Journal of Volcanology and Seismology publishes theoretical and experimental studies, communications, and reports on volcanic, seismic, geodynamic, and magmatic processes occurring in the areas of island arcs and other active regions of the Earth. In particular, the journal looks at present-day land and submarine volcanic activity; Neogene–Quaternary volcanism; mechanisms of plutonic activity; the geochemistry of volcanic and postvolcanic processes; geothermal systems in volcanic regions; and seismological monitoring. In addition, the journal surveys earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, and techniques for predicting them.

PEER REVIEW

Journal of Volcanology and Seismology is a peer reviewed journal. We use a single blind peer review format. Our team of reviewers includes 45 experts, both internal and external (75%). The average period from submission to first decision in 2019 was 45 days, and that from first decision to acceptance was 90 days. The rejection rate for submitted manuscripts in 2019 was 10%. 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appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal Knowledge.

  • Examines current problems of volcanology and seismology, including recent continental and sea-bed volcanic activity, products of volcanic eruptions, structure and "roots" of volcanoes and more
  • Essential coverage of volcanic and seismic processes in the Kuril-Kamchatka arc
  • Traces its origins to Bulletin of Volcanological Stations, in the late 1970s
