The Journal of Micropalaeontology

The Journal of Micropalaeontology (JM) is well-established as an international publication with a circulation approaching 900 copies and covering all aspects of microfossils and their application both in applied studies and basic research. The Impact Factor for the JM (as of 2011) is 0.759.

The scope of the JM has always been broad, especially to show the application of microfossils to solving geological problems, but with an emphasis on taxonomy. The principal fields of interest are: biostratigraphy; evolution; palaeobiology; palaeoenvironments; reviews; taxonomic studies. The emphasis will be on applications. Our aim is to attract high-quality papers that will prove to be influential in the development of our science.

Instructions for authors 
Notice from editor-in-chief (January 2013) [
view]
The Geological Society Publishing House, who publish the 
Journal of Micropalaeontology on behalf of TMS, are presently constructing an electronic manuscript submission and management system. Until the system is launched, authors can email submissions in electronic form to the Production Editor. Text, tables and figure captions should be submitted as Word files, with figures and plates as either PDFS or low-resolution native files. If your paper is accepted then the final submission will be expected to include the high-resolution native files for figures and plates (e.g. EPS or TIF files). More detailed instructions for authors are available for download here (pdf, 25kb).

Further information on publishing in the journal is available at the Geological Society.

Open Access
The Geological Society has reviewed its publishing practices and has introduced policies to enable authors who choose to do so to publish articles Open Access in its online journals, Special Publications, Engineering Geology Special Publications and Memoirs.
 
Journal of Micropalaeontology now offers authors the choice to publish under either the Gold Open Access model or the Green Open Access model. Gold Open access requires the payment of an Article Processing Charge (APC) of 1000/$2000 on acceptance and the article will be free to all immediately on publication. Green Open Access requires no fee and allows authors to post their accepted manuscript online after an embargo period of 12 months. Full details of our Open Access policy can be found on our website at:  http://www.geolsoc.org.uk/Open-Access
 
Authors will be given the opportunity to choose to publish Open Access once their paper has been accepted and the production editor will manage the publication process and organise invoicing.
 
As you know the Geological Society is committed to developing its publishing services for authors.

  • Indexing Special Publications in Elsevier’s Scopus and Thomson Reuters Web of Science Book Citation Index
  • Online First – our publish-ahead-of-print system which ensures fast publication of papers
  • Mobile sites for journals – allowing greater portability and phone/tablet access from any location
  • Open Access publishing choices

 
Above all, with your help, the Geological Society will continue its policy of publishing high-quality peer-reviewed research outputs, on a not-for-profit basis.
 
If you have any questions about Open Access or any of our other services please email open.access@geolsoc.org.uk or contact your production editor.
