Aims and scope

Annales Geophysicae (ANGEO) is an international, multi- and inter-disciplinary scientific open-access journal in the field of solar–terrestrial physics. ANGEO publishes original articles and short communications (letters) in the sciences of the Sun–Earth system, including the science of space weather, the solar–terrestrial plasma physics, and the Earth's atmosphere, as specified in one or more of the following fields:

  • solar corona and heliosphere: physics and dynamics of the solar atmosphere, chromosphere and corona (including emissions, ejections and magnetic activity), interplanetary, heliospheric and solar wind physics;
  • magnetosphere and space plasma physics: plasma physics of the interaction between the solar wind and the Earth or with other magnetized or unmagnetized planetary environments; physics of the terrestrial and planetary magnetospheres, including in situ or remote-sensing active plasma experiments;
  • ionosphere and aeronomy: physics and aeronomy of the ionospheres and exospheres of the Earth and planets, including auroral activity, middle-, low-latitude, and equatorial ionosphere, geomagnetism and magnetic activity;
  • middle and upper atmosphere: physics, dynamics, chemistry, and aeronomy of the middle and upper atmosphere of the Earth;
  • lower atmosphere and climate: physical and chemical processes of the troposphere; atmospheric boundary layer and surface processes; meteorology and climate variation.

Annales Geophysicae is published monthly and offers the following:

Regular issues

  • free online access for readers, moderate article processing charges for authors;
  • all papers peer-reviewed by two referees to international standards;
  • no limit on page numbers other than that the length should be appropriate to the significance;
  • no extra charges for colour figures.

AnGeo Communicates

  • aims to provide a medium for short reports (up to four published pages) of new significant results;
  • rapid publication ensured by only one referee review;
  • free online access for readers, moderate article processing charges for authors.

Special issues and special topics:

  • can be organized on relevant topics of particular interest;
  • article length limit of 12 pages;
  • free online access for readers, moderate article processing charges for authors;
  • no extra charges for colour figures;
  • efforts to ensure publication as quickly as possible (9–10 months usually, down to 6 months for very special cases).
