AMS is pleased to launch its newest journal, Artificial Intelligence for the EarthSystems (AIES).
In the October 2021 Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society*, AMS Executive Director Keith Seitter wrote:
“AMS has...[a] rich history of creating scientific journals that have served the disciplines covered by the Society very well, and that have evolved over time to capture emerging subdisciplines to allow useful dissemination of peer-reviewed research among the scientists working in those subject areas.
That process continues with the launching of the newest AMS journal. [This new journal will cover the topics of] ...artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), data science, and related fields as they are applied to atmospheric, oceanic, hydrologic, and related sciences…. The growth of research and applications in these subdisciplines is readily apparent in the increasing number of articles covering these topics in the existing AMS journals and in the growth of AI conferences dealing with weather and climate applications. While current AMS journals have been publishing applications of AI/ML and statistics, AIES will expand on this to also include publishing work on the development of novel methodologies. By developing a journal for both methods and application, AMS is fostering a community of AI/ML practice for the range of disciplinary sciences covered by the Society.”
Submissions to AIES are now being accepted. More information about the new journal and guidelines for authors can be found on the AIES website. AMS journals are recognized as among the highest quality peer-reviewed publications in the world covering the atmospheric and related sciences. We fully expect AIES to be similarly recognized as it joins the AMS journal family.
