Journal of Space Weather and Space Climate

The Journal of Space Weather and Space Climate (JSWC) is an international multi-disciplinary and interdisciplinary open access journal which publishes papers on all aspects of space weather and space climate including but not limited to

  • fundamental and applied scientific research including theory, observation, modeling and prediction
  • technical applications and engineering solutions
  • impact on humans and technology in space, in the air, at sea and on land
  • societal and economic implications
  • educational and dissemination concepts and experiences
  • development of user-targeted products and services
  • scientific, technical, political and commercial initiatives

JSWC accepts manuscripts related to space weather and space climate from a broad range of fields including solar physics, space plasma physics, aeronomy, planetology, radio science, geophysics, biology, medicine, astronautic, aeronautic and electrical engineering, meteorology, climatology, mathematics, economy and informatics. JSWC publishes regular research articles, short communications, invited reviews, technical and observational reports, strategic and educational articles and concise project reports. All manuscripts are peer reviewed. Accepted papers are published in electronic form only, taking advantage of the extensive opportunities offered by electronic media.
