Research Categories


The main topics published are as follows 1 Results of scientific and technical research in seismology as well as papers in geophysics tectonics and engineering related to earthquake studies 2 Papers presenting differences of scientific points of views in the field of seismology 3 The current status and significant advances in earthquakerelated science 4 Comments and discussions concerning seismology and earthquake studies. Four columns are presented in Earthquake Science research papers research notes academic discussion and reviews. It is intended for those scientists engineers and teachers and students in universities and colleges engaged in seismology and geophysics in China and abroad.Earthquake Science has become an important core journal in seismology and geophysics in China. To provide information on important topics several special issues are published each year. These special issues are organized by wellknown specialists such as Professors Yaolin Shi Chunyong Wang Xiaodong Song Fenglin Niu Jiadong Qian Sidao Ni Xiaofei Chen Yongshun John Chen etc. The topics of these special issues cover a wide range of seismological and geophysical research fields. In 2008 a disastrous earthquake with a magnitude of 8.0 struck Wenchuan Sichuan China. More than nine hundred thousand people were killed or missing. This earthquake provided opportunities for seismologists to study the earthquake source process as well as many earthquakerelated issues. Earthquake Science organized a timely special issue aimed at the hotspot issues related to the Wenchuan earthquake.

Impact Factor

Impact factor (IF) is a scientometric factor based on the yearly average number of citations on articles published by a particular journal in the last two years. A journal impact factor is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. Find out more: What is a good impact factor?

III. Other Science Influence Indicators

Any impact factor or scientometric indicator alone will not give you the full picture of a science journal. There are also other factors such as H-Index, Self-Citation Ratio, SJR, SNIP, etc. Researchers may also consider the practical aspect of a journal such as publication fees, acceptance rate, review speed.

Earthquake Science

The h-index is an author-level metric that attempts to measure both the productivity and citation impact of the publications of a scientist or scholar. The index is based on the set of the scientist's most cited papers and the number of citations that they have received in other publications
