Aims and scope

Earth, Planets and Space (EPS) is an international, peer-reviewed and open access e-journal publishing high-quality scientific articles in the Earth and Planetary Sciences, particularly geomagnetism, aeronomy, space science, seismology, volcanology, geodesy, and planetary science. EPS also welcomes articles in new and interdisciplinary subjects, including those on new instrumentation. 

EPS publishes in a variety of formats: Full Papers, Express Letters, Frontier Letters, Technical Reports and Comments. In all of these categories, only new and original contents will be considered for publication. Express Letters provide authors with a way to rapidly publish brief reports of high-impact results. Frontier Letters cover frontier research in various fields in Earth and Planetary Sciences, and can be contributed only through an invitation by the Editor-in-Chief. Technical Reports present technical aspects of research in related fields. EPS also provides a venue for topical special issues based on conferences, research projects, and other research initiatives.
