Geophysics Journals




Geophysics Journals

Ultimate Ranking List of Peer-Reviewed Academic Journals in Geophysics

By the only real (centennial) impact.  Denoised for short-term (2-, 3-year) "impact" or "Impact Factors"*. Data are from years in which the journals existed under registered titles — not what publishers claim, because title registration guarantees quality assurance uniformly as under declared academic scopes and terms. Latest data: 12/2020. Next update: 12/2025.

  *Short-term "impact" and "Impact Factors" such as 2- and 3-year were created by one Eugene Garfield - owner of Clarivate monopoly known as "a man who has done enormous harm to true science" [Colquhoun, D. (2007) Physiology News 69:12-14] Short-term "impacts" are meaningless, and are used to increase corporate profit margin of Clarivate, Elsevier, Springer, Wiley, and similar predators that monopolized scientific publishing process.
