Publication form of Geochronometria
In order to increase the international accessibility of Geochronometria, starting from Volume 26 (year 2007) it has been published in electronic form by the publishing house Versita using the platform of MetaPress up to volume 37 (year 2010). From the beginning of 2011 (volume 38) Springer is the co-publisher and distributor of Geochronometria and is available on the SpringerLink platform. Geochronometria's volumes up to volume 37 are available free of charge. The use of this platform of electronic publishing enables the following:
From volume 38 volumes will be numbered annually with four issues a year. This is expected to significantly shorten the time from submission to publication.
Apart from the above form, Geochronometria, up to volume 37 is available online through the current site www.geochronometria.pl
We hope that you will continue publishing in Geochronometria and thus help to make Geochronometria a success for the benefit of the international community of researchers developing and using methods of absolute chronology.
Aim and scope
Geochronometria is aimed at integrating scientists developing different methods of absolute chronology and using them in different fields of earth and other natural sciences and archaeology. The methods in use are physical (e.g. radiocarbon and other isotopic methods, luminescence etc.) as well as non-physical (e.g. dendrochronology or varve chronology), and they are used in so diverse fields of science as geology, palaeoclimatology, palaeobiology, palaeohydrology, archaeology, etc.. Each method can be applied in many fields, and vice versa, each field can benefit from application of many chronological methods. The journal enables an easy exchange of information about the potential and limitations of various chronological methods to solve specific problems in various branches of science, and stimulates formulation of new ideas on their further development and application.
In the sense of classical division of sciences, Geochronometria is multidisciplinary and in fact, interdisciplinarity is quite a common feature of most modern research dealing with methods of absolute chronology.
Geochronometria publishes papers that are concerned with all methods of absolute dating. Papers focusing both on techniques/methodology and on applications of dating are equally encouraged. Papers combining and comparing results of various methods are especially desirable.
