Aims & Scope

The Innovation Geoscience is a sister journal of The Innovation. It will be an Open Access journal, aiming to publish the first issue in June 2023. The Innovation Geoscience aims to boost geoscience research and promote collaboration with other disciplines and the sustainable development of human society. We focus on the evolution of the Earth and planets, the origin of life and its habitability, and the harmonious co-existence between human and nature.

The Innovation Geoscience welcomes submissions from all fields of geoscience and from any source, including but not limited to:

1. Atmosphere and Oceanography
2. Geography
3. Ecology
4. Environmental Science
5. Geochemistry
6. Geology
7. Geophysics and Space Physics
8. GeoscienceX: Multidisciplinary Collaboration

Inaugural Words

The Innovation Geoscience: An international journal of Earth and beyond

The Earth is the only planet known to support life in the universe. The exploration and exploitation of the Earth is being driven by human needs, thus supporting the development of human society. However, the rapid industrialization and unsustainable consumption of Earth's resources during the past two centuries have resulted in severe environmental degradation and biodiversity loss. As a result of human activities, the world has already begun to feel the effects of climate change, geological disasters, lack of natural resources, and ecological disruption. Are we heading towards self-destruction due to the depletion of resources and deterioration of the living environment? Can we achieve a high level of sustainable development through a better understanding of the Earth-human interactions and their consequences?

The intricate interplay between Earth's many subsystems and their effects on human societies and vice-versa cannot be fully understood within the framework of a single scientific discipline. Earth System Science, an interdisciplinary endeavor that views the Earth as a single complex system driven by external forcings and numerous internal feedbacks among its interactive components, is the key to addressing the planetary environmental crises we face today. But how can scientific and technological advances from physics, chemistry, geology, biology, materials science and computer science be integrated to deeply study the Earth as a complex dynamic system?

Throughout human history, from the Paleolithicto the Renaissance and from foraging to the Industrial Revolution, curiosity has been the engine of innovation, pushing the boundaries of science and technology that has allowed us to explore the depths of the ocean, the bowels of the Earth, and outer space, but there are still many mysteries to unravel. Our understanding of the Earth system is continuously improving as we gain more observations of Earth and other planets in the solar system. At the same time, the revolution in information technology has ushered in a new era of big data and artificial intelligence in geoscience. Global challenges in the Earth system are being addressed through interdisciplinary, international cooperation and integration.

There is rising optimism about achieving sustainable development in the long run.Because of this, it is more important than ever to provide a single platform for promoting and disseminating studies that advance Earth System Science. In response to this urgent need, we are launching a new journal entitled "The Innovation Geoscience" to establish a collaborative, inclusive, and open platform for Earth scientists from around the global.Focusing on the evolution of the Earth and planets, the origin and evolution of life and its habitability, and the harmonious coexistence between humans and nature, it aims to boost geoscience research and promotecollaboration with other disciplines and the sustainable development of human society. The Innovation Geoscience is devoted to be one of the top journals of earth science and more.

Let us see the unseen and change the unchanged.

For Authors

All submissions are initially evaluated in depth by the scientific editors. Papers that do not conform to the general criteria for publication will be returned to the authors without detailed review. Otherwise, manuscripts will be sent to at least two reviewers who have agreed in advance to assess the paper rapidly. The editors will make every effort to reach decisions on these papers within 3 weeks of the submission date. If revisions are a condition of publication, generally 4 weeks are allowed for revisions, and only one revised version of the paper is considered. Evaluations of conceptual advance and significance are made on the basis of the literature available on the day of final decision, not the day of submission. Accepted papers will be published online ahead of the issue as soon as possible and will appear in an issue within 2 months of acceptance. Any major changes after acceptance are subject to review and may delay publication.

Fast-Track Review
If circumstances so warrant, authors may request a fast-track review of a paper in the cover letter. At the editor’s discretion, a fast-track review will be undertaken to expedite manuscripts that deserve rapid review and publication. Such review would be completed in less than 1 week.


Editorial Policies
Manuscripts are considered with the understanding that no part of the work has been published previously in print or electronic format and that the paper is not under consideration by another publication or electronic medium. All in-press or submitted works pertinent to the manuscript under consideration(including those cited in the manuscript under consideration) must accompany the submission. Related manuscripts that have been submitted elsewhere during the period of revision must accompany revised manuscripts. Failure to provide copies of related manuscripts under consideration elsewhere may delay the review process and may be grounds for rejection.
