Papers on the history of meteorology, climatology, and related sciences are now being accepted for consideration in History of Meteorology 3 (2006). Articles should be based on original research and present a novel thesis. They must be engaging, clearly written, and fully documented, following the style guide below. All manuscripts will be subject to peer review. Authors are reminded that international and interdisciplinary perspectives are encouraged and articles should engage social, cultural, technological, and/or intellectual themes and contexts. Because this is an electronic journal, it is possible to publish color illustrations and experiment with alternative media such as audio and video files and databases. Prospective authors must follow the style guidelines published in volume 2. Session conveners are invited to propose special sections or issues of the journal.
History of Meteorology has a stable URL at and has been assigned ISSN 1555-5763 by the U.S. Library of Congress. It is currently being indexed by two leading services: Isis Current Bibliography of the History of Science (from which citations are posted online on the RLG History of Science and Technology database) and Meteorological and Geoastrophysical Abstracts.
The deadline for submissions for volume three is 1 September 2006, but earlier notice is appreciated. Queries or manuscripts should be directed to the editor, James R. Fleming, e-mail:
