American Geophysical Union and Wiley Launch New Open Access Journal, Earth and Space Science
Marking AGU’s second new open access journal in the last 12 months, Earth Space and Science is the only journal that reflects the expansive range of science represented by AGU’s 62,000 members, including all of the Earth, planetary, and space sciences, and related fields in environmental science, geoengineering, space engineering, and biogeochemistry.

Earth and Space Science joins a prestigious portfolio of research publications that are governed by AGU’s rigorous peer review process. This includes the highly ranked Geophysical Research Letters and Journal of Geophysical Research – Atmospheres, and Earth’s Future—an innovative open access publication that features trans-disciplinary research, editorials, and essays emphasizing the Earth as an interactive, evolving system under the influence of the human enterprise—which was successfully launched in late 2013.
The journal will publish articles under the Creative Commons Attribution License enabling authors to be fully compliant with open access requirements of funding organizations where applicable. The publication fee will be competitive with those of other broad open access journals.
A search is now underway for Earth and Space Science’s inaugural editor in chief, who will lead a team of preeminent academic editors who are closely connected to their communities.
