The Revista de Climatología (ISSN 1578-8768) is an independent international scientific journal, free for both readers and authors, without any processing or publication fees. It was established in 2001 to disseminate research articles in the fields of Climatology (Agroclimatology, Bioclimatology, Climate Change, Climate System, Paleoclimatology, Synoptic Climatology, etc).
The Journal currently accepts original manuscripts in Spanish or English. (Initiated as a Spanish only journal, it became bilingual in 2007).

[* The Editorial Board is open to climatologists from all the World willing to collaborate with this project].
Original unpublished research articles, not being submitted to another journal at the same time, should be sent by e-mail to the journal address (reclim[AT]ono.com) to begin the peer-review process of acceptance.
Manuscripts are preferably to be sent as a single PDF file with a maximum size of 5 MBy (see the FAQ), including tables and figures in their most suitable position (normally, after citation on the text). This document will be used for the reviewing process. The paper must be structured into the following sections:
All references must be cited in the text by the contributor's name and year of publication within brackets. E.g.: Associated strong winds were reported by Doswell (2001) and other authors (Shaefer and Livingston, 1993; Romero et al., 2005). Coincident cites will be distinguished by appending a letter (low cap.) to the year of publication: Lyons and Olsson (1972a and 1972b).
The manuscript will be reviewed by two referees chosen by the Editorial Board (authors may suggest some of them for consideration). The reviewers will express an evaluation about the scientific quality of the research paper and give some useful comments. Revisions are usually required before the final publication. The authors should carefully consider the referee's comments and answer in detail to the points raised. The revised manuscript must be again submitted, by email, to the Editor. The manuscript will not be processed for publication until conforming to the referees suggestions.
Upon acceptance of the paper, the final compilation will be done by means of the LaTeX processing system. Should the authors had prepared a LaTeX version of the article, that would be the most suitable way of accelerating the final publication. Otherwise, the editor may take the text and figures from the PDF file, possibly asking the authors to provide illustrations in separate files or assistance in the preparation of tables or formulas.
Once compiled, the article will be sent to the contributors for its final revision (grammar or printing errors) and acceptance. Publication will be done immediately after this last agreement.
This journal provides open access to their contents, based on the principle that offering free public access to research enhances a higher exchange of global knowledge.
The copyright belongs to the authors, who implicitly allow its reproduction by any means as long as no commercial interest is involved. Therefore, articles are published under the Creative Commons BY-NC-ND license: They can be copied, used, reproduced, transmitted and publicly exposed, as long as: i) authorship and original publication source are cited; ii) no commercial used is implied; iii) the existence and specifications of this license are mentioned.
The responsibility for opinions expressed and material in manuscripts rests with the contributors. Do not hesitate to contact the Editor either at reclim[AT]ono.com or jguijarrop[AT]aemet.es for further information and queries.
We look forward to welcoming your valuable research papers in the field of Climatology.

It is a limit imposed by our hosting provider. It should be enough, especially if you avoid including too many complex figures in your paper.
Not at all. Many free programs can produce those documents, as Cute-PDF for Windows or many others for Linux. If you do not have any of those programs you can submit a PostScript version of your document by printing to a file using a PostScript printer. (The editor will readily convert this PostScript to PDF using the utility 'ps2pdf').
Due to the zero budget of this project, the location of the published articles may change with time. Therefore, it is more advisable to link the base page, where updated links to the articles are maintained.
The articles published in the Revista de Climatología can be found in the Internet through common search methods, general or scholars, and are also indexed in EBSCO, CNKI and DOAJ. However, the journal itself is NOT nowadays indexed in the impact indexes lists compiled by some companies related to scientific edition, though it could be in the future.
In the first place you can consider the possibility of submitting your original climatology works to this journal, and/or make publicity of it. For a greater collaboration you could join the Editorial Board.
