Margarita Segou, a seismologist at BGS, has been a member of Geophysical Journal International (GJI)’s editorial board since 2019 and will begin her new role as editor-in-chief from 1 March 2024.

Margarita has conducted research in institutes and universities in the USA and Europe, and has worked at BGS for the past nine years. She is well known for her work in earthquake physics and the development of testable, physics-based forecasts in evolving seismic sequences.

Since January 2024, GJI has been fully open access, which enables everyone to have free, immediate, and unrestricted access to the high-quality research published within it. GJI’s mission is to promote the understanding of the Earth’s internal structure and physical properties, the processes operating in, on and around it, and its evolution. It is published by Oxford University Press on behalf of the Royal Astronomical Society and the Deutsche Geophysikalische Gesellschaft.

It’s with humility and enthusiasm that I assume the role of editor-in-chief of GJI, a journal of the Royal Astronomical Society. GJI is one of the most long-lived journals in earth sciences, with uninterrupted publication over 100 years, and I’m honoured to lead the editorial team at GJI in the open access era.

Margarita Segou, BGS Seismologist.
