Manuscript types

  • Research articles report new developments, significant advances, or novel aspects of aerosol research within the scope of the journal.
  • Review articles summarize the status of knowledge and outline future directions of research within the scope of the journal. Before preparing and submitting a review article, please contact a topic editor covering the relevant subject area and the executive editor.
  • Opinions are concise, authoritative articles written by experts that include agenda-setting and/or provocative viewpoints on topical issues within the scope of the journal. Topics of relevance include perspectives on recent major research developments, policy or societal issues, as well as perspectives on the historical or future direction of the author's area of expertise. Opinions should be insightful and informative for a wide readership and written in an engaging style. The open review and discussion is intended to stimulate scientific debate and overseen by the AR chief editor. Opinion articles are generally invited, but authors with ideas for an opinion paper are encouraged to contact the chief editor. The title must clearly reflect the manuscript type and start with "Opinion:".
  • Corrigenda correct errors in preceding papers. The manuscript title reads as follows: Corrigendum to "TITLE" published in JOURNAL, VOLUME, PAGES, YEAR. Please note that corrigenda are only possible for final revised journal papers and not for the corresponding preprints. Corrigenda have to be submitted to Copernicus Publications within 3 years from the publication date of the original journal article. Should there be reasons for publishing a second corrigendum within these 3 years, the first one will be substituted by a single new corrigendum containing all relevant corrections.
