The Leading Edge (TLE) publishes articles covering all aspects of applied geophysics, and other disciplines that impact it, in a style that appeals to a broad readership. TLE is a gateway publication, introducing new geophysical theory, instrumentation, innovative concepts, and established practices to scientists in a wide range of geoscience disciplines. The magazine publishes these articles before these areas have undergone enough field testing for rigorous peer review. Most material for TLE emphasizes practical applications presented in a manner that minimizes mathematical theory.
Papers that target the special section of a specific issue should be submitted to the guest editor in charge of the special section (see the editorial calendar). All articles should adhere to TLE guidelines:
