Intructions to authors
Submission of a manuscript implies that the work described has not been published before; that it is not under consideration for publication anywhere else; that its publication has been approved by all co-authors, if any, as well as by the responsible authorities - tacitly or explicitly - at the institute where the work has been carried out. The publisher will not be held legally responsible should there be any claims for compensation.
Once the paper is accepted for publication, the author(s) transfer(s) the copyright of the paper to Meteorologische Zeitschrift.
