GSA is soliciting applications and nominations for science coeditors for the journals Geology and Lithosphere with four-year terms beginning 1 January 2017. Geology has been ranked by the Journal Citation Reports (JCR) as the #1 geology journal for the ninth year in a row, and up-and-coming Lithosphere’s impact factor has increased 4 out of the 5 years it has been ranked by the JCR.

Science editor duties include: ensuring stringent peer review and expeditious processing of submissions; making final acceptance or rejection decisions after considering recommendations of reviewers; and maintaining excellent content through active solicitation of diverse and definitive manuscripts. A successful editor will have:
