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.  Submit your article to Manuscript Submission Site.

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.

Author Awards 
JEEG offers an opportunity for published authors to win the yearly Best Paper Award in honor of Alan Witten.  The Best Paper Award is decided by the EEGS board of directors after a recommendation from the current JEEG editor.  The award is presented yearly at SAGEEP.
