Journals

Welcome to BSSA and SRL – the Society’s world-class journals that share the best in basic and applied research, databases, tools and public policy.

The Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America (BSSA) is the premier journal of advanced research in earthquake seismology and related disciplines.

The Seismological Research Letters (SRL) is a unique journal—the first to serve as a general forum for informal communication among seismologists, as well as between seismologists and those nonspecialists interested in seismology and related disciplines.
