Journal of Environmental & Engineering Geophysics (JEEG)



The JEEG (ISSN 1083-1363) is the peer-reviewed journal of the Environmental and Engineering Geophysical Society (EEGS). JEEG welcomes manuscripts on new developments in near-surface geophysics applied to environmental, engineering, and mining issues, as well as novel near-surface geophysics case histories and descriptions of new hardware aimed at the near-surface geophysics community.  JEEG's SCIMAGO rating is 3.3, its highest since inception.  Submit your article to Manuscript Submission Site.  

EEGS members (the first or corresponding author needs to be an EEGS Member) are charged a flat rate per article of $100 (USD) and an excess page charge (for each page beyond 10 journal pages) of $50.  The color figure fee of $100 per color figure is assessed for those requesting figures to appear in color online.  Non-members will be charged a flat rate per article of $500 and an excess page charge (for each page beyond 10 journal pages) of $100.  Color figure fees of $100 per color figure will be charged for those requesting figures to appear in color online.  These fees will be assessed upon acceptance of the article for publication.

Article Types
JEEG offers two options for publication: a Near Surface Geophysical Letter (NSGL) and a full research article. The difference between the two is the length of the article and the general time to publication. NSGLs are typically 1000-3000 words with up to four figures. Full articles are in excess of 3000 words and there are no limits to figures. However, a general rule of thumb is to have 1 to 2 times the number of figures per 1000 words. A 5000 word article can accommodate about 5 to 10 figures. The NSGL can also make its way through the publication system faster as it takes less time to review.

Color Figures in Manuscripts
The costs for printing figures in color will be passed on to the authors.  A completed order form and payment must be submitted to the EEGS business office no later than 10 days after the first galley proof corrections are submitted.  Online Color Figure(s) Order Form
