Frontiers reaches 6.4 on Journal Impact Factors
This specialty section of Frontiers in Earth Science aims to rapidly publish new research findings, methods, review, and opinion articles on all aspects of Geomagnetism and Paleomagnetism. This important and diverse field in the Earth sciences provides a unique perspective of global and regional tectonics, crustal and deep Earth processes, and the timing of events in Earth history. Geomagnetism and Paleomagnetism welcomes new findings in paleomagnetism; paleomagnetic measurements used to study global tectonics, regional tectonics, and geological processes; as well as paleomagnetic and paleointensity measurements of geomagnetic field behavior in the distant past. Also welcome are new magnetostratigraphy and rock magnetic cyclostratigraphy studies that are used to assign time to sedimentary rock sequences and allow more precise timing and correlation of events in Earth history. Paleosecular variation studies that provide timing and correlation of geologic and environmental events, ancient geomagnetic field behavior, and rock magnetic studies are also included in this specialty. We are interested in the use of rock magnetism to understand the genesis of the paleomagnetism of rocks and to evaluate its accuracy, as well as to understand recent and ancient environmental and paleoclimate processes.
This specialty section also welcomes manuscripts in Geomagnetism, including new models of geomagnetic field generation, observations of the recent geomagnetic field to constrain models of its generation, findings about the characteristics of the geomagnetic field in space that can be used to understand processes and properties of the magnetosphere, as well as electromagnetic induction and aeromagnetic and satellite measurement of magnetic anomalies to understand crustal structure and to probe deep into the solid Earth. Manuscripts about the magnetic fields of other planets are also welcome.

Geomagnetism and Paleomagnetism welcomes submissions of the following article types: Correction, Data Report, Editorial, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Protocols, Review and Technology Report.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Geomagnetism and Paleomagnetism, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Geomagnetism and Paleomagnetism will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Astronomy and Space Sciences and Earth Science.
