GSW Adds Journals from The Geological Society of London

GeoScienceWorld (GSW) announces the addition of Journal of Micropalaeontology (JM), Scottish Journal of Geology (SJG) and the Proceedings of the Yorkshire Geological Society (PYGS) to its growing collection of prestigious Earth science journals. These three journals are published by the Geological Society of London (GSL) on behalf of their owners.

Neal Marriott, Director of Publishing, Library and Information Services for the Geological Society of London said: “The Geological Society of London publishes these journals on behalf of three prestigious societies with close links to GSL. GSL and the owning societies are very pleased that these journals have now joined GeoScienceWorld; they will benefit from increased visibility and the range of functions and services that GSW has developed. The exposure which GSW’s extensive subscriber base provides will serve the needs of the community of geoscientists and authors well.”

“Widely respected and in high demand, JM, SJG and PYGS make a valuable new addition to our Millennium Collection of journals, enabling our more than 4 million users in 43 countries access to these esteemed publications,” says Alix Vance, Executive Director of GSW.

Scottish Journal of Geology is published twice a year by the Geological Society of London on behalf of the Geological Society of Glasgow and the Edinburgh Geological Society. SJG publishes papers on all aspects of the geology of Scotland and its adjacent areas including Europe, the North Sea and North Atlantic margins. The journal includes review papers and papers on broader aspects of the Earth sciences.

Proceedings of the Yorkshire Geological Society, published on behalf of the Yorkshire Geological Society twice a year, dates from 1839 and is a leading British geological journal publishing original research, discussion papers and proceedings on all aspects of geology with a particular focus on the geology of northern England.

Journal of Micropalaeontology is published twice a year on behalf of The Micropalaeontological Society and is well-established as an international journal covering all aspects of microfossils and their application both in applied studies and basic research. The scope of the journal is broad and demonstrates the application of microfossils to solving geological problems with an emphasis on taxonomy. The principal fields of interest are: biostratigraphy; evolution; palaeobiology; palaeoenvironments; reviews and taxonomic studies.
