Journal subject areas

The journal subject areas are defined by the following index terms below. These terms represent the keywords to be chosen for assignment of submitted manuscripts to individual editors:

  • geoscience education;
  • geoscience engagement;
  • geoscience policy;
  • history and philosophy of geosciences;
  • open geoscience;
  • citizen science.

Whilst all of these subject areas fall within the remit of science communication, GC distinguishes geoscience education as research that is pedagogical in nature, and which takes place in either a formal or informal environment, whereas public engagement is defined as any research which considers engaging the general public.
