Including the word 'international' in journal titles is a deliberate way to focus attention on the fact that our journals are truly international not only in the authors they attract but also in the diverse countries editors originate from and the international range of their Editorial Boards.
All papers are double-blind refereed.
The Inderscience philosophy is to address complex, wide-ranging academic and research topics and to cluster journals around those topics so that researchers, industrialists and policy makers can subscribe to either a specific journal, a sub-cluster or the complete cluster to provide either a focus on a specific part, or comprehensive coverage, of their chosen field.
Inderscience welcomes high-quality articles submitted in accordance with academic and professional protocols. All such papers will be screened upon submission to ensure that they meet our initial criteria and, if found acceptable, will go forward into our double-blind review process. More information on our requirements for submissions is available at our For Authors page.
We endeavour to make the submissions process pleasant and efficient, offering the facility of a custom-built online submissions and review system through which authors can track the progress of their article. Once the paper is accepted, our experienced Journal Managers and typesetters will work with you to ensure the smooth passage of your paper to publication.
There are no fees for publishing with Inderscience, unless you require your article to be OA. OA articles accepted for publication are available online and freely accessible to all without any restriction except use for commercial purposes; a fee must be paid by the author(s) for an article to be made OA. Open Access papers may be published according to the Inderscience Open Access option.
Inderscience offers a pick-and-mix approach to our subscription-based journals. Subscribers can choose a single journal, a publisher-defined topic area or the whole collection, or can choose a selection of titles from across the clusters to build their own customised collection. Subs@inderscience.com will answer all your questions about customising your own collection.

D. Reidel was an academic publishing company based in Dordrecht. It joined with Kluwer in the 1990s as Kluwer/Reidel, together being purchased by Cinven and Candover in 2003. Cinven and Candover also purchased Springer, merging the operations of all the publishers into one conglomerate, Springer Science+Business Media, from Spring of 2004. This conglomerate is now "the second largest commercial scholarly publisher in the world" after Elsevier.
Arising out of the Dutch science publishing industry, which has a history influenced strongly by World War II, Reidel was established in the 1960s, with a focus on publishing research in physics. Reidel himself had been trained under an ex-Elsevier manager, M. D. Frank, who considered third generation Dutch publishers like Reidel to be the "grandchildren" of the German publishing company, Aka GmbH Akademische Verlagsgesellschaft (academic publishing company) of Leipzig, where Frank himself was trained. Aka itself was co-founded by Walter Jalowicz (who changed his name to Johnson and later worked for Academic Press in New York) and his son-in-law K. Jacoby, together with the physicist (and spy) Paul Rosbaud (later of Butterworth), and chemist E. Proskauer (later vice-president of John Wiley & Sons).

The JPS (The Physical Society of Japan) has a membership of some 18,000, including research scientists, teachers and engineers, within and without Japan . Its chief objectives are to publish the research output of its members and to assist in their research activities. As of 2008, 45% of its members are working in universities, 15% in private corporations and 12% in public research institutes. 14% of its members are graduate and undergraduate students.
The JPS is the direct successor of the Tokyo Mathematics Company・ Japan 's first academic association of natural sciences, established in 1877. Its birth was not so much behind that of its German counterpart, the German Physics Society, in 1845, and much earlier than the creation of the American Physical Society in 1899. In addition to being one of the global forerunners of such academic associations, its the Mathematics and Physics Journal・ had been made a European language publication from its fourth volume (1888-1891), demonstrating the earliest members' strong international orientation. With such vision and the fruits of research that it conveyed to the wider audience, it is no exaggeration to say that the Tokyo Mathematics Company was one of the leading agents of Japanese modernization.
After World War II, the Mathematics and Physics Society dissolved itself, only to be reborn as the JPS in 1946. Although the Mathematics and Physics Society and indeed the entire natural science community suffered from an unfriendly research environment before and during the war, its members continued to conduct world-class, cutting edge research, resulting in the awarding of the Nobel prize to Yukawa Hideki and Tomonaga Shin'ichiro shortly after the war. The happy news created a science fever among the Japanese nation still struggling to recover from the devastations of war, leading many young students to the field of physics. The resulting increase in the number of scientists and the generally friendly atmosphere towards scientific research no doubt contributed to the process of rapid reconstruction and growth the Japanese economy experienced hence, which would have been impossible without an expanded knowledge base.
Today, JPS is among the core institutions of physical research in Japan , which is among the world's leading nations in the field. With newly industrializing countries emerging also as research centers, there is high expectation in these countries and beyond on the positive role that JPS can play in their development. Now the JPS has signed agreements with its American, Korean and German counterparts so that members of each body could participate in other bodies and enjoy the rights and privileges of those bodies.
The JPS publishes Nihon Butsuri Gakkai-shi(Butsuri)・in Japanese to provide information on developments in physics and the physics community to its members. Its academic publication is the monthly Journal of the Physical Society of Japan・which provides an outlet for research results of Japanese researchers as well as overseas members. Also, the JPS publishes the journal Daigaku-no-Butsuri Kyoiku (teaching physics in college)・three times a year to facilitate members' exchange of information on the subject. Furthermore, important articles are collected by field of research and compiled into volumes of Butsuri-gaku Ronbun Senshu (selected works in physics)・ alongside other books related to physics.proceedings・ minutes of international conferences the JPS was involved, is another of its publications.
The JPS organizes every spring and autumn conferences and subcommittees where its members gather to present their research results and make discussions on them. For both the spring and autumn meetings, participation exceeds 5,000. In the summer, JPS sponsored lecture courses are given to the general audience, touching upon timely topics and introducing latest findings as well as explaining the basics of the subject.
The JPS discusses the direction education of physics should take, and on the basis of those discussions make recommendations and requests to relevant institutions and government agencies. It also organizes international conferences, exchanges information and cooperates with physics societies abroad as well as with international academic bodies and research institutes. The JPS thus plays an important role in the development and progress of physics both domestically and internationally.
General enlightenment is an important component of JPS activity. citizens' science lectures・ seminars on science for high school students and above, open session lectures and enjoyable science experiment labs for elementary school pupils and junior high school students are carried out every year concurrently to the conferences and subcommittees, engendering understanding of, and interest in, physics by the general audience. In particular, the junior session of the spring conference, which is a venue for high school students to present their research, the young participants gain much from their exchange with members of the physics community at the forefront of research.

The World Meteorological Organization (WMO) is a specialized agency of the United Nations. It is the UN system's authoritative voice on the state and behaviour of the Earth's atmosphere, its interaction with the oceans, the climate it produces and the resulting distribution of water resources.
WMO has a membership of 188Member States and Territories(since 24 January 2007). It originated from the International Meteorological Organization (IMO), which was founded in 1873. Established in 1950, WMO became the specialized agency of the United Nations in 1951 for meteorology (weather and climate), operational hydrology and related geophysical sciences.
As weather, climate and the water cycle know no national boundaries, international cooperation at a global scale is essential for the development of meteorology and operational hydrology as well as to reap the benefits from their application. WMO provides the framework for such international cooperation.
Since its establishment, WMO has played a unique and powerful role in contributing to the safety and welfare of humanity. Under WMO leadership and within the framework of WMO programmes, National Meteorological and Hydrological Services contribute substantially to the protection of life and property against natural disasters, to safeguarding the environment and to enhancing the economic and social well-being of all sectors of society in areas such as food security, water resources and transport.
WMO promotes cooperation in the establishment of networks for making meteorological, climatological, hydrological and geophysical observations, as well as the exchange, processing and standardization of related data, and assists technology transfer, training and research. It also fosters collaboration between the National Meteorological and Hydrological Services of its Members and furthers the application of meteorology to public weather services, agriculture, aviation, shipping, the environment, water issues and the mitigation of the impacts of natural disasters.
WMO facilitates the free and unrestricted exchange of data and information, products and services in real- or near-real time on matters relating to safety and security of society, economic welfare and the protection of the environment. It contributes to policy formulation in these areas at national and international levels.
In the specific case of weather-, climate and water-related hazards, which account for nearly 90% of all natural disasters, WMO's programmes provide vital information for the advance warnings that save lives and reduce damage to property and the environment. WMO also contributes to reducing the impacts of human-induced disasters, such as those associated with chemical and nuclear accidents, forest fire and volcanic ash. Studies have shown that, apart from the incalculable benefit to human well-being, every dollar invested in meteorological and hydrological services produces an economic return many times greater, often ten times or more.
WMO plays a leading role in international efforts to monitor and protect the environment through its Programmes. In collaboration with other UN agencies and the National Meteorological and Hydrological Services, WMO supports the implementation of a number of environmental conventions and is instrumental in providing advice and assessments to governments on related matters. These activities contribute towards ensuring the sustainable development and well-being of nations.
