Welcome to the Manuscript Management System (MMS)
of Journal of Space Weather and Space Climate

In 2013, Thomson Web of Knowledge started indexing the articles published in the Journal of Space Weather and Space Climate.

The current (2014) impact factor is at 2.558. To guarantee the publication of the journal during the transitional period of 2015, processing fees of €500 + tax are applied for articles submitted in 2015 and accepted for publication in SWSC. The fees will increase to €700 + tax for articles submitted after 31 December 2015. Note that this promotional price allows to cover only a part of the publication costs.

When you register a new submission ("submit a paper" in the left-hand menu), you will be asked to enter your personal identifier (author identifier). This is a unique and confidential number that is attributed to you upon your first submission to the Journal of Space Weather and Space Climate (SWSC) or your first accepting to review an article for SWSC. If you have in the past submitted or reviewed an SWSC article you have received an author identifier. If you publish regularly in SWSC, it is a good idea to note your author identifier for future reference.

If you are a new SWSC author you will be asked to fill out a registration form after your starting "submit a paper", and an identifier will be attributed to you.

If you have forgotten your identifier, click on New submission and follow the links for retrieving your number. You will be asked to enter your e-mail address, and your identifier will be mailed to the given address if the MMS finds a correspondence between the e-mail address and an SWSC registered person.

If you have recently changed your e-mail address, do NOT fill out a new registration form, instead contact the Editorial Office at, and your author identifier will be communicated to you.

Please, before submitting your manuscript, check if the presentation complies with the instructions for authors.
