Progress in Earth and Planetary Science first Impact Factor to be announced in summer 2018

We are very pleased to announce that Progress in Earth and Planetary Science (PEPS) has been accepted for indexing in the Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE) database, one of the major databases of the Clarivate Analytics (formerly Thompson Reuters) Web of Science. We expect that our first Impact Factor will be announced in summer 2018.
We would like to thank everyone for supporting PEPS and contributing to this success in our continuing mission to play a major role in the future of global geosciences.

Progress in Earth and Planetary Science accepted for indexing in Scopus

We are pleased to announce that Progress in Earth and Planetary Science (PEPS) will be included in the abstract and citation database Scopus.

Aims and scope

Progress in Earth and Planetary Science (PEPS), a peer-reviewed open access e-journal, was launched by the Japan Geoscience Union (JpGU) in 2014. This international journal is devoted to high-quality original articles, reviews and papers with full data attached in the research fields of space and planetary sciences, atmospheric and hydrospheric sciences, human geosciences, solid earth sciences, and biogeosciences. PEPS promotes excellent review articles and welcomes articles with electronic attachments including videos, animations, and large original data files. PEPS also encourages papers with full data attached: papers with full data attached are scientific articles that preserve the full detailed raw research data and metadata which were gathered in their preparation and make these data freely available to the research community for further analysis.
