Aims and scope
Journal of Geoscience and Climate Change is an international refereed journal publishes quarterly online open access by KMF. The journal opens a new era for the publication of geoscientific research articles, covering geology, geophysics, geochemistry, paleontology, structural geology, mineralogy, petrology, stratigraphy, sedimentology, environmental geology, economic geology, petroleum geology, hydrogeology, remote sensing and planetary geology. It accepts high-quality original research or review papers dealing with all aspects of the nature and origin of igneous and metamorphic rocks. We publish four types of articles:
Research Articles include both empirical studies of a particular research question and new theoretical or philosophical approaches.
Curriculum and Instruction papers describe new teaching materials or methods and provide evidence for their effectiveness.
Literature Reviews synthesize and evaluate the published literature on a topic within geoscience education research or practice.
Commentaries provide a critical or alternative viewpoint on a key issue or provide insight into an important development that is of broad interest to geoscience educators or researchers.
