Abstract

Journal Publications in Perspective by Richard E. Orville, AMS Commissioner of Publications, 1986-92 Department of Meteorology, Texas A&M University Six years ago, I began to serve as chair of the Publications Commission. This was to be one of the most rapidly changing periods of journal publication that the Society has ever experienced. In 1986, approximately 10 000 journal pages were published annually by the Society and two new journals were being established: Weather and Forecasting and the Journal of Atmospheric and Oceanic Technology. Not all was peaceful. The areas of inquiry covered by the journals were ill-defined;'climate papers were scattered among several journals, and some members believed that new journals were unnecessary. Joe Smagorinsky, AMS president at the time, assigned the Publications Commission to the task of creating a structure for the Society's journals that would last for the near future, defined at the time to be a period of a decade or so. A series of meetings in 1986-87 led to a realignment of the journals. The title Journal of Climate and Applied Meteorology was returned to its original name, the Journal of Applied Meteorology, and another new journal, the Journal of Climate, was initiated as a monthly
