Why read

  • premier source of excellent articles for young and experienced scientists
  • free of charge access to articles for readers from all over the world
  • international forum for the dissemination of research data from various areas of Earth Sciences
  • designed to facilitate the exchange of ideas between researchers from different countries
  • accommodates different styles and formats to help scientists from various backgrounds of geosciences interact effortlessly

Why submit

  • fast, fair and constructive peer-review (25 days on average) provided by international specialists from various fields of geosciences
  • language correction service for authors from non-English speaking regions
  • efficient route to fast-track publication (3 months of manuscript submission)
