Aims and Scope
Atmospheric Measurement Techniques (AMT) is an international scientific journal dedicated to the publication and discussion of advances in remote sensing, in-situ and laboratory measurement techniques for the constituents and properties of the Earth’s atmosphere.
The main subject areas comprise the development, intercomparison and validation of measurement instruments and techniques of data processing and information retrieval for gases, aerosols, and clouds. The manuscript types considered for peer-reviewed publication are research articles, review articles, and commentaries.
AMT has an innovative two-stage publication process involving the scientific discussion forum Atmospheric Measurement Techniques Discussions (AMTD), which has been designed to:
- foster scientific discussion;
- maximize the effectiveness and transparency of scientific quality assurance;
- enable rapid publication;
- make scientific publications freely accessible.
In the first stage, papers that pass a rapid access peer-review are immediately published on the Atmospheric Measurement Techniques Discussions (AMTD) website. They are then subject to Interactive Public Discussion, during which the referees' comments (anonymous or attributed), additional short comments by other members of the scientific community (attributed) and the authors' replies are also published in AMTD. In the second stage, the peer-review process is completed and, if accepted, the final revised papers are published in AMT. To ensure publication precedence for authors, and to provide a lasting record of scientific discussion, AMTD and AMT are both ISSN-registered, permanently archived and fully citable.
Indexed in Science Citation Index Expanded (Web of Science) , Scopus , ADS , Chemical Abstracts , Current Contents/Physical, Chemical & Earth Sciences and Google Scholar . Included in the Directory of Open Access Journals (DOAJ) as well as in the Bodleian Library (UK) , Deutsche Digitale Bibliothek (D) and Library of Congress (USA) . Long-term e-archived in Portico and CLOCKSS .
Atmospheric Measurement Techniques (AMT) and Atmospheric Measurement Techniques Discussions (AMTD) are published by the Copernicus GmbH (Copernicus Publications) on behalf of the European Geosciences Union (EGU).
