Author Guidelines

Research Articles

The majority of the articles published in the journal are original Research Articles. Research papers should report new and original research of high quality that meet the criteria of being of broad international interest, significant and novel.

Review Articles

Review Articles provide a comprehensive and novel assessment of an issue or significant region in geology and should be of interest to a wide readership. A Review Article should provide a balanced, integrated and critical summary of previous work and should evaluate potential controversial issues. Important new data may be presented, but are not the focus of the review. Illustrations should where possible integrate existing data into new comprehensive figures rather than duplicating published work.
