Geosphere is GSA’s ambitious, online-only publication that addresses the growing need for timely publication of research results, data, software, and educational developments in ways that cannot be addressed by traditional formats. The journal’s rigorously peer-reviewed, high-quality research papers target an international audience in all geoscience fields. Its innovative format encourages extensive use of color, animations, interactivity, and oversize figures (maps, cross sections, etc.), and provides easy access to resources such as GIS databases, data archives, and modeling results. Geosphere’s broad scope and variety of contributions is a refreshing addition to traditional journals.
