Instructions for authors

The majority of published contributions relate to oral or poster presentations presented at the previous annual meeting, but this is not a requirement. The Society welcomes the submission of manuscripts relating to any aspect of the geology or geomorphology of South-West England, and related areas, including review papers. Shorter communications are also welcomed.

An electronic copy of the manuscript and figures must be submitted to the editor by, at the latest, the 30th April for inclusion in the same year's journal (a brief extension to this deadline may be possible through contacting the editor). In order to help the editorial team, please submit the manuscript in the same format as a recent volume of Geoscience in South-West England. Instructions to authors for preparing manuscripts and a copy of the Journal’s Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice Statement are available to be downloaded below.
