Focus and Scope

Palaeoentomology is the official journal of the International Palaeoentomological Society. It is an international peer-reviewed scientific journal, which publishes high quality, original research contributions as well as review papers. Papers are published in English, covering a wide spectrum of topics in palaeoentomology, fossil terrestrial arthropods and amber research, i.e. systematic palaeontology, morphology, diversity, palaeogeography, palaeoecology, palaeobehaviour, evolutionary and phylogenetic studies on fossil insects and terrestrial arthropods, biostratigraphy, taphonomy, and amber (deposits, inclusions, geochemistry, curation). Descriptions of new methods (analytical, instrumental or numerical) should be relevant to the broad scope of the journal.
