Reminder:  Digital, Online Only JEEG in 2019

The EEGS Board of Directors voted to offer a digital Journal of Environmental & Engineering Geophysics (JEEG) to all members and subscribers.  Beginning with the March, 2019 issue, members and subscribers will access the electronic Journal online only.

JEEG Editor Dale Rucker said the move to an exclusively digital JEEG will have a minimal effect on the publication's content.  JEEG's impact factor, a measure of the yearly average number of citations to recent articles, has risen to 1.36 from .73 in 2016.

You'll notice other changes to JEEG as well - be sure to watch this space for further information on our new JEEG!
