E&G Quaternary Science Journal (EGQSJ) is an interdisciplinary open-access journal published by the German Quaternary Association (DEUQUA) since 1951, and it is one of the longest-running journals related to Quaternary research. EGQSJ publishes peer-reviewed articles and express reports, as well as thesis abstracts related to Quaternary geology, paleo-environments, paleo-ecology, soil science, paleo-climatology, geomorphology, geochronology, archaeology, and geoarchaeology focussing on, but not limited to, research from central Europe.

The German Quaternary Association (Deutsche Quartärvereinigung, DEUQUA e.V.) will cover the article processing charges for papers to be published in E&G Quaternary Science Journal. If you would like to support DEUQUA and E&G Quaternary Science Journal, there is the option to pay for the APCs yourself (e.g. from project funding).
