Cover Photo

Send in your striking image for the cover of GEOLOGY!

We need color photos or other color images to use on the cover of Geology. We're looking for images that are vivid, captivating, and artistic-models, photos, micrographs, etc. Use the GEOLOGY cover to showcase your innovative research! GEOLOGY is an international journal with wide media coverage.

You don't have to have an article in GEOLOGY to submit a cover photo! Images must be of high technical quality (preferably vertical format), tell an interesting geologic story, and must not have recognizable people. You may submit high-resolution digital images (at least 300 dpi at 8.5 × 11 inches). Please supply a short caption that explains the geologic interest of the photo. The caption must include a credit line acknowledging the creator of the image. Note that cover photos are not considered as part of an article published in Geology; if a cover image is related to an article in that issue, the only reference to that fact would be in the cover caption.

There's no charge for submitting an image or for having your image published on the GEOLOGY cover. Send items to .
