Editor's Foreword

Well, it’s here - my last Editor’s Foreword after four years of being the editor in chief of the Journal of Environmental and Engineering Geophysics. My tenure will expire at the end of 2020, at which time two new co-editors will take the reins and continue moving forward in expanding the journal’s prestige, outreach, and influence on the near surface geophysical community across the globe. I feel very honored to have held the title of editor and to have worked to improve the journal in every way that I could.  

When I started this position, a main focus was on timely publication of articles, starting with getting the first review completed within 30 days. On average, the 365 papers submitted between mid-2016 through the end of 2019, had the first review completed in 34 days thanks to the time volunteered by associate editors and reviewers. I did miss my goal but can say that 34 days is a notable improvement that carried over to more authors' willingness to trust JEEG with their manuscripts. Submissions grew nearly every year, with 2018 having the most at 116 unique papers (i.e., not counting revisions). As submissions grew, so did the impact factor, which now stands at 3.3 (https://www. 64002&tip sid&clean 0). With these analytics, I have learned a valuable lesson, in that working tirelessly to improve the condition of the journal, while at times seemed thankless, will have a positive impact. There was no instant gratification that we may expect from social media posts. The improvement was slow (4 years!) and required a lot of work. And it was all worth it.

In January, Aleksandra Varnavina and Afshin Aghayan will be the new co-editors in chief. I have no doubt that they will do a fantastic job and continue the growth of the journal. I look forward to continued reading of ground breaking science and interesting case studies in their care.
