Geophysical Journal International (GJI) is one of the world's leading peer-reviewed research journals in solid-Earth geophysics, publishing the results of research on the earth's internal structure, physical properties, evolution and processes covering all aspects of theoretical, computational and observational geophysics.


Subjects covered include:

  • earthquake and controlled-source seismology, tides, the Earth's gravitational field in relation to its shape, deep interior, crustal structure, stress and isostasy;

  • palaeomagnetism and rock magnetism and their applications to geomagnetism, internal processes and geotectonics;
  • heat flow, electromagnetism, rheology and volcanology;
  • geophysics applied to the structure and evolution or rifts, ridges, trenches, mountains, continents and oceans.

See here for a full description of topics covered in GJI.
