JM cover

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.

Extended agreement with the Leibniz Association 03 May 2018

As of 1 May 2018 the centralized payment of article processing charges (APCs) with the Leibniz Association has been extended to 53 Leibniz Institutions participating in the Leibniz Association's Open Access Publishing Fund.

Relaunch promotion completed 07 Feb 2018

The relaunch promotion of JM is now complete and no more submissions can benefit from this campaign (see news item from 8 January 2018). However, JM is looking forward to receiving many more regular submissions. Reasonable article processing charges and member reductions are available.
