The Asia-Pacific Journal of Atmospheric Sciences (APJAS) is an international journal of the Korean Meteorological Society (KMS), published fully in English. It has started from 2008 by succeeding the KMS' former journal, the Journal of the Korean Meteorological Society (JKMS), which published a total of 47 volumes as of 2011, in its time-honored tradition since 1965. Since 2008, the APJAS is included in the journal list of Thomson Reuters’ SCIE (Science Citation Index Expanded) and also in SCOPUS, the Elsevier Bibliographic Database, indicating the increased awareness and quality of the journal.
The APJAS publishes original scientific research into all the fields of atmospheric science, with emphasis on but not limited to theoretical/observational/numerical studies on meteorological, climatological, and atmospheric environmental issues in the Asia-Pacific region. In addition to original articles, the APJAS publishes comprehensive reviews on topical subjects, and brief research notes and communications of preliminary results.
