Impact Score* 5.5
The primary areas of discussion in the journal are Seismology, Petrology, Fault (geology), Tectonics and Lithosphere. The study on Seismology presented in Solid Earth intersects with subjects under the field of Crust. The journal explores issues in Petrology which can be linked to other research areas like Sedimentary rock and Shear zone.
The presentations focused mostly on Tectonics in an attempt to further explore topics in Paleontology. It addresses concerns in Lithosphere which are intertwined with other disciplines, such as Geophysics and Mantle (geology). Many of the studies tackled connect Subduction with a similar field of study like Slab.
The journal publications aim to foster the development of research in Agronomy, Hydrology, Seismology, Soil carbon and Soil water. Issues in Hydrology were discussed in the published articles, taking into consideration concepts from other disciplines like Soil science, Vegetation and Land use. The Seismology research tackled in the journal publications is interrelated with Crust which concerns subjects like Rift.
The journal was organized to reinforce research efforts on Seismology, Fault (geology), Petrology, Tectonics and Crust. Issues in Seismology were discussed, taking into consideration concepts from other disciplines like Magnitude (mathematics) and Borehole. Anticline, Stress field and Strain partitioning are some topics wherein Fault (geology) research discussed in it have an impact.
It holds forums on Petrology that merges themes from other disciplines such as Seismic tomography, Subduction, Shear zone and Facies. The Tectonics research presented in Solid Earth explores the relationship between Deformation (mechanics) and the closely related topic of Kinematics and Sedimentary rock. The study of Lithosphere and how it intertwines with concepts under Mantle (geology), Magmatism, Plate tectonics, Massif and Slab were explored in the presented Crust research.
A key indicator for each journal is its effectiveness in reaching other researchers with the papers published at that venue.
The chart below presents the interquartile range (first quartile 25%, median 50% and third quartile 75%) of the number of citations of articles over time.
The top authors publishing in Solid Earth (based on the number of publications) are:
The overall trend for top authors publishing in this journal is outlined below. The chart shows the number of publications at each edition of the journal for top authors.
Only papers with recognized affiliations are considered
The top affiliations publishing in Solid Earth (based on the number of publications) are:
The overall trend for top affiliations publishing in this journal is outlined below. The chart shows the number of publications at each edition of the journal for top affiliations.
The publication chance index shows the ratio of articles published by the best research institutions in the journal edition to all articles published within that journal. The best research institutions were selected based on the largest number of articles published during all editions of the journal.
The chart below presents the percentage ratio of articles from top institutions (based on their ranking of total papers).Top affiliations were grouped by their rank into the following tiers: top 1-10, top 11-20, top 21-50, and top 51+. Only articles with a recognized affiliation are considered.
During the most recent 2021 edition, 6.36% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 37.86% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing in the journal. Another 17.48% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 21.36% of all publications and 23.30% were from other institutions.
A very common phenomenon observed among researchers publishing scientific articles is the intentional selection of journals they have already attended in the past. In particular, it is worth analyzing the case when the authors participate in the same journal from year to year.
The Returning Authors Index presented below illustrates the ratio of authors who participated in both a given as well as the previous edition of the journal in relation to all participants in a given year.
The graph below shows the Returning Institution Index, illustrating the ratio of institutions that participated in both a given and the previous edition of the conference in relation to all affiliations present in a given year.
Our experience to innovation index was created to show a cross-section of the experience level of authors publishing in a journal. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a journal, grouped by total number of publications throughout their academic career (P) and the total number of citations of these publications ever received (C).
The group intervals were selected empirically to best show the diversity of the authors' experiences, their labels were selected as a convenience, not as judgment. The authors were divided into the following groups:
The chart below illustrates experience levels of first authors in cases of publications with multiple authors.
