Scope Welcome to Geosphere, the Geological Society of America’s online-only journal. Geosphere’s primary mission is simply to publish high-quality geoscience research results that are international in scope. We also want to encourage innovative approaches to scientific publication, such as the extensive use of color, animations, and interactivity. Geosphere publishes papers from the entire spectrum of the geosciences. The traditional “research paper” is analogous to papers in the Geological Society of America Bulletin. The short “research note” is to some degree analogous to papers in Geology, but we welcome even shorter contributions. Education is a major part of the mission of GSA, and thus, we welcome “educational contributions.”

SJR

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.
