Thanks to improved financial situation, we have become again an open journal with financial resources coming from voluntary author contributions, donations and advertisements. We thank your strong support in the past, and wish your support to continue.

For over two decades, under the leadership of the New Concepts in Geoplasma Tectonics (NCGT) Journal Founder and former Editor in Chief, Dr. Dong Choi, the NCGT Journal has been a beacon of light for researchers needing a voice and platform to publish their research and offer new concepts that pushed boundaries and challenged established thinking. The "new" NCGT Journal is committed to that same general purpose. Louis A. G. Hissink is the present editor in chief of the journal.
The NCGT Journal has evolved over the years from a journal focused on tectonics to one that now addresses other fields as they are related to GEOPLASAM, for example: climatology, seismology, oceanography, solar and solar system plasma physics, and earth sciences.
It is our fondest hope that those who want a source for innovation in these and other fields of research, will continue to support the NCGT Journal as it creates the commercial base to become a lasting pillar of knowledge for tomorrow's "evidence-based" science.
"What is today's contrarian science, may become tomorrow's established science."
Louis A. G. Hissink M.Sc. MAIG (ret) MIEEE is the editor in chief of the New Concepts in Global Tectonics Journal. He is regarded as one of the top diamond geologists in Australia, having made numerous discoveries of kimberlite in Western Australia and New South Wales. He worked for the Planet Group of companies, Western Mining Corporation as a field and mining geologist, Stockdale Prospecting, the Australian arm of De Beers Diamonds and various smaller exploration companies until his retirement in 2013. He was editor of the Australian Institute of Geoscientists News from 2006 to 2013. His present focus is on the application of plasma physics to geology involving Electric Earth theory, and the forecasting of catastrophic geological phenomena.
