Selected Open Access Journals in Earth Sciences
Atmospheric Environment: X
Atmospheric Environment: X offers authors with high-quality research who want to publish in a gold open access journal the opportunity to make their work immediately, permanently, and freely accessible.
Communications Earth & Environment
Communications Earth & Environment is a new gold OA journal from Springer Nature. It publishes primary research, reviews, and commentary in all areas of the earth, environmental, and planetary sciences.
Earth’s Future is a transdisciplinary, Gold Open Access journal examining the state of the planet and its inhabitants, sustainable and resilient societies, the science of the Anthropocene, and predictions of our common future through research articles, reviews and commentaries.
This journal from the American Meteorological Society (AMS) particularly encourages submissions that address interactions among lithosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere in the context of global issues or global change.
Earth & Space Science
Earth and Space Science is the only journal that reflects the expansive range of science represented by AGU’s 62,000 members, including all of the Earth, planetary, and space sciences, and related fields in environmental science, geoengineering, space engineering, and biogeochemistry.
Geoscience Communication has been around since 2018, but has had a low profile compared with other European Geosciences Union journals. It is not currently indexed in Scopus or Web of Science, and GeoRef includes only one reference out of the 70-plus articles that have appeared in the journal. Its unique scope focuses on geoscience education, geoscience public engagement, geoscience policy, history and philosophy of geosciences, open geoscience, and citizen science.
International Journal of Applied Earth Observation and Geoinformation
From January 2020 International Journal of Applied Earth Observation and Geoinformation is an open access journal. Authors who publish in International Journal of Applied Earth Observation and Geoinformation will be able make their work immediately, permanently, and freely accessible.
Journal of Advances in Modeling Earth Systems (JAMES)
JAMES publishes research related to a wide range of problems in climate science, including atmospheric and oceanic circulations on multiple scales; radiation, cloud physics, boundary layer, and land surface processes; the biosphere and cryosphere; biogeochemical cycles; and the development of numerical methods, model parameterizations, and data assimilation methods for Earth systems modeling.
De Gruyter offers this international, peer-reviewed journal publishing original research results from all fields of Earth Sciences such as: Geology, Geophysics, Geography, Geomicrobiology, Geotourism, Oceanography and Hydrology, Glaciology, Atmospheric Sciences, Speleology, Volcanology, Soil Science, Geoinformatics, Geostatistics. The journal was formerly known as Central European Journal of Geosciences - CEJG
Planetary Science Journal
The Planetary Science Journal is an open access journal devoted to recent developments, discoveries, and theories in planetary science. The journal welcomes all aspects of investigation of the solar system and other planetary systems.
Results in Geochemistry
Results in Geochemistry is an international open-access peer reviewed journal that publishes a wide range of original research papers on isotopic and elemental geochemistry, both organic and inorganic. The journal focuses on geochemical processes in the hydrosphere, biosphere, and lithosphere of the Earth, including but not restricted to igneous, metamorphic, and sedimentary petrology, low- and high-temperature aqueous solutions, biogeochemistry, the environment and cosmochemistry. The journal also welcomes papers on planetary geochemistry, applied geochemistry and paleoclimate.
The Seismic Record
An open-access, online only journal, publishing high-quality short form papers in seismology and earthquake science.
Ukrainian Antarctic Journal
The aim of the scientific professional edition Ukrainian Antarctic journal is to promote the dissemination and exchange of scientific knowledge, research results, theories or views on the polar (Antarctic, Arctic) and high-mountain regions of the planet between specialists from different disciplines.
