The Journal of Micropalaeontology (JM) is well-established as an international publication with a
circulation approaching 900 copies covering all aspects of microfossils and their application both in applied studies and basic research.
The current Editor-in-Chief, Professor Alan Lord (Forschungsinstitut Senckenberg), is supported by a board of specialist editors.
This journal is published on behalf of The Micropalaeontological Society
The scope of the journal 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.
To further disseminate the information the journal is abstracted in:
- Geological Abstracts
- Petroleum Abstrcts
- Science Citation Index
- Current Contents
