JM cover

The Journal of Micropalaeontology (JM) is an established international journal covering all aspects of microfossils and their application to both applied studies and basic research. In particular we welcome submissions relating to microfossils and their application to palaeoceanography, palaeoclimatology, palaeobiology, evolution, taxonomy, environmental change and molecular phylogeny. Owned by The Micropalaeontological Society, the scope of the journal is broad, demonstrating the application of microfossils to solving broad geoscience issues.

The Journal of Micropalaeontology is currently published by GSL Publishing. JM will be relaunched as an open-access journal in January 2018. Article processing charges apply for all submissions after 1 May 2017.
