Frontiers reaches 6.4 on Journal Impact Factors
A picture has emerged over the last couple of decades of Earth structure, composition, and dynamics, which requires an integrated understanding of processes at many spatial and temporal scales. It has also required knowledge and interdisciplinary connections between Earth structure as illuminated by seismology and gravity, composition and rheology as shown by experimental and computational mineral physics and the coupled dynamics and evolution of lithosphere, mantle, and core.
We aim to make this geophysical section a special repository of forefront research aimed at advancing an integrated vision of the Earth focused on global and regional problems. We welcome contributions from all geophysical fields, from rock mechanics, which can provide the bridge between brittle failure and long-term deformation; from experimental and computational mineral physics, lithosphere and mantle dynamics, including short time-scales and geodesy; seismology centered on Earth structure and geo and paleo-magnetism for both core dynamics and the geo and paleo-magnetic record

Solid Earth Geophysics 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 Solid Earth Geophysics, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Solid Earth Geophysics 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 Earth Science.
