History of EGRSE journal – Exploration Geophysics, Remote Sensing and Environment

EGRSE Journal has a long and rich history. Publishing of articles related to professional geophysical problems tends back to the journal named Applied Geophysics issued as Proceedings. It was issued by company Applied Geophysics in locality Brno- Řečkovice, now non-existing yet.

History of development of the journal is following:

  • By the year 1993 was issued as Proceedings of Geological Sciences. Applied Geophysics, ISSN 0036-5319.
  • From 1994 up to 2004 it was issued yet in the printed form as the Journal EGRSE; Exploration Geophysics, Remote Sensing and Environment (Print), ISSN 1211-359X.
  • From 2005 to present this journal is issued in the electronic form as CD-ROM. EGRSE; Exploration Geophysics, Remote Sensing and Environment (CD-ROM), ISSN 1803-1447.
  • Since 2007, the magazine has also been published on the CAAG website (full texts of articles); ISSN 1805-2266.

The publication of a professional journal for the Central European Region in an agreement with the neighbouring countries it is the basic reason of the reviewed Journal EGRSE. Its level is comparable with other European journals in the branches of applied geophysics, remote sensing and the environment. Since 1994, the Journal EGRSE has been published once or twice in a year in English or Czech/Slovak languages. Since 2010, one issue has been presented each year by Czech/Slovak written articles and the second one by only English written articles. The EGRSE is the only magazine of its kind in the Czech and Slovak Republics. The journal presents the results of work of research institutes, universities and geophysical companies and contributes to increasing the professional level of the field. Not only Czech geophysicists publish in the journal but also the colleagues from abroad. Since 2017, individual articles are assigned DOI numbers (***-**-****).

The journal is published by the Association with a significant financial contribution of the Council of Scientific Societies of the Czech Republic. The EGRSE represents us well at the international level in Europe and America. It is usually sent to the largest conferences organized by EAGE and SEG.
