John Wiley and Sons Inc. has announced that the European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE) has chosen to extend their publishing partnership with Wiley with the transition of their international journal Near Surface Geophysics. The journal began publishing on Wiley Online Library in August 2018 and will be available for subscription from Wiley beginning January 2019. The EAGE also partners with Wiley for the publication of Basin Research and Geophysical Prospecting.
Near Surface Geophysics, established in 2003, is an international journal for the publication of research and development in geophysics applied to near surface. It places emphasis on geological, hydrogeological, geotechnical, environmental, engineering, mining, archaeological, agricultural and other applications of geophysics as well as physical soil and rock properties. The journal is peer-reviewed and indexed in the Science Citation Index Expanded.
“For many years, EAGE has been working with Wiley on the journals Basin Research and Geophysical Prospecting to everyone’s satisfaction,” said Elsbeth Koutsoglou, Director of Operations for EAGE. “Due to the fact that Wiley is a large, well-known and specialized publishing company, they have a strong capacity to enhance and develop the publishing process, and to further improve sales and marketing of the journals. They also have a large and very skilled team that can support the peer review process and production of the various journals. With this cooperation, EAGE’s Near Surface Geophysics will be able to attract the attention of more universities around the world. EAGE is convinced that this collaboration with Wiley will further improve the quality and continuity of our journals.”
“We are delighted to extend our successful publishing partnership with the EAGE with the addition of Near Surface Geophysics,” commented Vicky Johnson, Editorial Director of Life Science at Wiley. “We very much look forward to collaborating with them on the development of this exciting interdisciplinary journal in an increasingly important area of geophysics.”
