Solar Physics – Solicitation of Proposals for Topical Collections
The journal Solar Physics publishes one or two Topical Collections (TCs) per year dedicated to a focused topic, frequently with a small number of survey articles introducing regular unsolicited articles, all of which benefit from appearing in a collection. Not infrequently, these stem from a monothematic conference or conferences, but all articles submitted for consideration for a TC are handled and refereed in the same way as regular research articles, and submissions not associated with the conference are solicited. Recent TCs include Combined Radio and Space-based Solar Observations: From Techniques to New Results (Guest Editors: Eduard Kontar and Alexander Nindos) and Earth-affecting Solar Transients (Guest Editors: Jie Zhang, Xochitl Blanco-Cano, Nariaki Nitta, and Nandita Srivastava)
To aid in our planning, we solicit statements of interest from potential Guest Editors of Topical Collections by 01 March 2018.
