areas: aerosols, gases, clouds, precipitation, dynamics, and radiation, as well as their role in the Earth's climate system, including the biosphere, hydrosphere, and cryosphere.

The journal aims to appoint 15–20 new editors. Priority topics include atmosphere–biosphere interactions, aerosol modeling, air quality modeling, transport modeling, tropospheric ozone, remote sensing of greenhouse gases and aerosol, small-scale and mesoscale meteorology, urban air pollution, chemical mechanisms, gas-phase radical chemistry, and organic multiphase chemistry.

ACP is a not-for-profit European Geosciences Union (EGU) journal published by Copernicus Publications. Editors work on a voluntary basis. The journal publishes around 800 papers per year covering all of atmospheric chemistry and physics. ACP was founded in 2001 as the first fully open-access journal, pioneering an interactive public discussion of submitted papers.

The journal currently has about 160 editors from nearly 30 countries led by an executive committee (Executive Editors Barbara Ervens and Ken Carslaw) and eight 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. The full guidelines for editors are available at:
