About Keywords

Authors must choose keywords for their manuscript that are contained in a predefined taxonomy. During the manuscript submission process in Editorial Manager, this taxonomy is presented to the submitting author labeled as “classifications” to be applied to the manuscript. Authors must choose at least three classifications. The classifications are then presented as the article keywords when the page proofs are generated after acceptance and will appear in the final published article.

Suggestions for new keywords can be sent to PubsKeywords@ametsoc.org for consideration to be added when the taxonomy is periodically reviewed and updated.
