Frontiers launches 2 new open-access journals: Frontiers in Earth Science and Frontiers in Environmental Science

Frontiers announces today the launch of two new open-access journals: Frontiers in Earth Science and Frontiers in Environmental Science. An innovative open-access publisher, Frontiers is part of the Nature Publishing Group family.

Manuscripts submitted to specialty sections in "Frontiers in" journals are peer reviewed by specialty associate and review editors. Specialty Chief Editors oversee subject areas across the "Frontiers in" journals. The initial specialty sections open for submissions to Frontiers in Earth Science are: Atmospheric Science, Geomagnetism and Paleomagnetism, Hydrosphere, Interdisciplinary Climate Studies, Paleontology, Structural Geology and Tectonics, Quaternary Science, Geomorphology and Paleoenvironment and Structural Geology and Tectonics. Further specialty sections will be added soon.

"Frontiers expands the notion of publishing by adding network possibilities and impact metrics to evaluate individual articles," said Prof. Luis Gimeno Specialty Chief Editor for Atmospheric Science, Frontiers in Earth Science, and professor of Atmospheric Physics at the University of Vigo, Spain. "Atmospheric sciences will bring to Frontiers studies about all processes that occur in the atmosphere, including studies related to observations and data assimilation".

Initially, Frontiers in Environmental Science will offer specialty sections in: Agroecology and Land Use Systems, Air Pollution, Atmospheric Science, Environmental Informatics, Environmental Toxicology, Green and Environmental Chemistry, Groundwater Resources and Management, Interdisciplinary Climate Studies, Microbiotechnology, Ecotoxicology and Bioremediation, Soil Processes, and Wastewater Management.

"Climate issues are still very much at the forefront of earth and environmental sciences", said Prof. Martin Beniston, Specialty Chief Editor of Interdisciplinary Climate Studies, Frontiers in Environmental Science, and professor at the University of Geneva. "There is still a wide gap between the climate science messages that the scientific community wishes to convey and the way these messages are received and used by stakeholders and the general public. Frontiers will be a key medium to provide cutting-edge research results in interdisciplinary climate science."

Frontiers publishes all articles under a Creative Commons Attribution license (CC-BY), which allows users to share, copy and distribute a work, while at the same time crediting the authors of the article.
