Dear all,
I have been reviewer of this journal, as well as being author, and guest editor for a special issue within my field of research. I am aware that there may have been some problems in the past, but my experience is that the journal now is a respected journal within my area of research. I therefore think Land should be considered a Level 1 journal.

With kind regards,
Jesper M. Paasch,
University of Gävle, Sweden
Dear Jesper,

Thank you for your comment.
We will keep the journal at level X for now. We will do a new consideration of the journal at the decision meeting in January.

Kind regards,
Lena-Cecilie Linge
I served as a reviewer of this journal. The manuscript was flawed with methodological problems and I recommended against considering it. However, the editor ignored my recommendation and accepted the manuscript for publication. It is hard to accept that Sustainability is considered a Level X outlet while Land is Level 1! I do not believe that Land should be considered a Level 1 journal.
Dear Pourya,

We discussed the journal at the decision meeting and decided that it will keep level 1 for now. However, as soon as the new committee for earth sciences is in place, we will ask them to evaluate the journal.

Kind regards,
Lena-Cecilie Linge
Dear Pourya,

Thank you for your feedback.
I will put the journal up for the decision meeting 10.June for a reconsideration.

Kind regards,
Lena-Cecilie Linge
