Members' Access to Journals

One of the major ways that the Society promotes meteorological science is through publishing a series of world-leading journals.

These are Atmospheric Science Letters (ASL), an online only journal, the Quarterly Journal (QJ), Meteorological Applications (Met Apps) and International Journal of Climatology (IJC). We also publish WIREs, a climate change journal, which is published in association with the Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) and an Open Access Geoscience Data Journal
