Call for papers for Spec Iss: “New Perspectives in the Definition/Evaluation of Seismic Hazard through Analysis of the Environmental Effects Induced by Earthquakes”

A Special Issue in Geosciences will focus on New Perspectives in the Definition/Evaluation of Seismic Hazard through Analysis of the Environmental Effects Induced by Earthquakes. The call for papers is now open. This Special Issue aims to collect all contributions that using different methodologies can integrate new data produced with multi-disciplinary and innovative methods. These methodologies are essential for the identification and characterization of seismically active areas, and for the development of new hazard models, obtained using different survey techniques. The contributions related to seismic-induced effects in volcanic areas (currently not well-examined) will also be particularly appreciated, since in such areas even high-energy earthquakes can induce both surface faulting and secondary effects, as recently observed for the volcano-tectonic earthquake of Md = 4 that occurred on August 21, 2017 in the Island of Ischia (Campania, Southern Italy).

The deadline for manuscript submission is 30 April 2019 (but an extension can be granted, if necessary). For more details please visit the website:

Geosciences is fully open access. Open access (unlimited and free access by readers) increases publicity and promotes more frequent citations, as indicated by several studies. Open access is supported by the authors and their institutes. The article processing charges (APC) for accepted papers are CHF 550 (Please note that for papers submitted after 31 December 2018 an APC of 850 CHF applies). You may be entitled to a discount if you have previously received a discount code or if your institute is participating in the MDPI Institutional Open Access Program (IOAP), for more information see: http://www.mdpi.com/about/ioap.

For further details on the submission process, please see the instructions for authors on the journal website (http://www.mdpi.com/journal/geosciences/instructions).
