How to publish in this journal


The Brazilian Journal of Geology (BJG) is a quarterly journal published by the Brazilian Geological Society with an electronic open access version that provides an in-ternacional medium for the publication of original scientific work of broad interest concerned with all aspects of the earth sciences in Brazil, South America, and Antarctica, in-cluding oceanic regions adjacent to these regions. The BJG publishes papers with a regional appeal and more than local significance in the fields of mineralogy, petrology, geochemistry, paleontology, sedimentology, stratigraphy, structural geology, tectonics, neotectonics, geophysics applied to geology, volcanology, metallogeny and mineral deposits, marine geology, glaciology, paleoclimatology, geochronology, biostratigraphy, engineering geology, hydrogeology, geological hazards and remote sensing, providing a niche for interdisciplinary work on regional geology and Earth history. The BJG publishes articles (including review articles), rapid communications, articles with accelerated review processes, editorials, and discussions (brief, objective and concise comments on recent papers published in BJG with replies by authors). Manuscripts must be written in English. Companion papers will not be accepted. Join the conversation about this journal

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
