Papers in Palaeontology is the successor to Special Papers in Palaeontology and a journal of the Palaeontological Association (www.palass.org). The journal is devoted to the publication of papers that document the diversity of past life and its distribution in time and space. As a sister publication to Palaeontology its focus is on descriptive research, including the descriptions of new taxa, systematic revisions of higher taxa, detailed biostratigraphical and biogeographical documentation, and descriptions of floras and faunas from specific localities or regions. Most contributions are expected to be less than 30 pp long but longer contributions will be considered if the material merits it, including single topic parts.

The journal publishes a wide variety of papers on palaeontological topics covering:

  • palaeozoology
  • palaeobotany
  • systematic studies
  • palaeoecology
  • micropalaeontology
  • palaeobiogeography
  • functional morphology
  • stratigraphy
  • taxonomy
  • taphonomy
  • palaeoenvironmental reconstruction
  • palaeoclimate analysis
  • biomineralization studies
