Call for Papers Announcement

Call for Papers for a PAGEOPH Topical Volume on “Continental Earthquakes: Physics, Simulation, and Data Science”

We invite submissions for a special issue of Pure and Applied Geophysics (PAGEOPH), entitled “Continental Earthquakes: Physics, Simulation, and Data Science”. We aim to gather works of experts in seismology, geodesy, and geodynamics, as well as data science on all aspects related to continental earthquakes, from the physics of earthquake preparation and occurrence to the simulation and data science related to the assessment of time-dependent seismic hazard. While the issue will mainly include the works presented in the International Conference for the Decade Memory of the Wenchuan Earthquake with the 4th International Conference on Continental Earthquakes (The 4th ICCE) and the 12th General Assembly of the Asian Seismological Commission (ASC) held in Chengdu, China during May 12~14, 2008 (, we also encourage other submissions that are relevant to the study of continental earthquakes, including physics of earthquakes and faulting, predictive modeling of earthquake cycle, and comparative studies of inter-plate and intra-plate earthquakes. In particular we encourage works that make use of the state-of-the-art science and technology, especially data science and information technology, in the study of the predictability of major to great continental earthquakes.
Please submit your paper by going to: New authors will have to register first, then login as an author and select “Report-Top.Vol. Continental Earthquakes: Physics, Simulations, Data Science” as the article type. Instructions for authors and a submission tutorial can be found at: There is no page limit per manuscript, but the length of the article should be justified by its content.
The submission deadline is September 1, 2018. All submissions will be subject to the PAGEOPH peer review process. Papers will be published individually online shortly after being accepted.  The combined manuscripts will be published both as a topical issue of the journal PAGEOPH and Book Reprint.
