Topical Issue on "Space Climate" for JSWSC

The Journal of Space Weather and Space Climate (JSWSC) opens a Topical Issue "Space Climate: Long-term effects of solar variability on the Earth's environment", to appear in 2023.

This Topical Issue (TI) has been initiated at the Space Climate 8 Symposium held in Krakow (Poland) in late September 2022. However, the TI is not restricted to papers presented during the Symposium and is open to all submissions addressing the questions listed below.

This TI invites all contributions aiming at understanding long-term variability of solar activity and its effects on the heliosphere, the Earth's space environment, atmosphere and climate. This, in particular, includes the following research questions:
•    What are the causes, manifestations and effects of long-term variations in solar activity?
•    How do variations in solar activity, whether continuous or transient, affect the Earth’s space environment, atmosphere and climate system on timescales up to millennia?
•    What are the intricacies in the different datasets used to make inferences about long-term solar variations, like the sunspot number time series and geomagnetic observations?

We welcome all manuscripts considering these aspects of Space Climate. The manuscripts must be submitted via the JSWSC online submission tool. Guidelines for the submission of papers and information about article processing charges can be found on the JSWSC website under the tab "Instructions for Authors".

Deadline (submitting papers via the JSWSC online submission tool): 31 May 2023

All manuscripts will be peer-reviewed according to the quality standards of international scientific journals. The type of contributions must fit the style of JSWSC. All manuscripts should contain enough new insights, present the results against a properly referenced background of existing work, and present adequate evidence that supports the conclusions. Papers will be published immediately upon acceptance, without waiting for the TI closure, in electronic format only, and will be freely available to everyone via the JSWSC website. JSWSC offers the possibility to include electronic material, such as animations, movies, codes and data.
