Copyright and Access Policy
To contact Geochemistry, Geophysics, Geosystems: email Gfirstname.lastname@example.org.
Authors will transfer copyright to the publisher (to the extent allowed
The publisher will grant back to authors the right to reproduce their work,
in part or in whole, for any non-commercial purpose, providing that proper
attribution to G3 is made. This specifically includes posting
of publications to the authors' personal or institutional web sites.
The copyright policy will also explicitly allow the reproduction of published
materials by instructors and students in universities and primary and secondary
schools for educational purposes, without payment of royalty.
It is the intent of the founders to assure that relevant contributions
published in G3 can be accessed through the authorized web sites
of selected scientific organizations, such as GERM (the Geochemical Earth
Reference Model Initiative), whose purpose is to facilitate the dissemination
of information to the scientific community. Connecting the peer-reviewed
literature with the information services of sites like GERM is a critical
functionality of the proposed journal. The publishers expect to meet this
goal by providing seamless and unrestricted links for users from these
sites to specific online G3 contributions, or by granting permission
to post selected items from G3 on these sites.
Commercial use will normally only be allowed upon payment of an appropriate
royalty and, if reasonably available, with the concurrence of the author.
