Special Issue on 

Seismo Electromagnetics and Earthquake Prediction


Earthquake (EQ) prediction is still very essential for the mitigation of the loss of human lives and economical losses. The research during the last few decades yielded that non-seismological phenomena, mainly electromagnetic (+geochemical) effects do take place prior to an EQ, and those seismo-electromagnetic phenomena are considered to be very promising for short-term EQ prediction. An enormous progress is going on in this field of seismo-electromagnetics, and especially the mechanism of lithosphere-atmosphere- ionosphere coupling is a challenging topic. Further studies will be highly required to discuss the applicability of pre-EQ signals toward EQ prediction.The goal of this special issue is to provide a platform for scientists and academicians all over the world to promote, share, and discuss various new issues and developments in this area of seismo electromagnetics and earthquake prediction.


In this special issue, we invite front-line researchers and authors to submit original research and review articles that explore seismo electromagnetics and earthquake prediction. In this special issue, potential topics include, but are not limited to:



  • General discussion on EQ preparation process and the physics of pre-EQ signals
  • Statistical analyses of EQ precursors
  • Theory, modeling, laboratory experiments, computational simulation for generation and propagation of pre-EQ signals and their connection with seismic cycle
  • Multi-parameter observations, detection, and validation of pre-EQ signals
  • The latest developments in EQ predictability and prospective testing associated with major EQs
  • Other related topics on EQ preparation processes and EQ prediction



Authors should read over the journal’s For Authors carefully before submission. Prospective authors should submit an electronic copy of their complete manuscript through the journal’s Paper Submission System.


Please kindly specify the Special Issue” under your manuscript title. The research field “Special Issue –Seismo Electromagnetics and Earthquake Prediction” should be selected during your submission.
