Editorial and Events Calendar

Each issue of our six-part annual series focuses on a region and topic that fascinates the geosciences community right now. We time these special features to correspond with major international conferences, ensuring re-enforcement of marketing efforts during events that you attend and top-of-mind audience relevance despite your absence if you are not exhibiting. Magazine content is not limited to editorial focus and will include topics relevant to all conferences attended.

In addition to the print edition of the magazine being available as a free PDF download, all print articles are also reformatted and uploaded as individual digital articles. These articles are then promoted for a short time on the homepage, in the weekly bulletin and across social media. The articles are then stored in our popular online archive where they can be accessed and shared indefinitely. When possible we also make amendments to the titles and subtitles to better equip the articles with SEO keywords/phrases without changing the main content of the article. This is done in order to maximise the exposure of each topic discussed and access a relevant organic audience reached via search engines.

Distribution During the COVID-19 Pandemic

The main distribution of the magazine is through the post and downloads of the PDF. However, as you know, we distribute thousands of copies at conferences during the year. Please note: for the conferences that are postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak, copies of the issue designed for that event will be held back and distributed at the conference at the new date to ensure your advertorial & editorial content are seen by your intended audience. We will also focus additional distribution efforts online.

The Web App includes advertising integrated into the browsing and reading process of the user. Adverts are placed on the homepage, within the listing of articles and within articles themselves. Ads can include a wide range of interactivity and will resize according to the device the reader is using.

Homepage adverts benefit from static placement and constant front page presence.

Article adverts share exposure equally across our archive as articles are accessed by readers via direct shares and organic searches.

We also offer advertisement space in our weekly bulletin, currently sent to 7,000+ subscribers. Logo sponsorship also available.

To ensure content remains at the forefront of our publication, we limit online advertising to a maximum of 7 companies at any one time.

We will then advise on the many options we have to offer to accommodate your marketing needs.
