Welcome to GEMS: AGU's submission system

Geophysical Research Letters publishes high-impact, innovative, and timely research on major scientific advances in all the major geoscience disciplines. Papers are communications-length articles and should have broad and immediate implications in their discipline or across the geosciences. GRL maintains the fastest turn-around of all high-impact publications in the geosciences and works closely with authors to ensure broad visibility of top papers.

Editor in Chief: Noah Diffenbaugh

Add your ORCID to GEMS and always have this identifier link you and all of your work. AGU encourages all authors and reviewers to create and add an Open Researcher and Contributor Identifier (ORCID) to their account. It’s easy: just update your profile on an existing account or add ORCID when you create your account. Learn more about ORCID.

ORCIDS will now be required for all corresponding authors and strongly encouraged for coauthors.
AGU officially joins with a number other publishers in a commitment to include the ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) for authors of all papers published in 2016. See statement https://eos.org/agu-news/agu-opens-its-journals-to-author-identifiers

All AGU journal content from 1997 to 24 months ago is freely available online. Your published paper will become fully open 24-months after publication.
