Best Earth Science Journals

The ranking of leading journals for Earth Science was created by Research.com, one of the prominent platforms for Earth Science research supplying credible data on scientific output since 2014.

The position in the ranking is based on a unique bibliometric score created by Research.com which is calculated by means of the approximated discipline index (D-index) as well as the quantity of top scientists who have endorsed the journal within the last five previous years. Show more

Please that this year's edition is based on information collected for 2017, 2018, 2019, 2020, 2021.

The ranking contains Impact Score values collected on 06-12-2021.

The system for scoring journals involved evaluating as much as 2,165 journals which were chosen after meticulous inspection and rigorous examination of more than 59,456 scientific documents published in the last five years by 5,913 leading and well-renowned researchers in the area of Earth Science.

More data on the methodology for establishing the score can be examined on our our methodology page.
