[U05-07] General aim of the journal publication by JpGU
Keywords: Journal, publication, PEPS, Impact factor
Following our recent inclusion in the Scopus database, we are very pleased to be able to tell you that the Japan Geoscience Union’s open-access e-journal Progress in Earth and Planetary Science (PEPS) has been accepted for indexing in the Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE) database, one of the major databases of the Clarivate Analytics (formerly Thompson Reuters) Web of Science. We expect that our first Impact Factor will be announced next summer. Probably the value is just the middle between 2 and 3. We acknowledge all of you to submit the manuscripts and to cite the articles published in PEP. We would like to establish the first grade of our international journal of PEPS with all of you and to publish your valuable results in future. At the moment we can provide discount rate of submission fee for review papers and invited research papers.
Also JpGU would like to promote Japanese community of Earth and Planetary science to send important and valuable research results to global community. Therefore it has been making an effort to advertise activities by Japanese international journals at AGU/EGU/AOGS booths.
