“It is exciting that pedometrics and other soil science topics are now included in the portfolio of Frontiers,” Grunwald said.

Frontiers in Soil Science provides “a forum for research excellence in all aspects of soil science.” It invites scientists to submit research in the traditional fields of plant-soil interactions, soil pollution & remediation, soils & human health, soil biogeochemistry & nutrient cycling, and pedometrics.

Frontiers is one of the largest international research publication platforms. Its portfolio contains more than 100 journals covering the physical, medical, and social sciences. It is open access, which means there is no cost to access published journal articles.

“It is a wonderful opportunity to represent pedometrics on this growing global research publication platform,” Grunwald added. “Frontiers Journals has over 1 billion article views and downloads per year with a broad readership.”

She hopes her role as a chief editor will encourage faculty, post-doctoral associates, and students in the Soil and Water Sciences Department and IFAS to submit their research. More information about Frontiers in Soil Science is here: https://www.frontiersin.org/journals/soil-science#about
