A community journal grown up: celebrating 10 years of Climate of the Past

02 April 2015

Climate of the Past was launched as a community-driven journal on 05 June 2005, a few weeks after EGU 2005.

Since its beginning, Climate of the Past has been a venue for open-access publishing of research results with a transparent review system. The journal’s scope covers the four main domains of palaeoclimatic analysis: ice, ocean, land, and modelling. These domains are represented on the journal cover and in the expertise of the four co-editors-in-chief. After being WoS-indexed just two years after its launch, Climate of the Past has grown to the point that it is now, 10 years later, a key component in the palaeoscience world and a globally well-acknowledged publication.

We would like to thank everyone who has supported Climate of the Past, including authors, editors, reviewers, and publishers – all of whom have made this journey an exciting success story. What a great pleasure to work with you all!

Join us for a special celebration of our 10th anniversary, open to all, during the EGU General Assembly 2015 in Vienna on Thursday 16 April, room Y9, 7:00–8:00 pm.
