All Earth

Special Issue Call for Papers


To celebrate Earth Day, and the one year anniversary of All Earth, we have launched a series of sustainability-oriented Special Issues. Led by our Editorial Board members, these collections showcase the important role of Geoscience in Sustainable Development.

Natural Resources – Energy Transition for a Sustainable Future

Deadline: 30 April 2023

This special issue investigates the geological occurrence of natural resources that are used to achieve energy transition goals (rare earth elements, critical metals, & new economy minerals).

Big Earth Data

A decolonial turn in the study of Earth and its history…

Deadline: 30 April 2023

This special issue seeks to examine the history of coloniality and its impact on the Earth Sciences.

remote sensing

Remote Sensing for Global Environmental Change

Deadline: 31 December 2022

This special issue focuses on the advances in remote sensing technology and the applications of remotely sensed observations for the assessment of environmental changes associated with the Earth system.

natural resources

Sustainable Natural Resource Management in the framework of the Water-Energy-Food-Ecosystem (WEFE) Nexus

Deadline: 30 April 2023

This special issue focuses on natural resource mapping, evaluation and exploitation, monitoring, and related risk-related aspects based on modelling with geoscientific data.


Natural Hazards, Disaster Risk Reduction and Society

Deadline: 30 April 2023

This special issue examines the study and characterization of Natural Hazards also in view of the possible future scenarios induced by Climate Change.

More about the journal

All Earth (formerly Geodinamica Acta) publishes interdisciplinary research relevant to all fields of Earth Science, including cross- and multi-disciplinary studies. The journal welcomes all sound, reproducible research relating to the atmosphere, biosphere, hydrosphere, lithosphere, cryosphere, the terrestrial earth, earth observations, planetary change, and human interactions with natural systems and processes. There are no constraints on themes, provided research meets the scope of one of the journal’s six Sections (below).

The journal strives to understand the processes, systems, and challenges of our home planet, and its land, air, ice reservoirs, and water which sustain all life. All Earth aims to bring together research exploring the complex individual and interacting components and forces of the earth, as well as investigating anthropogenic impacts and interactions. As an open access journal, All Earth has a mission to enhance the scientific understanding of the earth’s processes and connections, and how this science can help translate the latest original research into evidence-based policy advice and decision-making to meet the global challenges of the 21st century, in particular the global policy priorities represented by the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

All Earth consists of six distinct but interrelated Sections, each dealing with its own broadly defined field of Earth Science. Each Section is overseen by a Section Editor and Editorial Board who are experts in relevant disciplines. It is anticipated that authors may identify multiple suitable Sections for their research due to the interconnected nature of Earth Sciences, however at the point of submission authors will be asked to select their preferred Section.

  • Atmosphere: all aspects of atmospheric fundamentals and applications, including but not limited to climatology and climate change, meteorology, atmospheric chemistry, and interactions with aquatic and terrestrial systems and human activities.
  • Biosphere: earth systems and processes that support life, including terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, biogeochemical cycles, landscape dynamics and land use change.
  • Hydrosphere: all aspects of the hydrogeology, chemistry, and physics of the hydrosphere and its liquid, solid, and vapour components, including marine and freshwater environments, hydrology, cryology and glaciology, water quality, water resources management, natural and anthropogenically originated hazards, and engineering.
  • Lithosphere: all aspects of the solid earth, including the areas of geology, geochemistry, geophysics, and studies relating to the earth’s processes and forces.
  • Planetary Change & Paleosciences: changes in earth systems and processes. Planetary Change crosses many subjects and the Section will interplay with various other Sections within All Earth, with a focus on understanding change and its impacts, now and into the future. Paleosciences focuses on past changes to the earth and its systems, across such fields as paleoclimatology, paleoceanography, paleobotany, and paleontology.
  • Earth Observations: all aspects of earth observation systems, data, methods, modelling, and applications in environmental changes, human-nature interactions, and societal impacts.

All Earth is a fully open access journal. This means all submitted articles will, if accepted, be available for anyone to read, anywhere, at any time, immediately on publication.

All articles will be made freely and permanently available online through gold open access publication.
