About the Journal
Alcheringa: An Australasian Journal of Palaeontology is the official journal of the Association of Australasian Palaeontologists (AAP). Four issues are published per year, as of 2007, and contain peer-reviewed palaeontological articles for an international audience. It has an Impact Factor of 1.395 as of 2021.
Alcheringa publishes articles on aspects of palaeontology and its ramifications into the earth and biological sciences, including taxonomy, biostratigraphy, micropalaeontology, vertebrate palaeontology, palaeobotany, palynology, palaeobiology, palaeoanatomy, palaeoecology, biostratinomy, biogeography, chronobiology, biogeochemistry, and palichnology. Review articles are welcome, and may be solicited from time to time. Thematic issues are also possible. Emphasis is placed on high quality and informative illustration, in both line drawings and photographs. Papers of general significance may receive preference over those of more local interest.
