Faculty and students in the geosciences produce fascinating research on many diverse topics ranging from geochemical analyses of soils and sediments to spatial analyses of urban poverty. If you publish in the geosciences, you probably want as many people to have access to your research as possible. The best way to provide the greatest amount of access to your scholarly work is to publish in an open access journal. See the Directory of Open Access Journals for a list of open access Geography and Geology journals.
A few Georgia State University Department of Geosciences faculty members have published in open access journals. Follow the example of these Geosciences faculty members and make your research more accessible:
