Geophysical Research Letters (GRL) aims to provide rapid publication of forefront research that has an immediate impact on the science community. The journal features articles from a broad range of disciplines and our reviewers help in evaluating both the scientific content (Categories 1-4) and the presentation quality (Categories A-C) to determine if a submitted manuscript meets GRL standards. The final decision on a manuscript is made solely by the Editor using the expertise of several reviewers and the established criteria. Read this Eos article for tips on writing a solid peer review.
We welcome and will pass on to authors any specific suggestions that materially improve the quality of a manuscript. Reviewer comments are conveyed anonymously to the authors unless you indicate that you wish to make your identity known.
GRL highlights several manuscripts in each issue. If you feel a manuscript is particularly exciting and deserves to be highlighted, please include a short note about its importance in your review.
GRL uses science and presentation categories to evaluate manuscripts. Please read the following criteria to help decide which categories most accurately describe the manuscript you’re reviewing.
The manuscript meets one or more of the following criteria. If the manuscript falls in Category 1, please give sufficient detail as to which of the below points are applicable and why.
The manuscript is potentially Category 1 but significant clarification/revision is needed. If possible, please specify the significant revisions that might allow this manuscript to meet Category 1 criteria. For example, the manuscript presents:
The paper is publishable in the refereed literature but is unlikely to become a Category 1 paper. It is:
This paper is not publishable in an AGU journal.
Category A manuscripts should meet each of the following criteria:
The paper is potentially a Category A manuscript with revision. If you select Category B, you should give explicit direction as to which sections/features need revision, and extension or reduction, for example:
The manuscript cannot readily be revised by the authors into Category A. The following may be true:
