History

The first issue of the Estonian Journal of Earth Sciences appeared in March 2007. The journal is a continuation of the Proceedings of the Estonian Academy of Sciences, which has been published since 1952, with Geology as a separate series of the Proceedings since 1978.
Geology was internationally peer reviewed and abstracted or indexed in several journals or databases and during the last decades played an important role in making East Baltic geology more visible in the world. The ties of succession between the two journals are stressed by continued volume numeration. Despite its name, the Estonian Journal of Earth Sciences is a journal of the Estonian Academy of Sciences, yet slightly differing from common academic proceedings.
With the change of the name of the journal the geological community of Estonia wishes to emphasize its support to an increasing trend in Earth sciences, which can be formulated as strengthening of interaction and complexity of disciplines known as Earth system sciences. However, the evolution of Earth systems, especially those highlighted by the science programme of the International Year of Planet Earth, results from the global and regional components of interacting processes. Both these aspects of Earth sciences will also be the topic of the new journal.
Proceeding from such a general policy, the journal will publish papers covering the whole field of Earth sciences, including, besides different geological sensu lato disciplines, also geography and oceanography having certain connection with North Europe and the Baltic area in particular.
Changes in subject matter seem to be relatively modest, because already the profile of the previous Geology series was rather wide. More importantly, along with some subject additions, the Editorial Board of the journal was altered considerably in accordance with the modernized science profile.
The most practical changes are the increased format and two-column layout, providing more space for text and greater flexibility in accommodating the tables and illustrations
