Climatic Change is dedicated to the totality of the problem of climatic variability and change - its descriptions, causes, implications and interactions among these. The purpose of the journal is to provide a means of exchange among those working in different disciplines on problems related to climatic variations. This means that authors have an opportunity to communicate the essence of their studies to people in other climate-related disciplines and to interested non-disciplinarians, as well as to report on research in which the originality is in the combinations of (not necessarily original) work from several disciplines. The journal also includes vigorous editorial and book review sections.

  • Dedicated to the totality of the problem of climatic variability and change
  • Offers contributors the opportunity to communicate the essence of their studies to people in other climate-related disciplines
  • Includes a Letters section for short articles on new findings
  • 90% of authors who answered a survey reported that they would definitely publish or probably publish in the journal again

    The journal uses double-blind peer-review, in order to ensure equity and inclusion.
