Advertising Information

FastTIMES is a news magazine published electronically by the Environmental and Engineering Geophysical Society (EEGS). Each issue of FastTIMES features technical articles on diverse topics, news from the near-surface geophysical community, information on recent and coming events, titles of articles published in near-surface journals, and notices of professional opportunities.

FastTIMES is distributed to EEGS members and is offered to other professional societies for voluntary redistribution. For a limited time, it is also freely available for download from the EEGS web site. Each month, FastTIMES tops the list of downloaded documents; per-issue downloads commonly exceed 10,000.

Advertisers are encouraged to distribute FastTimes to their own mailing lists. Advertisements should be submitted as pdf or raster (jpg or tiff) files at a resolution of at least 300 pixels per inch (125 pixels per cm) at final size.

Enhanced Value Advertising Opportunities in FastTIMES 2018

 FastTIMES in 2018 offers enhanced advertising values because, with the new redesign and our plans to have more FastTIMES Special Issues in partnership with other geoscience societies as well as end-user sector focused Regular Columns, the intention is to increase the range and quality of content and provide greater appeal and technical value to a wider audience than just geophysicists.

The circulation of FastTIMES is progressively increasing as we increasingly utilize FastTIMES to reach out and gain better engagement, publicity and circulation with the non-geophysical Societies and communities. Our aim is to have at least a 6-fold increase in circulation to greater than 20,000 regular downloads per issue throughout 2018 (compared to an early 2017 circulation of 3000). We are expanding to 5 issues in 2018 including the SAGEEP 2018 FastTIMES  (Volume 1 and Volume 2) and also planning for 6 issues in 2019.

This outreach, expansion and improvements means that your advertising in FastTIMES will increasingly reach decision makers that determine utilization and budgets of geophysical methods in geoscience investigations, typically non-geophysicists (managers, engineers, geologists). This will inevitably generate greater potential utilization of the services of geophysical consultants, contractors / service providers and technologies (equipment and software).

Consultants, contractors and geophysical technology providers are invited to take out a 1/3rd, ¼, ½ or full-page advertisement or advertise in our Professional Directory (a business card advert). Advertisements are available with discounts for a full year of advertising commitment. In addition, our regular Industry News column (Page 87) particularly welcomes technically informative (not blatantly commercial) articles about the benefits of new geophysical developments, services and technologies, especially from our valued advertisers. Special Issues provide particular focus for the benefits of advertiser’s products.
