Aim and Scope


Welcome to Geosphere, the Geological Society of America’s online-only journal. Geosphere’s primary mission is simply to publish high-quality geoscience research results that are international in scope. We also want to encourage innovative approaches to scientific publication, such as the extensive use of color, animations, and interactivity.

Geosphere publishes papers from the entire spectrum of the geosciences. The traditional “research paper” is analogous to papers in the Geological Society of America Bulletin. The short “research note” is to some degree analogous to papers in Geology, but we welcome even shorter contributions. Education is a major part of the mission of GSA, and thus, we welcome “educational contributions.”

Acceptance Rate


The acceptance rate/percentage of any academic journal/conference depends upon many parameters. Some of the critical parameters are listed below.

  • The demand or interest of researchers/scientists in publishing in a specific Journal/Conference.
  • Peer review complexity and timeline.
  • The mix of unsolicited and invited submissions.
  • The time it takes from manuscript submission to final publication.
  • And Many More.

It is essential to understand that the acceptance rate/rejection rate of papers varies among journals. Some Journals considers all the manuscripts submissions as a basis of acceptance rate computation. On the other hand, few consider the only manuscripts sent for peer review or few even not bother about the accurate maintenance of total submissions. Hence, it can provide a rough estimation only.

The best way to find out the acceptance rate is to reach out to the associated editor or to check the official website of the Journal/Conference.
