EAGE Journals

In addition to First Break, EAGE has five peer-reviewed journals: Geophysical Prospecting, Near Surface Geophysics, Basin Research, Petroleum Geoscience and Geoenergy. Access to these journals is available to our members as part of their individual membership benefits. Companies and organizations can also gain access through our corporate subscription options.

EAGE’s peer-reviewed journals are published in an online-only format. This is a proactive move towards reducing the environmental impact caused by the production and distribution of printed journal copies and will allow the journals to invest in further innovation, digital development and sustainability measures. Published articles will continue to be disseminated quickly through the journals’ broad network of indexing services, including ISI, MEDLINE and Scopus. Articles will also continue to be discoverable through popular search engines such as Google.

There is possibility to print-on-demand of Geophysical Prospecting, Near Surface Geophysics and Basin Research. This is only valid on whole volumes, not individual issues and any customer who subscribed for a journal(s) can get the discount code 90% for print-on-demand options. You can send your requests and questions to Petroleum Geoscience and Geoenergy can be print-on-demand in the future.

Near Surface Geophysics

Coverage: 2003-now
Impact Factor:
6 issues per year

Near Surface Geophysics is an international journal for the publication of research and development in geophysics applied to the near surface. The emphasis lies on shallow land and marine geophysical investigations addressing challenges in geology, hydrogeology, environmental science, civil and geotechnical engineering, agriculture, archaeology, mining and mineral exploration, geohazards, the influence of climate change, exploration, and storage of energy (incl. geothermal, wind and other renewables), and near-surface soil- and rock-physical properties. Geophysical and geoscientific case histories with innovative use of geophysical techniques are welcome, which may include improvements in instrumentation, measurements, data acquisition and processing, modelling, inversion, interpretation, integration, project management, and multidisciplinary use. The papers should also be understandable to those who use geophysical data but are not necessarily geophysicists.

Near Surface Geophysics is indexed/abstracted in the Current Contents/ Physical, Chemical & Earth Sciences, ISI Alerting Service and Science Citation Index Expanded.

Petroleum Geoscience

Coverage: 1995-now
Impact Factor:
4 issues per year

Petroleum Geoscience transcends disciplinary boundaries and publishes a balanced mix of articles covering exploration, exploitation, appraisal, development and enhancement of sub-surface hydrocarbon resources and carbon repositories. The integration of disciplines in an applied context, whether for fluid production, carbon storage or related geoenergy applications, is a particular strength of the journal. Articles on enhancing exploration efficiency, lowering technological and environmental risk, and improving hydrocarbon recovery communicate the latest developments in sub-surface geoscience to a wide readership.

The journal is published by EAGE and the Geological Society of London.

Geophysical Prospecting

Coverage: 1953-now
Impact Factor: 2.6
Frequency: 9 issues per year

Geophysical Prospecting publishes the best in primary research on the science of geophysics as it applies to the exploration, evaluation and extraction of earth resources. Drawing heavily on contributions from researchers in the oil and mineral exploration industries, the journal has a very practical slant. Although the journal provides a valuable forum for communication among workers in these fields, it is also ideally suited to researchers in academic geophysics.

The journal published by Wiley on behalf of EAGE.

Basin Research

Coverage: 1988-now
Impact Factor: 3.2
Frequency: 6 issues per year

Basin Research is an international journal which aims to publish original, high impact research papers on sedimentary basin systems. We view integrated, interdisciplinary research as being essential for the advancement of the subject area; therefore, we do not seek manuscripts focused purely on sedimentology, structural geology, or geophysics that have a natural home in specialist journals. Rather, we seek manuscripts that treat sedimentary basins as multi-component systems that require a multi-faceted approach to advance our understanding of their development. During deposition and subsidence we are concerned with large-scale geodynamic processes, heat flow, fluid flow, strain distribution, seismic and sequence stratigraphy, modelling, burial and inversion histories.

In addition, we view the development of the source area, in terms of drainage networks, climate, erosion, denudation and sediment routing systems as vital to sedimentary basin systems. The underpinning requirement is that a contribution should be of interest to earth scientists of more than one discipline.

Basin Research is published by Wiley in association with the International Association of Sedimentologists and the European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers.

Basin Research on EarthDoc


Coverage: starting in 2023
2 issues per year

Geoenergy is a new co-owned journal of the Geological Society and the European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE), launching in January 2023.
Continuing the mission of its sister journal, Petroleum Geoscience, Geoenergy focuses on the publication of timely and topical research in subsurface geoscience, critical for this new era of sustainable energy.

The journal is published by EAGE and the Geological Society of London.

Siddharth Misra


Prof Dr Siddharth Misra’s research focuses on improving subsurface characterization and prospect evaluation for the exploration of hydrocarbons, minerals and water resources.

His major contribution is in the theory of electromagnetic responses of geological formations to various charge polarization phenomena. The theory has enabled him to introduce a multi-frequency electromagnetic log-inversion technique to remove dielectric effects for improved estimation of hydrocarbon pore volume.
