  • Examines a wide diversity of geophysical instruments
  • Encompasses metrology, calibration and performance analysis of instruments and different seismometric channels, signal detection and noise suppression
  • Provides a base for interaction among engineers and scientists working in geosciences
  • Founded in 1961 as a journal of the Russian Academy of Sciences

Seismic Instruments  is a journal devoted to the description of geophysical instruments used in seismic research. In addition to covering the actual instruments for registering seismic waves, substantial room is devoted to solving instrumental-methodological problems of geophysical monitoring, applying various methods that are used to search for earthquake precursors, to studying earthquake nucleation processes and to monitoring natural and technogenous processes. The description of the construction, working elements, and technical characteristics of the instruments, as well as some results of implementation of the instruments and interpretation of the results are given. Attention is paid to seismic monitoring data and earthquake catalog quality analysis.
Seismic Instruments  includes translation of selected articles published in Seismicheskie Pribory  and Voprosy Inzhenernoi Seismologii.

PEER REVIEW

Seismic Instruments is a peer reviewed journal. We use a double blind peer review format. Our team of reviewers includes 36 reviewers, both internal and external (43%). The average period from submission to first decision in 2017 was 63 days, and that from first decision to acceptance was 35 days. The rejection rate for submitted manuscripts in 2017 was 19%. The final decision on the acceptance of an article for publication is made by the Editorial Board.

Any invited reviewer who feels unqualified or unable to review the manuscript due to the conflict of interests should promptly notify the editors and decline the invitation. Reviewers should formulate their statements clearly in a sound and reasoned way so that authors can use reviewer’s arguments to improve the manuscript. Personal criticism of the authors must be avoided. Reviewers should indicate in a review (i) any relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors, (ii) anything that has been reported in previous publications and not given appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal knowledge.
