Academic journal Peer-reviewed periodical relating to an academic discipline

An academic journal or scholarly journal is a periodical publication in which scholarship relating to a particular academic discipline is published. Academic journals serve as permanent and transparent forums for the presentation, scrutiny, and discussion of research. They nearly-universally require peer-review or other scrutiny from contemporaries competent and established in their respective fields. Content typically takes the form of articles presenting original research, review articles, or book reviews. The purpose of an academic journal, according to Henry Oldenburg, is to give researchers a venue to "impart their knowledge to one another, and contribute what they can to the Grand design of improving natural knowledge, and perfecting all Philosophical Arts, and Sciences."

Paul Rowland Julian, a Fellow of the American Meteorological Society, is an American meteorologist who served as a longtime staff scientist at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR), was co-author with Roland Madden of the study establishing the Madden–Julian oscillation (MJO), and contributed to the international, multi-institutional Global Atmospheric Research Program (GARP), Tropical Wind, Energy Conversion, and Reference Level Experiment (TWERLE), and Tropical Ocean-Global Atmosphere (TOGA) meteorology research programs. The MJO meteorologic phenomenon he co-discovered is the largest element of the intraseasonal variability in the tropical atmosphere, a traveling pattern arising from large-scale coupling between atmospheric circulation and tropical deep convection. Description of the MJO remains an important contribution to climate research with relevance to modern short- and long-term weather and climate modeling.

The highest temperature recorded on Earth has been measured in three major ways: air, ground, and via satellite observation. Air measurements are used as the standard measurement due to persistent issues with unreliable ground and satellite readings. Air measurements are noted by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) and Guinness World Records among others as the standard to be used for determining the official record. The current official highest registered air temperature on Earth is 56.7 °C (134.1 °F), recorded on 10 July 1913 at Furnace Creek Ranch, in Death Valley in the United States. For ninety years, a former record that was measured in Libya had been in place, until it was decertified in 2012 based on evidence that it was an erroneous reading. This finding has since raised questions about the legitimacy of the 1913 record measured in Death Valley, with several meteorological experts asserting that there were similar irregularities. The WMO has stood by the record as official pending any future investigative results. If the current record were to be decertified then the holder would be a tie at 54.0 °C (129.2 °F), recorded both at Furnace Creek, and in Kuwait.

Polarforschung is a biannual peer-reviewed open-access academic journal published by Copernicus Publications on behalf of the German Society for Polar Research and the Alfred Wegener Institute for Polar and Marine Research. It was established in 1931, with articles appearing both in English and German. It covers a range of topics broadly related to the fields of polar, glaciological, and high-mountain research. Historically, reports from polar expeditions and reviews on polar topics were published as well. Though the journal originally published only on topics within the natural sciences, the current version of the journal includes contributions from an expanded range of polar and high-mountain research disciplines, including biology and ecology, geology and geophysics, geodesy and glaciology, permafrost, oceanography, climate and meteorology, history and social sciences, education, and outreach and knowledge transfer. The journal publishes scientific articles, review articles, reports for the polar community, teaching materials or concepts, and book reviews, alongside news and updates from the German Society for Polar Research, the Association of Polar Early Career Scientists Germany Board, and relevant conference reports. The journal no longer accepts manuscripts which show yet-unpublished or original data and results, and instead focuses on scientific articles with an overarching thematic focus.
