Climanosco‘s goals are:
- Meeting the highest standards in scientific publishing:
- All articles are authored by those individuals who shape our current scientific understanding of climate, the climate researchers themselves.
- Before publication, all Manuscripts undergo a strict peer-review where they can be rejected or accepted.
- The Peer-Review Process is fully transparent and all related data (Manuscripts, Review Reports, Open Discussion, etc…) are archived and are permanently available to all members.
- The Peer-Review proceeds in two stages, with an Open Review followed by an Open Discussion.
- The Open Review consists of Review Reports written by assigned Scientific and Non-scientific Referees, plus Spontaneous Review Reports by any member. Scientific Referees review the scientific content while Non-scientific Referees review the form and language.
- The Open Discussion, again open to all members, allows a general, spontaneous discussion on the Manuscript and the Review reports.
- Making climate sciences accessible to non-scientists:
- All Published Articles are permanently available for free to everyone.
- All Published Articles have gone through a non-scientific peer-review to ensure that they are readable by the general public. Non-scientific Referees verify that articles require no prior scientific knowledge and that they are free from scientific jargon, graphs, etc…
- Articles are of three types: Introductory Articles provide the basics on a topic, General Articles give a broad introduction to a subject whereas the Focus Articles provide the details of our current scientific knowledge. Introductory Articles are helpful if you are new to the field of climate and General Articles are a good place to go if you are new to a particular subject.
- Articles are progressively translated by the members into various languages as the community grows.
- A unique channel for climate scientists to communicate their results to the general public:
- It is reliable: Manuscripts are authored by active scientists and peer-reviewed by active scientists.
- It is fast – publication one or two months after submission of a manuscript.
- It is even easier for original scientific authors: Articles already published in the scientific peer-review literature can be paraphrased in non-scientific language by one of the original authors and submitted to Climanosco. In this case, the peer-review is reduced to its non-scientific part and is even faster.
- A public impact metric for scientists (coming soon): Individual accesses are monitored for all articles and an impact metric is calculated and displayed. This provides scientists a direct measure of the public impact of their research which can be used in Academic CVs.
- A yearly award will be given to the authors of the most read article.
- Engaging citizen into climate science:
- Engaging into the dissemination of knowledge: All members can co-author or translate Manuscripts.
- Engaging into scientific inquiry: All members can formulate an Invitation for a Manuscript to be written on a desired topic.
- Engaging into the scientific research: With the Citizen Climate Science Project, members will become able to contribute to scientific projects.
- An independent journal with a long-term vision:
- Climanosco is a non-for-profit association initiated by scientists.
- It is governed by its members.
- It is exclusively financed by flat memberships and capped donations.
- Its Board is equally composed of climate scientists and non-climate scientists.
