Modern geochemistry often focuses on determining how elements are distributed between different reservoirs that make up the Earth, the Solar System or beyond. However, its ultimate goal is identification and in-depth understanding of the mechanisms by which these chemical reservoirs form and evolve, thus improving our understanding of how the Earth works as a geochemical system.Read More
Modern geochemistry often focuses on determining how elements are distributed between different reservoirs that make up the Earth, the Solar System or beyond. However, its ultimate goal is identification and in-depth understanding of the mechanisms by which these chemical reservoirs form and evolve, thus improving our understanding of how the Earth works as a geochemical system. Indeed, the flux of chemical species between these reservoirs – both in the past and at present, as well as in the future – provides an important constraint for modeling the past and predicting the future.
Do you have a geochemical research paper that you wish to place in a new style of electronic journal, where contributions are reviewed online in a collaborative forum, are published quickly and with open access? Consider publishing in Geochemistry!
We seek to publish papers that focus on geochemical and biogeochemical processes:
a) which occur over a wide range of pressure, temperature and Eh conditions, and/or
b) which result in differentiation of chemical reservoirs on a wide range of spatial and temporal scales, and/or
c) which influence fluxes of chemical species between different reservoirs, in the past, at present and into the future.
We seek to publish papers that deal with:
d) major and minor elements and their phase associations,
e) isotope ratio variations, and
f) new techniques that provide improved understanding of geochemical and biogeochemical processes.
We aim to cover a wide range of Earth reservoirs, from the hydrosphere to crust and mantle to core. We also solicit papers from extra‐terrestrial environments that provide perspective on Earth’s reservoirs and processes.

Geochemistry welcomes submissions of the following article types: Book Review, Correction, Data Report, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis & Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Protocols, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge and Technology Report.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Geochemistry, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Geochemistry will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Chemistry and Earth Science.
