Geophysics articles, generally more than 325 per year in six issues, cover the entire spectrum of geophysical methods, including seismology, potential fields, electromagnetics, and borehole measurements. Geophysics, a bimonthly, provides theoretical and mathematical tools needed to reproduce depicted work, encouraging further development and research.

Geophysics papers, drawn from industry and academia, undergo a rigorous peer-review process to validate the described methods and conclusions and ensure the highest editorial and production quality. Geophysics editors strongly encourage the use of real data, including actual case histories, to highlight current technology and tutorials to stimulate ideas. Some issues feature a section of solicited papers on a particular subject of current interest. Recent special sections focused on seismic anisotropy, subsalt exploration and development, and microseismic monitoring.

The PDF format of each Geophysics paper is the official version of record.

Subject Coverage

Anisotropy, borehole geophysics and rock properties, electrical and electromagnetic methods, engineering and environmental geophysics, geophysical software and algorithms, gravity exploration methods, ground-penetrating radar, interdisciplinary studies, magnetic exploration methods, mining geophysics, passive seismic methods, poroelasticity, reservoir geophysics, seismic amplitude interpretation, seismic attributes and pattern recognition, seismic data acquisition, seismic interferometry, seismic inversion, seismic migration, seismic modeling and wave propagation, seismic velocity/statics, and signal processing.

According to the Science Edition of Clarivate Analytics' InCites Journal Citation Reports, the journal's 2018 impact factor is 2.793.
