|Paleobiology Information & Types of Submissions|
|Types of submissions:||Paleobiology publishes original
contributions of any length (but normally 10-50 manuscript pages) dealing
with any aspect of biological paleontology. Emphasis is placed on biological
or paleobiological processes and patterns, including macroevolution, extinction,
diversification, speciation, functional morphology, bio-geography, phylogeny,
paleoecology, molecular paleontology, taphonomy, natural selection and
patterns of variation, abundance, and distribution in space and time,
among others. Taxonomic papers are welcome if they have significant and
broad applications. Papers concerning research on recent organisms and
systems are appropriate if they are of particular interest to paleontologists.
Papers should typically interest readers from more than one specialty.
Proposals for symposium volumes should be discussed in advance with the
editors. All manuscripts are to be in English. Submission of a manuscript
to Paleobiology implies that it is not simultaneously being considered
for publication by another journal. Please review Paleobiology's
Larger manuscripts on the same subjects as those normally covered in Paleobiology articles should be submitted to the Paleobiology Memoirs series.
Paleobiology Matters of the Record
Paleobiology also welcomes submissions for Matters of the Record, which features up-to-date discussions of new discoveries, reviews of recent conceptual advances, and brief syntheses of important topics. In most cases, submissions will be limited to 4-6 manuscript pages with sufficient references. All submissions will be vetted for appropriateness and peer-reviewed prior to acceptance. Inquiries, proposals, and submissions should be directed to the MOR Editor.
