Earth System Science Data (ESSD) is an international, interdisciplinary journal for the publication of articles on original research data (sets), furthering the reuse of high-quality data of benefit to Earth system sciences. The editors encourage submissions on original data or data collections which are of sufficient quality and have potential to contribute to these aims. The journal maintains sections for regular-length articles, brief communications (e.g. on additions to data sets) and commentaries, as well as review articles and special issues.

This short commentary draws on ESSD author, reviewer and editor experiences over its first 10 years of operation to define guidelines, requirements and benefits of the ESSD processes.

Dear colleagues, due to the current coronavirus situation, we are experiencing unusual challenges and delays in manuscript handling and reviewing, for which we would like to ask for your understanding.

Many thanks and best wishes, the ESSD chief editors on behalf of the editorial board

07 Jan 2020 Moving ESSD forward

In 2018, Hans Pfeiffenberger and Dave Carlson retired after 10 years of building up ESSD with tremendous dedication and success; 2019 then served as a reorientation phase with the journal managed in the interim by 5 chief editors. Now, by agreement of all parties, we announce our new structure for ESSD.
