JCC in Emerging Sources Citation Index – November 2017We are pleased to announce that JCC is now covered in the Emerging Sources Citation Index in the Web of Science. IOS Press congratulates Editor-in-Chief Prof. AL Ramanathan on this achievement, which will provide greater discoverability for JCC articles leading to measurable citations. 

Himalayan Climate Change Study Update – August 2017: Three years ago, the JCC Editor-in-Chief Prof. AL Ramanathan of Jawaharlal Nehru University, India was interviewed about his research on glaciers by CNN international news editor Jonathan Mann. The interview can be viewed here: An overview of the study has now been published in the journal in Vol. 3, Iss. 2, 2017 and is available here

Climate change is reality which deals with the problem of climate variability and change and it deals with descriptions, causes, implications, interactions, impact and responses among other causes. The purpose of the journal is to provide a platform to exchange ideas among those working in different disciplines related to climate variations. The journal also plants to create an interdisciplinary forum for discussion of evidence of climate change, its causes, its natural resource impacts and its human impacts. The journal will also explore technological, policy, economy, strategic and social responses to climate change. It will be peer-reviewed, supported by rigorous processes of criterion-referenced article ranking and qualitative commentary, ensuring that only standard accepted quality work of the greatest substance and highest significance is published.

Journal of Climate Change intends to publish most complete and reliable source of information on the discoveries and current developments in the mode of original articles, review articles, case reports, short communications, etc. in all areas of the field. A sustainable world is one in which human needs are met equitably without sacrificing the ability of future generations to meet their needs and without harm to the climate, environment and ecosystem function and service. It has been long recognized that the long-term viability of natural capital is critical for many areas of human endeavour under climate change impact. Climate researchers understand that they play a critical role in forming the policy decision-making process but they need a proper forum. Many of them work remarkably hard to produce more robust greenhouse gas emissions estimations in relation to climate change targets and this journal will act as a platform. Socioeconomic scientists can also contribute to the gap which exists between climate science and policy. The articles from this journal will help to frame policy goals.

Themes intended to be covered: Climate Systems and Sustainable Development; Polution, Climate Change, Risk Assessment, and Human Health; Green Technology and Climate Change Impact; Climate Change Impacts on Cryosphere, and Water Resources Systems; Water Sustainability (Surface and Ground Water) and Climate Change; Agricultural Sustainability and Climate Change; Urban Sustainability and Storm Water Management under Changing Climate; Mitigation and Adaption of Climate Change by Green Production, Pollution Prevention and Control; Dynamics of Coupled Natural and Human Systems Under Climate Change Impacts; Unique Interactions between the Environmental System, Climate Change, Land Use, Ecosystem Function and Services; Modeling Approach to Mitigate and Understand the Climate Change
