Submit an Image for the Cover

We're looking for photos, digital images, drawings, or other images, preferably in color, to use on the cover of Lithosphere that are vivid, captivating, and artistic.

You don't have to have an article in Lithosphere to submit a cover photo. Images must be of high technical quality, tell an interesting geologic story, and must not have recognizable people. Please note that any image that is used on our cover will be cropped (if necessary) to a vertical format.

For review purposes, we can accept PDFs, low-resolution electronic files, slides, prints, or color Xeroxes. If your image is chosen, we will then request a 35 mm slide, a high-resolution electronic file, or a good photograph. Any images submitted will be returned. There is no charge for submitting an image or for having your image published on the cover.

Lithosphere cover

Please include a short caption explaining the geologic interest of the photograph. The caption must include a credit line acknowledging the photographer. Note that cover photos are not considered to be part of an article published in Lithosphere; if a cover image is related to an article in that issue, the only reference is in the caption for the cover.
