Scientific Journals

  • Biogeosciences
    Biogeosciences (BG) is an international scientific journal dedicated to the publication and discussion of research articles, short communications and review papers on all aspects of the interactions between the biological, chemical and physical processes in terrestrial or extraterrestrial life with the geosphere, hydrosphere and atmosphere. The objective of the journal is to cut across the boundaries of established sciences and achieve an interdisciplinary view of these interactions. Experimental, conceptual and modelling approaches are welcome: Open Access – Public Peer-Review & Interactive Public Discussion – Personalized Copyright under a Creative Commons License.

  • Climate of the past
    Climate of the Past (CP) is an international scientific journal dedicated to the publication and discussion of research articles, short communications and review papers on the climate history of the Earth: Open Access – Public Peer-Review & Interactive Public Discussion – Personalized Copyright under a Creative Commons License.
    Impact Factor: 2,5 (2008).
  • Earth and Planetary Science Letters
    The articles published in this journal reflect the great impact made on research in the geosciences by the use of successful research methods from other disciplines such as chemistry, physics, and mathematics. It also covers research into all aspects of lunar studies, plate tectonics, ocean floor spreading, and continental drift, as well as basic studies of the physical, chemical and mechanical properties of the Earth's crust and mantle, the atmosphere and the hydrosphere.

  • Geology
    Published since 1973 by the Geologocal Society of America, features rapid publication of about 23 refereed short (four-page) papers each month. Articles cover all earth-science disciplines and include new investigations and provocative topics. Professional geologists and university-level students in the earth sciences use this widely read journal to keep up with scientific research trends. The online forum section facilitates author-reader dialog. Includes color and occasional large-format illustrations on oversized loose inserts.

  • Geophysical Research Letters
    GRL is a Letters journal with limited manuscript size also publishing frontier articles (reviews) by invitation from Editors. GRL's mission is to disseminate concisely-written, high-impact research reports on major scientific advances in AGU disciplines, evaluating submissions by:High impact innovative results with broad geophysical implications at the forefront of one or several AGU disciplines; Results with immediate impact on the research of others and requiring rapid publication; Instrument or methods manuscript introducing an innovative technique that makes new science advance possible, with immediate applications to AGU disciplines.

  • Geoscientific Model Development
    GMD is an open access publication of the European Geosciences Union. It is an international scientific journal dedicated to the publication and public discussion of the description, development and evaluation of numerical models of the Earth System and its components. Manuscript types considered for peer-reviewed publication are: geoscientific model descriptions, from box models to General circulation models (GCMs); development and technical papers, describing development such as new parameterisations or technical aspects of running models such as the reproducibility of results; papers describing new standard experiments for assessing model performance, or novel ways of comparing model results with observational data; model intercomparison descriptions, including experimental details and project protocols. GMD has an innovative two-stage publication process involving the scientific discussion forum Geoscientific Model Development Discussions (GMDD).

  • Global Biogeochemical Cycles
    This journal includes papers in the broad areas of global change involving the geosphere and biosphere. The journal focuses on research at large geographic scales. Marine, hydrologic, atmospheric, extraterrestrial, geologic, biologic, and human causes of and response to environmental change on time scales of tens, thousands, and millions of years are the purview of the journal. Impact Factor 4.3356 ranked #5 of 160 titles in Environmental Science, #2 of 51 titles in Meteorology and Atmospheric Sciences, and #2 of 137 titles in Geosciences in the 2007 Journal Citation Reports.
    Impact factor: 4,1 (2008).
  • Nature Geoscience
    Nature Geoscience is committed to publishing significant, high-quality research in the Earth Sciences through a fair, rapid and rigorous peer review process that is overseen by a team of full-time professional editors. In addition to publishing primary research, Nature Geoscience provides an overview of the most important developments in the Earth Sciences through the publication of Review Articles, News and Views, Research Highlights, Commentaries and reviews of relevant books and arts events.
    Impact factor: 1,5 (2008)
  • Quaternary Science reviews
    Quaternary Science Reviews includes, for example, geology, geomorphology, geography, archaeology, soil science, palaeobotany, palaeontology, palaeoclimatology and the full range of applicable dating methods. The dividing line between what constitutes the review paper and one which contains new original data is not easy to establish, so QSR also publishes papers with new data especially if these perform a review function. Quaternary Science Reviews includes Special Issues on topical subjects arising from recent scientific meetings.
    Impact factor: 4.1 (in 2008).
