This special issue presents papers from the ICS-12 (the 12th International Conference on Substorms) that broadly address various aspects of substorms, i.e., substorm processes in the tail, interaction between the tail and the inner magnetosphere and ionosphere, substorm currents and their dynamics, and the role of substorms in geospace energetics, as well as the role of MHD and kinetic instabilities in substorms. Other substorm-related research topics are also presented, such as the storm-substorm relationship, ULF/ELF/VLF waves, and non-Earth substorm-like features.
