Chemical Geology

  • ISSN: 0009-2541
  • 5 Year impact factor: 4.1
  • Impact factor: 3.9
Chemical Geology incorporates the journal previously known as Isotope Geoscience and is the journal affiliated with the European Association of Geochemistry. Chemical Geology geochemical studies of fundamental and broad significance to enhance the understanding of the Earth and the solar system, focusing on chemical and mineralising processes in igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary systems, low- and high-temperature mineral-fluid interactions, biogeochemistry, the environment and cosmochemistry. Papers that are field, experimentally, or computationally based are appropriate if they are of broad international interest. The journal generally does not publish papers of mainly regional interest, or which are primarily focused on remediation, applied geochemistry, applied economic geology and pure geochronology. The Journal also welcomes innovative papers dealing with significant analytical advances that are of wide interest in the community and extend significantly beyond the scope of what would be included in the methods section of a standard research paper. This journal welcomes contributions that support and advance the UN's sustainable development goals, in particular SDG 6 (Clear water and sanitation), SDG 13, (Climate Action) and SDG 14 (Life below water).

Earth-Science Reviews

  • ISSN: 0012-8252
  • 5 Year impact factor: 13.6
  • Impact factor: 12.1
The following are examples of what the editors consider to demonstrate very well the kind of review article that ESR hopes to publish: http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.earscirev.2013.12.005 Geophysical constraints on the link between cratonization and orogeny: Evidence from the Tibetan Plateau and the North China Craton http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.earscirev.2007.04.001Subduction kinematics and dynamic constraints http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.earscirev.2008.04.0053.5 billion years of glass bioalteration: Volcanic rocks as a basis for microbial life? http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.earscirev.2016.01.005 Resolving MISS conceptions and misconceptions: a geological approach to sedimentary surface textures generated by microbial and abiotic processes http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.earscirev.2015.05.001 Legacy effects of sediments in river corridors http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.earscirev.2014.12.004 Paleogeographic trends in Late Triassic reef ecology from northeastern Panthalassa http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.earscirev.2016.04.008 The occurrence, identification and environmental relevance of vivianite in waterlogged soils and aquatic sediments Covering a much wider field than the usual specialist journals, Earth Science Reviews publishes review articles dealing with all aspects of Earth Sciences, and is an important vehicle for allowing readers to see their particular interest related to the Earth Sciences as a whole. Our readership is more diverse than that of specialist journals: as well as research scientists, also students, government agencies involved in programme support and management and in environmental assessment and control, private industries concerned with planetary resources, and the independent consultant. The journal's vision includes ensuring accessibility for all of these groups. Every review article published will advance existing knowledge and highlight new directions being taken at the forefront of expanding subject areas by synthesis, evaluation and discussion of previously published literature. The value of such articles to the readership is increased with comment and opinion provided by the author from a specific context. Authors may further enhance their article with the addition of supplementary material such as videos, datasets and applications. Articles may be extensive, providing comprehensive coverage of a relatively broad or cross-disciplinary subject area, or they may be much shorter providing an in-depth overview of a very specific topic, and authors may choose to include a proportion of their own primary research data to support their arguments. From time to time, 'Invited Earth-Science Reviews' will be published about topics of exceptional interest. Other styles of 'review' article will be considered; these include critical reviews of methods used in the geosciences, case studies which illustrate and provide critical review of concepts of global significance, and articles that use previously published literature as a basis to develop aspects of industrial or social policy relevant to the earth sciences. Submissions that simply aggregate previous literature and do not build on current awareness, or those that are structured like a primary research paper, are unlikely to be accepted for publication. Authors of primary research articles are encouraged to submit their work to a subject-appropriate journal, rather than to Earth-Science Reviews. Earth Science Reviews offers authors the rare opportunity to explore a particular subject without any limitation on the number of words used. We encourage authors to adopt a writing style which balances conciseness with the need to do justice to their chosen subject. Therefore, authors of review articles in excess of around 20,000 words should first discuss their idea by email with one of the journal editors, copied to Tim Horscroft, the Review Papers Coordinator, ([email protected]), to ensure the project's suitability for potential publication. This journal welcomes review-type papers within its scope that support and advance the UN's sustainable development goals, in particular SDG 13, (Climate Action) SDG 14 (Life below water) and SDG 15 (Life on land)

Engineering Geology is an international interdisciplinary journal bridging the fields of the earth sciences and engineering, particularly geological and geotechnical engineering. The focus of the journal is on geological or engineering studies that are of interest to engineering geologists, whether their initial training is in geology or civil/mining engineering. The studies published in this journal must show relevance to engineering, environmental concerns, and safety. Sample topics of interest include but are not limited to applied geomorphology and structural geology, applied geophysics and geochemistry, environmental geology and hydrogeology, land use planning, natural hazards, remote sensing techniques, soil and rock mechanics and applied geotechnical engineering. Paper types considered are original research articles, case histories, and comprehensive reviews. Case studies, in particular, should emphasize why the paper is of interest to the international readership of this journal, and/or what new or novel research or theoretical methods are being presented. The journal is intended for academic scientists, industry and applied researchers, and policy and decision makers.

Geoderma

  • ISSN: 0016-7061
  • 5 Year impact factor: 7
  • Impact factor: 6.1
Geoderma - The Global Journal of Soil Science - welcomes authors, readers and soil research from all parts of the world, encourages worldwide soil studies, and embraces all aspects of soil science and its associated pedagogy. The journal particularly welcomes interdisciplinary work focusing on dynamic soil processes and functions across space and time. Geoderma aims to stimulate cooperation and understanding among workers in the different fields of soil science by bringing together papers from the entire field of soil research rather than emphasizing any single sub-discipline. The journal publishes primary studies, reviews as well as scientific correspondence with respect to all types of soils, including agricultural, forest, and urban soils. In order to facilitate extrapolation of published results, the journal strongly encourages the authors to include a soil classification according to the World Reference Base for Soil Resources and, if appropriate, a published national classification system. In order to avoid author disappointment as a result of rapid desk rejections, a series of blogs (Top tips to avoid desk rejection) on the most common reasons for desk rejection is available on the journal's page. It is strongly encouraged to study them carefully before submitting to Geoderma.

Proceedings of the Geologists' Association

  • ISSN: 0016-7878
  • 5 Year impact factor: 1.4
  • Impact factor: 1.2
Official Journal of the Geologists' AssociationContact: The Geologists' Association, Burlington House, Piccadilly, London W1J 0DU, UK, Tel: (+44) 020 7434 9298, e-mail: [email protected] The Proceedings of the Geologists' Association is an international geoscience journal that was founded in 1859 and publishes research and review papers on all aspects of Earth Science. In particular, papers will focus on the geology of northwestern Europe and the Mediterranean, including both the onshore and offshore record. Following a long tradition, the PGA will focus on: i) a range of article types (see below) on topics of wide relevance to Earth Sciences ii) papers on aspects of Earth Science that have societal relevance including geoconservation and Earth management, iii) papers on palaeoenvironments and palaeontology of the Mesozoic and Cenozoic, iv) papers on aspects of Quaternary geology and climate change, and v) papers on the history of geology with particular reference to individuals that have shaped the subject. These topics will also steer the content of the themes of the Special Issues that are published in the PGA.Papers published in the PGA will take the form of Research papers and Review papers. In addition it will publish Viewpoints, which are aimed to provide authoritative views from Earth Scientists on topics of debate within our subject, Topical or Teaching Perspectives on subjects of current, or potentially future importance and are not necessarily research papers but are written in a manner that makes them particularly accessible to the general public and students, and Contexts, which are short papers giving the wider scientific context of a paper that is published in the same issue. Submissions of all these types of papers, within the scope and aims of the journal, are welcome. Rapid Communications are no longer appropriate as all papers are published rapidly, being available on Science Direct with a doi, as soon as the proof has been corrected.Benefits to authors We also provide many author benefits, such as free PDFs, a liberal copyright policy, special discounts on Elsevier publications and much more.
