Solicitation of Ideas for Topical Issues of Solar Physics

© SpringerThe journal Solar Physics publishes one or two Topical Issues (TIs) 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 together. Not infrequently, these stem from a monothematic conference or conferences, but all articles submitted for consideration for a TI are handled and refereed in the same way as regular research papers, and submissions not associated with the conference are solicited. Recent TIs include "Solar and Stellar Flares: Observations, Simulations, and Synergies" (December 2015) and "Probing the Sun Inside and Out" (November 2015). "Sunspot Number Recalibration" should appear before the end of the year.

To aid in our planning, we solicit statements of interest from potential Guest Editors of Topical Issues by 01 October 2016, via email to

John Leibacher, Cristina Mandrini, Lidia van Driel-Gesztelyi, Michael Wheatland
