Journal of Geodynamics - ISSN 0264-3707
Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 0.994 Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP):
SNIP measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field.
SCImago Journal Rank (SJR): 1.136 SCImago Journal Rank (SJR):
SJR is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same. SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and a qualitative measure of the journal’s impact.
Impact Factor: 1.855 (2019) Impact Factor:
The Impact Factor measures the average number of citations received in a particular year by papers published in the journal during the two preceding years.

5 Year Impact Factor: 2.357 (2019) Five-Year Impact Factor:
To calculate the five year Impact Factor, citations are counted in 2016 to the previous five years and divided by the source items published in the previous five years.

The Journal of Geodynamics is an international and interdisciplinary forum for the publication of results and discussions of Solid Earth research covering the entire multitude of scientific methods aimed at understanding deep and shallow processes in various tectonic settings and acting at different time- and length-scales. The Journal publishes results based on a multitude of research disciplines, including geophysics, geodesy, geochemistry, geology, and based on field observations, laboratory experiments, and numerical simulations.

The Journal invites original research papers, including 'letters', as well as topical reviews with focus on geodynamics, including:

  • Plate tectonic processes: driving mechanisms, paleo-geodynamics, numerical and analogue modeling in compressional and extensional tectonic settings in continents and oceans, including all stages of the Wilson cycle, and basin dynamics;
  • Mantle geodynamics: mantle convection, hot spots and plumes, mantle transition zone, and secular evolution of the Earth;
  • Geophysical geodynamics: crust - mantle and lithosphere - asthenosphere interaction based on seismic, gravity, magnetic, and thermal observation and interpretation with links to global and regional geodynamic processes in different tectonic settings;
  • Stress field and deformation: geodetic observations of horizontal and vertical crustal movements; seismic, electrical and magnetic anisotropy; seismicity, tsunami hazards and impacts;
  • Crustal and mantle rheology: laboratory experiments and numerical simulations; physical properties of rocks; water in the mantle;
  • Geodynamics of magma transport: geophysical observations and numerical simulations of magma transport and emplacement; modelling of volcanic eruptions, geodynamic control on evolution of magmatic passive margins, large igneous provinces and dyke swarms;
  • Geodynamics of topographic change: role of deep processes on large-scale regional evolution of topography, including dynamic topography, and sea level variation;
  • Geodynamics of large ice sheets: ice basal melting, glacial isostasy, ice-seismicity;
  • Geodynamic control on ore and hydrocarbon mineral deposits.
