How to publish in this journal


Iranian Journal of Earth Sciences (IJES) publishes review papers of all aspects of Earth Sciences or treatises on an expanding Earth Sciences subject. Covering a much wider field than the usual specialist journals, it allows the reader to see his particular interest related to the earth sciences as a whole. Because of the breadth and depth of its approach to subjects of current interest, the journal is an important vehicle of information gathering for instructors. Earth sciences have shown rapid development during the last few decades and the need for a platform to disseminate and share the new findings and results was being felt by the geoscientific community as a whole. The IJES is a step in this direction in assuming the responsibility to uphold the interest of the scientists by providing them opportunities to share the results and to interact with each other as well as with rest of the world. This journal will act as a window for exchange of knowledge and information between geoscientists and offer a platform for interaction of Iranian geoscientists with their international colleagues. The IJES is an international journal and the results of research pertaining to geosciences from any part of the world are welcome. It is implied that all the papers submitted are based on original research and will have to undergo peer review as per the policy of the journal. The scopes of the journal include, but are not limited to, the following topics: Isotopic Geology; Petrology; Orogeny; Magmatism; Metamorphism; Regional Geology; Economic Geology; Geochemistry; Environmental Geology; Structural Geology and Tectonics; Geohazards and Georisks; Paleontology; Quaternary Science; Soil Processes; Volcanology; Mineralogy; Geophysics; Earthquakes and Seismology; Engineering Geology; Bio Geoscience; Mining Engineering; Petroleum Engineering; Sedimentary Geology; Hydrogeology.

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.

Total Documents

Evolution of the number of published documents. All types of documents are considered, including citable and non citable documents.

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.
