Author Information

View Author Information for:

The Geological Society of America publishes scientific papers on all aspects of geology. Manuscripts in any research field of geology are considered for publication by GSA, especially if the papers are useful in more than one field. Those that discuss principles are generally preferred to detailed areal studies, many of which are more appropriate to state, provincial, or university publications. Do not submit papers that have been submitted, accepted, or published elsewhere.

All scientific papers and maps and charts submitted to GSA are read critically by referees before they are accepted for publication. The usual review period ranges from a few weeks for very short papers to four or more months for some journal and book-length papers.

You can find all GSA publications in print or in preparation in the GSA Store. For a printed catalog contact GSA Sales and Service, .
