Springer is starting an open-access publication of the journal Earth, Planets and Space (EPS) on behalf of five academic societies in Japan.
Earth, Planets and Space covers scientific articles in earth and planetary sciences, and in particular geomagnetism, aeronomy, space science, seismology, volcanology, geodesy and planetology. The journal also publishes articles in new and interdisciplinary subjects, including instrumentations.
EPS is the official journal of The Society of Geomagnetism and Earth, Planetary and Space Sciences; The Seismological Society of Japan; The Volcanological Society of Japan; The Geodetic Society of Japan; and The Japanese Society for Planetary Sciences. The long-running journal was formerly published by Terrapub under a traditional subscription model.
