The world’s leading peer-reviewed journals of seismology, The Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America (BSSA) and Seismological Research Letters (SRL), are available to institutions with a one-year subscription. The Society’s world-class journals share the best in basic and applied research, databases, tools and public policy.
The Bulletin of the Seismological Society of America (BSSA) is the primary English-language journal of advanced research in seismology and related disciplines. It first appeared in 1911 and was issued on a quarterly basis until 1963. Since 1963, BSSA has appeared bimonthly (February, April, June, August, October, December). Subscriptions are sold only by the annual volume (January to December).
The main body of contents is composed of scientific papers on the various aspects of seismology, including: investigation of specific earthquakes, theoretical and observational studies of seismic waves; inverse methods for determining the structure of the earth or the dynamics of the earthquake source; seismometry; earthquake hazard and risk estimation; seismotectonics; earthquake engineering; paleoseismology; and tsunami studies. In addition to the full-length papers, each issue contains a section of “Short Notes” for comments on previously published items or for brief, topical contributions.

Seismological Research Letters (SRL) is published bimonthly by the Seismological Society of America. 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. SRL includes articles on topics of broad seismological and earthquake engineering interest, opinion pieces on current seismological topics, news and notes about seismology and seismologists in the U.S. and internationally, earthquake reports, the Electronic Seismologist and EduQuakes columns, strong-motion network reports, equipment news and letters to the editor. A section for the Eastern Section of the Seismological Society of America focuses on intracontinental and eastern North American seismology. Abstracts of papers to be presented at the Annual Meeting of the Seismological Society of America and at the annual meeting of the SSA Eastern Section also appear in SRL.
