In accordance with the unique scope of our journal, PE will prioritize manuscripts that include one or more of the following:
1) Development or use of innovative paleontological methods, which may include imaging techniques, preparation techniques, statistical analyses, etc.
2) High-quality illustrations
3) Topic of broad interest, which may include the description of fossils of particular interest or exceptional preservation, analysis of paleobiological patterns and processes, or comprehensive treatments of a particular taxon or flora/fauna
4) Unusual structure or media; subject matter that is directly relevant to paleontology but not typical of standard paleontology manuscripts
Manuscripts that do not meet these criteria may not be sent out for review - for example, manuscripts that seem appropriate for a more local or regional venue. PE has some capacity to publish manuscripts that are longer than the typical journal article (e.g., monographs), but please contact the editors before submission to discuss feasibility.
