Geomorphica’s scope includes a wide range of topics in geomorphology. Below we provide a non-exhaustive list of topics that fall within the scope of Geomorphica. 

  • Geomorphology, morphodynamics, bio-geomorphology and landscape evolution of the full range of environments on planet Earth: Marine, Coastal, Aeolian, Fluvial, Hillslopes and Mountains
  • Geomorphology of all climate zones: Temperate, Glacial and periglacial, Arid and semi-arid landscapes, Tropics
  • All Earth surface processes that affect morphology through Erosion-Sedimentation,  Karst, Tectonics, Climate Change, Seismic and Volcanic Activity, but also Wildfire, Weathering, Soil Formation, Biological effects, and the Critical Zone
  • Planetary Morphology on rocky and icy bodies in the Solar system in comparison of morphological and processual analogs on Earth
  • Spatiotemporal scales from individual particles to global morphology and microseconds to billions of years
  • Technical advances: remote sensing, mapping, numerical modelling, laboratory/scale experiments, dating, mathematical, theoretical and conceptual
  • Morphological responses to anthropogenic modification: Hazards, Flood Defences, Restoration, Water and Sediment Management, Socio-Morphological Interactions, Geoheritage
  • Local, Traditional and Indigenous Knowledge, and Inclusivity in Geomorphology


Some of these topics sit on the interface with the scopes of Volcanica, Tektonika, Seismica, Sedimentologika and other sister Diamond Open Access Journals, and some manuscripts may be more suitable for these journals. Perception of Geomorphica’s scope may evolve through time as these interfaces become clearer. Final decisions regarding suitability for publication lie with the journal’s Editorial Board. If you are unsure whether your article is appropriate for submission in Geomorphica, we recommend contacting the Editor-in-Chief.
