The Journal of Applied Meteorology and Climatology (JAMC) publishes applied research on meteorology and climatology. Examples of meteorological research include topics such as weather modification, satellite meteorology, radar meteorology, boundary layer processes, physical meteorology, air pollution meteorology (including dispersion and chemical processes), agricultural and forest meteorology, mountain meteorology, and applied meteorological numerical models. Examples of climatological research include the use of climate information in impact assessments, dynamical and statistical downscaling, seasonal climate forecast applications and verification, climate risk and vulnerability, development of climate monitoring tools, and urban and local climates.
2016 Impact Factor: 2.365 (#26 in Meteorology and Atmospheric Science1)
Articles: Up to 7500 words or 26 double-spaced pages of text. (Abstract, references, figure and table lists, and figures do not count toward the length limit.)
Expedited Contributions: Up to 2500 words (abstract, references, figure and table lists, and figures do not count toward the length limit). No more than a combined total of 6 figures and tables. Multipart papers are not allowed. The peer-review and production/editing processes are accelerated. Author revisions are due within 4 weeks. The expected publication time is 4–7 weeks after final acceptance. If the paper grows beyond the maximum length or figure/table criteria during review and revision, the editor will decide if it remains an expedited contribution or becomes a regular article. Also, if the paper requires a second round of reviews, it will be considered a regular article.
Comment and Reply Exchange: Comments are written in response to a published article and should be submitted within 2 years of the publication date of the original article (although the editor can waive this limit in extenuating circumstances). The author of the original article has the opportunity to write a reply. These exchanges are published together.
