Dear Colleagues,

It is my pleasure to draw your attention to the possibility of submitting papers to the Topical Issue on Space Climate in the Journal of Space Weather and Space Climate (SWSC).

This is an open call for papers discussing any aspect of Space Climate, i.e., the long-term change in the Sun and its effects in the heliosphere (solar wind, HMF, cosmic rays etc.) and the near-Earth space environment, including magnetosphere, ionosphere, and the solar effects on the atmosphere and climate.

This Topical Issue originates from, but is not restricted to contributions presented at the Space Climate Symposium-4 in January, 2011 in Goa, India, and in the Space Climate Session at the ESWW8 meeting in November 2011 in Namur, Belgium.

Only full-length papers written in readable English will be considered for publication, and are subject to peer review by two reviewers. There is no page limit although the length of the paper should be appropriate for the material being presented.

Both original papers and, e.g., review papers (for instance from invited review talks presented in SC4) can be considered for publication.

Publication in SWSC is free of charge.

The manuscripts should be submitted electronically to SWSC web page by
February 29, 2012

Please send the (preliminary, non-binding) title and author list of Your coming manuscript to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. by
January 15, 2012

The general format for submission of papers is on the SWSC web site (Author information).
