AMSTERDAM, June 19, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Elsevier , a world-leading provider of scientific, technical and medical
information products and services, is pleased to announce the launch of a new
open access journal, GeoResJ.

With the launch of GeoResJ, Elsevier's earth and planetary science journals
portfolio has its first open access only journal. The journal aims to provide
a forum for rapid publication of top research within the entire earth science
field. The journal will be co-edited by six Executive Editors, each covering a
different discipline, including geophysics, geochemistry, space science,
volcanology, atmospheric sciences and paleontology.

"I am excited and proud to be a part of the launch of GeoResJ offering
researchers a new venue for rapid and open access publishing of their work,"
said Professor Lyatt Jaeglé of the University of Washington who will serve as
one of the Executive Editors. "With the journal being open access, published
research will be available for all to read anytime, anywhere, an appealing
prospect for most scholars," Professor Simon George of Macquarie University,
also an Executive Editor, added.

" GeoResJ adds to Elsevier's existing earth and planetary science journals
which already offer authors an open access option, including renowned journals
such as Earth and Planetary Science Letters and Quaternary Science Reviews ,"
said Clare Lehane, Executive Publisher at Elsevier. "Authors now have more
choice to determine which journal best suits their needs in terms of scope and
access."

GeoResJ will publish its first four volumes in 2014. Any articles accepted for
publication in 2013 will be available online on ScienceDirect. For more
