A Forward by the Editor
Dale Rucker

The past two years of editing the Journal of Environmental and Engineering Geophysics (JEEG) has certainly been enlightening. First, I get to see cutting edge research related to instrumentation, applications, algorithms, and interpretation before anyone else. In 2018 alone, we had 116 unique submissions with 38 published articles. That is a lot of science to wade through each week and I learn a great deal about where the science is heading. I also try not to be a gatekeeper and allow just about anything to go out for review (to the annoyance of the associate editors) as long as it fits scope and has some basic structure as an article on near surface geophysics. Granted, some articles from countries that are not native English speakers may take up to four rounds of reviews before they can be published. That brings me to my second point of how a very poor quality initial submission can be turned into a top notch article through the careful reviews and editing done by all those handling the manuscript. Sometimes it takes the eyes of several people to get the concept across in a readable manner. And for the record, all articles that have some level of acceptance has to go through revision. I have yet to see a paper to be accepted ‘as is’ for the initial submission. Even in my own career, I have yet to see this happen for me.

In case you may have missed them, below are a few of the most cited articles from the past few years according to Google Scholar. I view these articles as pushing the boundaries of science and include subjects of ground penetrating radar by Babcock et al. (2016), Diamanti et al. (2017), Ma et al. (2016), Simms et al. (2017); electrical resistivity tomography and induced polarization by G¨undo˘gdu et al. (2017), Parsekian et al. (2017), Swarzenski et al. (2016), and Zarif et al. (2017); electromagnetics by Vignoli et al. (2017), Gurk and Tezkan (2016), Ansch¨utz et al. (2017), and Wynn et al. (2016); and acoustic methods by Castongia et al. (2017) and Chen and Zelt (2016, 2017). Please, check them out and email the authors to ask questions or congratulate them for their thoughtful consideration of the subject. 

Lastly, as this is the first online-only version of JEEG, I would be interested in hearing whether the change has affected how you view the journal and accessibility. We want to make sure that the work inside our pages are easily available, citable, and most importantly interesting.
