Palaeodiversity is a journal open to all authors and addresses an international audience. It publishes high-quality research in all fields of palaeontology. Specimen-based studies which address major questions of current scientific issues or deal with problems on a larger scale are given preference. Longer articles and monographs are welcome, and there is no limit in the number of pages or illustrations. Colour illustrations are possible. As an open-access journal all articles are freely available as PDF files on the web. All submitted manuscripts will be strictly peer-reviewed.
