Swiss Journal of Geosciences was first published in 1888 as Eclogae Geologicae Helvetiae and was renamed in 2007. The electronic archive starting with volume 1 in 1888 can be found in the  ETH Zürich digital library. The electronic archive from 2004 to present can be found in SpringerLink. From 2020 the journal publishes Open Access.

Aims and scope

The Swiss Journal of Geosciences is an international fully Open Access peer-reviewed journal and publishes original research and review articles, with a particular focus on the evolution of the Tethys realm and the Alpine/Himalayan orogen. By consolidating the former Eclogae Geologicae Helvetiae and Swiss Bulletin of Mineralogy and Petrology, this international journal covers all disciplines of the solid Earth Sciences, including their practical applications.

The journal gives preference to articles that are of wide interest to the international research community, while at the same time recognising the importance of documenting high-quality geoscientific data in a regional context, including the occasional publication of maps.

Thematic "Special Issues” such as the “Alpine Workshop Special Issues” are published at irregular intervals. Contact us if you have a proposal for a Special Issue.

The Swiss Journal of Geosciences has editorial waivers available for outstanding contributions and review articles from researchers who lack funding for fully OA publication. Members of the Swiss Geological Society benefit from a reduced APC fee of EUR 800.

An international editorial team as well as guest editors guarantee that all regular articles as well as articles in Special Issues are peer-reviewed and meet the highest standards.
