"Carnets de Géologie" has been established to provide a new and rapid means of presenting papers in the field of sedimentology, stratigraphy, and paleontology, but submissions on other subjects will be considered for publication.

Most papers are in French or English, but others in Spanish, German, or Italian will appear; all include abstracts in English and French. Contributions will appear in the form of numbered issues as soon as they have been approved by the reviewers and any revisions necessary have been made by their authors.

There are three categories of contribution:
1- Memoirs (long copiously illustrated papers presented in HTML with many links),
2- Articles (1,500 to 50,000 words presented in PDF or HTML),
3- Letters (less than 1,500 words, mostly in PDF). Please refer to the guide for additional information regarding these categories.

Prospective authors, as well as special editors (symposium volume, ...), are requested to submit their proposal either to our headquarters in Brest or to a committee member who will forward it. Insofar as it is feasible all aspects of the publication process will be handled electronically.

Current issues are hosted by Paleopolis using the "Red IRIS" server in Spain. Archives are currently hosted by the "Red IRIS" in Spain, the "Université libre de Bruxelles" in Belgium and the "INIST-CNRS" in France.

Copies of the CD-ROM or DVD-ROM version of "Carnets de Géologie" are deposited annually in the Bibliothèque Nationale de France in Paris as a permanent archive and record of our publications. Contact us if you want to get one or more for your records or to establish a subscription:

Note that the ISSN number of this DVD-ROM (or, previously, CD-ROM) version is different from that of the online version and that of the CD-ROM version.

If you are reluctant to consider electronic publishing here are the obvious advantages:

(1) An ISSN (as in any "reputable" printed scientific journal): ISSN 1634-0744 for the online version, ISSN 1765-2553 for the CD-ROM version (2003-2008), and ISSN 2108-5196 for the DVD-ROM version;

(2) Permanent archives (all papers will be included therein and freely accessible) under Paleopolis / Red IRIS (Spain), INIST-CNRS (France) and Université Libre de Bruxelles (Belgium);

(3) A peer-review system (one goal of the scientific and editorial committee is to peer-review contributions immediately or to send them at once to competent reviewers);

(4) Publication faster than in any commercially printed scientific journal (including illustrations and photographs in color);

(5) Full royalty assured (when applicable): "Carnets de Géologie" reserves the right to negotiate royalties in place of the author(s) for the reproduction for commercial purposes of any material it has published (non-commercial use remains free). When economically viable the author(s) will receive in toto any sum accrued thereby;

(6) Guaranteed readership: On February 19, 2010, more than 2,400 readers were registered to receive email notification of the posting of a new contribution (registration began on June 10, 2003). Electronic publishing facilitates access to the information required for education and research;

(7) We are now listed in these Directories and Databases as the initial stage of a continuing effort to increase our recognition:
- BIOSIS - Biology Browser,
- Zoological Record (Ovid Technologies Inc.),
- ISI (Thomson Scientific)
- GeoRef ( American Geological Institute),
- Geoscience e-Journals (Spain),
- DOAJ - Directory of Open Access Journals,

The Association

In accordance with the French Law of 1 July 1901 and the Decree of 16 August 1901, on 21 March 2007 an association was created at Brest with the name "Carnets de Géologie". It is a cultural association for the purpose of aiding the diffusion of and promoting scientific information concerning earth and life sciences.
