Scope and policy

 

Meteorologica is a journal of Centro Argentino de Meteorólogos, which is published without interruption since 1970 and serves on the Núcleo Básico de Revistas Científicas Argentinas since 2005. Meteorologica publishes papers related to atmospheric sciences, in the form of articles and notes, written in Spanish or English. Papers must be original and concise. Meteorologica publishes one volume (two issues) per year.
The executive editors conduct an initial consideration on the relevance of work received, decide on the section that potentially it will be included (Article or Notes and Correspondence) and begin the process of peer review by at least two independent reviewers. The selection of reviewers is the preserve of the executive editors and the reviewers' identity is kept confidential. When reviewers´decisions diverge, the paper will be sent to a third reviewer. The review process enables publishers to reject, accept with changes, or accept for publication the work under consideration. Subsequently, the authors report on the outcome of the evaluation. Accepted papers become the intellectual property of the Centro Argentino de Meteorólogos
Authors may submit papers in any of the following options.

Research Papers: they are complete and original contributions within the general topic of Meteorologica.

Notes: are brief descriptions of techniques, methods, data or short contributions that require immediate dissemination.

Correspondence: contains comments and discussion of articles published in previous volumes and will be accompanied by the response of the authors.
