Subject: paleonet New Journal for 2003


Cambridge University Press is delighted to announce the launch of a new journal, the Journal of Systematic Palaeontology in 2003.  As a direct successor to the Bulletin of The Natural History Museum, London: Geology Series, Journal of Systematic Palaeontology will publish major papers describing new or poorly understood faunas and floras, or which use systematics in ways that significantly advance our understanding of palaeogeography, palaeobiology, functional morphology, palaeoecology, biostratigraphy or phylogenetic relationships.

Shorter contributions on technical or conceptual issues relating to systematic methodology and conservation issues are also welcome. In this way the journal aims to demonstrate and strengthen the fundamental contribution systematics and collection-based data make to evolutionary palaeontology.


Journal of Systematic Palaeontology welcomes papers which make a substantial and lasting contribution to systematics through the description of new faunas and floras or the revision of existing ones, or which use rigorous phylogenetic approaches to address questions of evolutionary relationship.

Offers of papers should be sent to the editor-in-chief, Dr Andrew B. Smith, Department of Palaeontology, The Natural History Museum, Cromwell Road, London SW7 5DB, UK

Email: a.smith@nhm.ac.uk

Instructions for contributors are available from the editor-in-chief on request.
