This new journal, expected to launch in May 2015, responds to the rapid growth in cryospheric research and provides authors with a more open, transparent, and rapid review and publication experience. The Frontiers publishing house has grown rapidly since its founding in 2007 by scientists responding to the question, “If reinvented today, what would academic publishing look like?”
All articles published through Frontiers in Cryospheric Science will be open-access (gold) and peer-reviewed quickly and independently by reviewers. Prior to publication, authors and reviewers work interactively to ensure that the submitted article is as flawless as possible. For their efforts, reviewers are recognized in the published article. A unique user interface facilitates this rapid and straightforward review process. Tim Bartholomaus has joined Frontiers in Cryospheric Science as an Associate Editor.
I encourage you to learn more about Frontiers in Cryospheric Science, the Frontiers publishing community, and the Frontiers review system. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions.
