Geoarchaeology is an interdisciplinary journal published six times per year (in January, March, May, July, September and November). It presents the results of original research at the methodological and theoretical interface between archaeology and the geosciences and includes within its scope: interdisciplinary work focusing on understanding archaeological sites, their environmental context, and particularly site formation processes and how the analysis of sedimentary records can enhance our understanding of human activity in Quaternary environments. Manuscripts should examine the interrelationship between archaeology and the various disciplines within Quaternary science and the Earth Sciences more generally, including, for example: geology, geography, geomorphology, pedology, climatology, oceanography, geochemistry, geochronology, and geophysics. We also welcome papers that deal with the biological record of past human activity through the analysis of faunal and botanical remains and palaeoecological reconstructions that shed light on past human-environment interactions. The journal also welcomes manuscripts concerning the examination, and geological context of human fossil remains as well as papers that employ analytical techniques to advance understanding of the composition and origin of material culture such as, for example, ceramics, metals, lithics, building stones, plasters, and cements. Such composition and provenance studies should include robust sample sizes and be strongly grounded in their geological context through; for example, the systematic analysis of potential source materials, i.e. interactions with the wider landscape, including questions of and impact on the landscape and the role of geoarchaeology in the elucidation of trade and mobility in the past. Articles that deal with the pure characterization of materials might be better submitted to our partner journal, Archaeometry. In most cases, we hope that authors will situate their contributions into the broader research context. This should be done via a narrative that demonstrates the utility of geoarchaeology in answering questions that are of interest to the wider, global archaeological community.
Aims and Scope
The field of geobiology explores the relationship between life and the Earth's physical and chemical environment. Geobiology, launched in 2003, aims to provide a natural home for geobiological research, allowing the cross-fertilization of critical ideas, and promoting cooperation and advancement in this emerging field. We also aim to provide you with a forum for the rapid publication of your results in an international journal of high standing. We are particularly interested in papers crossing disciplines and containing both geological and biological elements, emphasizing the co-evolutionary interactions between life and its physical environment over geological time.
Geobiology invites submission of high-quality articles in the following areas:
- Origins and evolution of life
- Co-evolution of the atmosphere, hydrosphere and biosphere
- The sedimentary rock record and geobiology of critical intervals
- Paleobiology and evolutionary ecology
- Biogeochemistry and global elemental cycles
- Microbe-mineral interactions
- Molecular ecology and phylogenetics
Benefits of Publishing in Geobiology
- Geobiology offers as standard practice double-blind reviewing, in which both authors and reviewers are anonymous to each other. This feature, while new to this area of science, is usual in other rapidly progressing and highly competitive disciplines. We supply this service to ensure the highest quality publication procedures, whereby all submitted manuscripts receive equal treatment and all criticism is truly free and fair. However, authors or reviewers wishing to waive their anonymity may do so.
- We offer a commitment to timely publication, with an average of 40 days time from submission to first decision, and a subsequent 4 to 6 weeks till on-line publication.
- Geobiology now publishes various formats, including (1) standard length research "Articles", (2) short format "Reports" on new research of broad significance, (3) "Perspectives" that are opinion pieces on current or future directions in the field, and (4) "Reviews" that provide up-to-date and comprehensive summaries on topics of geobiological interest.
Aims and Scope
In recent years there has been a growth of specialist journals within geological sciences. Nevertheless, there is an important role for a journal of an interdisciplinary kind. Traditionally, GEOLOGICAL JOURNAL has been such a journal and continues in its aim of promoting interest in all branches of the Geological Sciences, through publication of original research papers and review articles. The journal publishes Special Issues with a common theme or regional coverage e.g. Chinese Dinosaurs; Tectonics of the Eastern Mediterranean, Triassic basins of the Central and North Atlantic Borderlands). These are extensively cited.
The Journal has a particular interest in publishing papers on regional case studies from any global locality which have conclusions of general interest. Such papers may emphasize aspects across the full spectrum of geological sciences.
Sedimentology and Geomorphology - facies analysis, regional sedimentary environments, basin analysis, process of sedimentation, general palaeogeographic reconstruction, diagenesis. [facies analysis, sequence stratigraphy, basin analysis, palaeography, diagenesis, especially in petroleum geology.]
Palaeontology - macroevolution, extinctions, biostratigraphy, palaeoecology, functional morphology, biogeography, evolution, taphonomony, ichnology.
Quaternary Geology and Environmental Change - recent climate and sea-level change, Quaternary fossils, glaciations.
Tectonics and Structural Geology - including structural geology, strain analysis, fabrics, global tectonics, experimental deformation, Neotectonics, geophysics.
Geochemistry and Geochronology - stable and unstable isotope studies, major and trace element studies, genetic geochemical modelling, fluid - rock interaction, applied geochemistry.
Metamorphic Geology - regional studies, determination of T/P , fluid composition, crystallization paths, history of burial and uplift of large metamorphic areas.
Volcanic and Igneous Geology - regional studies of igneous provinces, magma genesis, magma composition, magmatic product, igneous centres, petrological studies.
Geophysical Research Letters publishes high-impact, innovative, and timely communications-length articles on major advances spanning all of the major geoscience disciplines. Papers should have broad and immediate implications meriting rapid decisions and high visibility.
Acta Geophysica is an international journal dealing with all aspects of general and applied geophysics, atmospheric phenomena. This broad scope is divided into five main categories: Solid Earth Sciences, Hydrology, Atmospheric and Space Sciences, Anthropogenic Geohazards and Applied Geophysics. Primary consideration will be given to studies significantly advancing fundamental understanding in geophysics, atmospheric processes and focusing on the interconnection of multiple topics. Work authored by young scientists is welcome.
- Owned by the Institute of Geophysics, Polish Academy of Sciences & Polish Academy of Sciences
- Covers the entire spectrum of disciplines in geophysics
- Deals with all subjects related to atmosphere, hydrosphere and lithosphere
The Journal of Iberian Geology will consider for publication original, high-quality papers (including research articles, reviews and brief communications) dealing with different aspects of Earth Sciences in Latin America and the Caribbean, as well as the Mediterranean region, including Geology, Paleontology, Geophysics and Geochemistry. The journal welcomes research papers with regional appeal, but these should present results of international interest. The Journal accepts collections of selected original papers on topics within these scopes, which will be published as edited monographic issues.
- A destination reference journal in the fields of Geology and Earth Sciences, with a spotlight on Iberia, Latin America and the Mediterranean.
- Showcases high-quality, original findings in both basic and applied Earth Sciences
- Provides a forum for discussion between earth scientists working in Latin America, Iberia and surrounding regions
Mediterranean Geoscience Reviews covers all fields of geology and physical geography which are related to the Mediterranean basins and surrounding regions. The journal is a niche for high-quality original research and review studies in all major disciplines of geosciences such as tectonics, geochemistry, sedimentology, paleontology, petrology, mineralogy, volcanology, engineering and petroleum geology, marine geology, natural hazards, hydrogeology and water resources, engineering geology and environment, paleoenvironment and paleoclimate studies, geoarchaeology, geological heritage, and geomorphology and physical geography. In particular, the journal also aims to attract special issues on thematically linked subjects composed of collected research papers from symposia and meetings (topical collections).
