Earth System Dynamics (ESD) has developed very well since its start in 2010. At the end of 2013, it was indexed by Thomson Reuters in their Web of Science/ISI, and it received its first-time Impact Factor of 2.77 in June 2014. This is a substantial success, reflecting the high international quality of the interdisciplinary papers that are published in ESD in the field of Earth system science. To further the growth of ESD in 2015, the European Geosciences Union (EGU) science has decided to waive the article processing charges, before reduced charges start in 2016.
We wish to thank all authors, referees, the editorial team and support by Copernicus Publications for making Earth System Dynamics such a success.
