"Journal of Geophysical Research" is the premier journal of the American Geophysical Union. It is often called by its initials, "JGR". AGU states that "JGR" "publishes original scientific research on the physical, chemical,and biological processes that contribute to the understanding of the Earth, Sun, and solar system and all of their environments and components".

The AGU provides subscribers access to electronic versions of nearly all papers published in the "JGR" from 1994 to the present. In addition, since 1994, the AGU has provided online e-supplements to "JGR" articles, allowing data sets to be disseminated and archived along with electronic versions of the published articles.

History

"JGR" was entitled "Terrestrial Magnetism" at its founding by the AGU's president Louis A. Bauer, in 1896. It was entitled "Terrestrial Magnetism and Atmospheric Electricity" from 1899-1948.

In 1980, "JGR" was split into three specialized sections, each published separately: "JGR—Space Physics" (Section A), "JGR—Solid Earth" (Section B), and "JGR—Oceans" (Section C). Subsequently, additional sections have been added: "JGR—Atmospheres" (Section D) in 1984, "JGR—Planets" (Section E) in 1991, "JGR—Earth Surface" (Section F) in 2003, and "JGR—Biogeosciences" (Section G) in 2005.

Sections

The seven sections are published separately. Their scopes are as follows.
* "JGR—Atmospheres" includes physics and chemistry of the atmosphere, as well as the atmospheric-biospheric, lithospheric, or hydrospheric interface.
* "JGR—Biogeosciences" focuses on the interface between biology and the geosciences and attempts to understand the functions of the Earth system across multiple spatial and temporal scales.
* "JGR—Earth Surface" focuses on the physical, chemical and biological processes that affect the form and function of the surface of the solid Earth over all temporal and spatial scales, including fluvial, eolian, and coastal sediment transport; hillslope mass movements; glacial and periglacial activity; weathering and pedogenesis; surface manifestations of volcanism and tectonism.
* "JGR—Oceans" covers physical, biological, and chemical oceanography.
* "JGR—Planets" covers the geology, geophysics, geochemistry, atmospheres, biology, and dynamics of the planets, satellites, asteroids, rings, comets, and meteorites; planetary origins; and planetary detection. Studies of the Earth are included when they concern exogenic effects or the comparison of the Earth to other planets.
* "JGR—Solid Earth" focuses on the physics and chemistry of the solid Earth and the liquid core of the Earth, geomagnetism, paleomagnetism, marine geology/geophysics, chemistry and physics of minerals, rocks, volcanology, seismology, geodesy, gravity, and tectonophysics.
* "JGR—Space Physics" covers aeronomy and magnetospheric physics, planetary atmospheres and magnetospheres, interplanetary and external solar physics, cosmic rays, and heliospheric physics.

Citations

Beginning January 1, 2002, the American Geophysical Union began distributing all of its publications online with papers provided in both HTML and PDF formats. Officially, these electronic versions, rather than the print versions, of the journals are the publications of record. Sequential page numbers were eliminated and a digital object identifier (DOI) was assigned to each paper for citation purposes. After some controversy about citations using a DOI, the AGU introduced a new citation number effective August 13 2002 to supplement the DOIs. The citation format was revised again in 2004.
