PALAIOS 31:7 & 8

Publication date: 2016
Subject: Paleontology

PALAIOS, founded in 1986, is a journal dedicated to emphasizing the impact of life on Earth’s history as recorded in the paleontological and sedimentological records. PALAIOS disseminates information to an international spectrum of geologists and biologists interested in a broad range of topics, including, but not limited to, biogeochemistry, ichnology, paleoclimatology, paleoecology, paleoceanography, sedimentology, stratigraphy, geomicrobiology, paleobiogeochemistry, and astrobiology.

PALAIOS publishes original papers that emphasize using paleontology to answer important geological and biological questions that further our understanding of Earth history. Accordingly, manuscripts whose subject matter and conclusions have broader geologic implications—rather than narrowly focused discourses—are much more likely to be selected for publication. Given that the purpose of PALAIOS is to generate enthusiasm for paleontology among a broad spectrum of readers, the editors request the following titles that generate immediate interest; abstracts that emphasize important conclusions; illustrations of professional caliber used in place of words; and lively, yet scholarly, text.

PALAIOS should be the journal of choice in which to publish innovative research involving all aspects of past and present life from which geological, biological, chemical, and atmospheric processes can be deciphered and applied to finding solutions to past and future geological and paleontological problems. PALAIOS reserves the right to reject manuscripts based on prior publication of substantial portions of text, data, or conclusions, including if published in a language other than English or through electronic media such as websites.
