A Forward by the Editor

There is good news to report his quarter! The impact factor for JEEG has risen significantly for 2019 as reported by both Scopus ( and SCIMAGO ( journal rankings, where values are 2.77 and 3.33, respectively. I have made note of this in past editorials and it is important from the standpoint that scientists are finding value in what we print. The impact factor is a reflection on all at JEEG, from the editorial board, to the authors, reviewers, and readers. 

So I say thank you to all that has helped in making JEEG a significant contribution to the area of near surface geophysics.

Another topic I would like to touch upon is the new manuscript submission site, Peer Track ( We switched from the old AllenTrack to Peer Track approximately six months ago and I have been maintaining both systems while revisions are processed in the older system. I believe at the moment we are down to one remaining manuscript in AllenTrack and after that I will no longer accept any more revisions. Peer Track has posed challenges to the editorial board and authors alike. There is a steep learning curve to ensuring manuscripts are submitted, pass technical checks, sent to an associate editor, reviewed, and decision sent to the author. I have even lost associate editors over this fact, as everyone is doing this voluntarily and they don't have the time to learn all of the steps. Even after the six months, I am still not completely comfortable with the system and I am sure there are much easier ways to do simple tasks than what I have been using. Regardless, we are going to make it work and I appreciate everyone's patience in the matter. We are still in good standing with regards to the total number of submissions for the year, as number 38 came in on June 11 (for reference in 2019, manuscript number 38 was submitted on May 2, 2019). Just email me with any questions you may have and we'll work it out to ensure timely publication of your article.

Lastly, a comment about the current climate of world events that include a raging pandemic, social unrest, and economic uncertainty. It is my duty as editor in chief to ensure that everyone gets fair treatment from a scientific point of view. If you meet the minimum standards for article submission and can pass peer review, your work will be welcomed in JEEG. From my part, I will ensure comment tone is civil, respectful, and constructive. I will also offer help and guidance when sought. We are a relatively small community (that is growing), and have to help one another whenever an opportunity presents itself.
