Aims and Scope

Geochemical Perspectives is an internationally peer-reviewed open access journal that publishes invited contributions from leading scientists in the field of geochemistry.

Each issue of Geochemical Perspectives presents a single article with an in-depth view on the past, present and future of a field of geochemistry, seen through the eyes of a highly respected member of our community. The articles combine science and history of the field’s development and the scientist’s opinions about future directions. We expect personal glimpses into the author’s scientific life, how ideas were generated, pitfalls and triumphs along the way, and how ideas were adopted to carry our field further. Geochemical Perspectives articles are intended for the entire geochemical community, not for experts. They are not reviews or monographs or text books. They go beyond the current state of the art, providing opinions about future directions and impact in the field.

Publisher Information

Geochemical Perspectives is published by the European Association of Geochemistry (EAG), a society that was officially established in 1985 with the goal of promoting geochemistry internationally and in particular providing a forum for the presentation of geochemistry, exchange of ideas, publications and recognition of scientific excellence.

The EAG is a non-profit organization registered in France. The Business Office is located in Houten, Netherlands.
