AGU Advances

AGU Advances: Premier home of influential Earth and space science research in full-length format

AGU Advances is a Gold Open Access journal that publishes high-impact, novel, and timely scientific advances across the Earth and space sciences and related interdisciplinary topics. Papers are expected to have broad and immediate implications in their discipline and also be of interest to researchers in other Earth science disciplines, the broader science community and the public.

AGU Advances will publish original research articles of exceptional significance. Papers chosen for AGU Advances should represent the top few papers published each year within the given topic. AGU Advances will rely on its editorial board for timely, expert assessment and will send out a selection of submissions for rapid peer review.

The editorial board will be formed from the AGU College of Fellows, including at least one from each section (primary or secondary for those sections with few fellows) to cover all Earth and space science and related interdisciplinary topics.

Published papers will receive additional attention and publicity by AGU and many will be accompanied by commentaries and/or additional highlights aimed at elaborating and explaining the research to a broader audience.

AGU’s Executive Director/CEO Chris McEntee said of AGU Advances upon its announcement:

“Over the last century, Earth and space science has advanced greatly to address the challenges and opportunities society has faced. AGU too has advanced during that time, working diligently to provide our community with the highest quality, most well-respected journals in which to share their scientific knowledge. Today, as we prepare to mark AGU’s Centennial, society depends on Earth and space science more than ever to ensure our ability to address the challenges and opportunities of the future. AGU Advances will help us to build on the legacy and impact created by Geophysical Research Letters, AGU’s leading letters-length journal, and our 19 other prestigious journals, as we accelerate scientific discovery and the exchange of knowledge, and work to inform those inside and beyond our community about the critical contributions Earth and space science makes to improving lives around the world.”
