The Leading Edge article submission guidelines

If you have an article that you would like to submit to The Leading Edge for publication, contact Steve Brown , Managing Editor

The Leading Edge

Read the latest issue of The Leading Edge in the SEG Digital Library  or via our Digital Edition.

The Leading Edge (TLE) publishes articles covering all aspects of applied geophysics, and other disciplines that impact it, in a style that appeals to a broad readership. TLE is a gateway publication, introducing new geophysical theory, instrumentation, innovative concepts, and established practices to scientists in a wide range of geoscience disciplines. The magazine publishes these articles before these areas have undergone enough field testing for rigorous peer review. Most material for TLE emphasizes practical applications presented in a manner that minimizes mathematical theory.

Papers that target the special section of a specific issue should be submitted to the guest editor in charge of the special section (see the editorial calendar). All articles should adhere to TLE guidelines:
