Journal of Geodynamics - ISSN 0264-3707
Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 1.178 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): 0.921 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: 1.806 (2016) 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: 2.394 (2016) 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 in geodetic, geophysical, geological and geochemical geodynamics, with special emphasis on the large scale processes involved.

Papers addressing interdisciplinary aspects, analyses, results and interpretation will receive special attention. Original research papers, including 'letters', as well as topical reviews are invited on:
• Earth rotation
• Rheology and mineral properties of the deep earth, physical properties of rocks and their dependence on pressure, temperature and chemical composition
• Upper mantle - lower mantle; lithosphere - asthenosphere
• Mantle convection, hot spots and plumes, heat flow and the thermo-mechanical evolution of the earth
• Plate kinematics, plate tectonics and plate dynamics, driving mechanisms
• Stress field; horizontal and vertical crustal movements
• Evolution of continents and oceans, including the formation and destruction of oceanic lithosphere, orogenic processes and basin evolution
• Crust-mantle interaction, chemical recycling
• Sea surface and ocean bottom topography, including variations of sea level
• Dynamic interpretation and modelling of potential fields, including isostasy, glacial isostasy
• Magma formation, differentiation, transport and emplacement, including modelling of volcanic eruptions
• Dynamic consequences of natural events, including source dynamics, seismic modelling, seismo-tectonics, modelling of earthquakes, impacts
• Data aquisition and analysis for geodynamics, including the use of SLR, VLBI, GPS, etc
• Integrated models and non-linear processes.

The emphasis lies on endogenic and also interacting exogenic processes and their geological effects in the widest sense, as well as on results obtained from geophysical, geodetic and geological measurements and analytical techniques applied to deduce them.
