Editor-in-chief: Francesca Sangiorgi

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.
