Special issue: Quaternary research in times of change – inspired by INQUA Roma 2023

13 July 2023

The INQUA conference in Rome will officially start on Friday, 14 July 2023, under the motto "Time for Change" and we are happy to announce that a special issue in EGQSJ inspired by this motto will be opened for submissions parallel to the conference. Since the last INQUA conference held in Dublin in 2019, the years have indeed been times of change in many respects, but the programme of this year's INQUA conference impressively documents that Quaternary research has accepted and coped with these challenges. This special issue aims at assembling contributions reflecting the advances in all fields of Quaternary research. Finally, it celebrates that EGQSJ has received its first impact factor and CiteScore in July 2023.

Full papers (max. 20 pages in print) and express reports (max. 5 pages in print) will be eligible for this special issue. Other manuscript formats (thesis abstracts, retrospectives) may be eligible upon request. As a community-based journal, we especially welcome contributions from young researchers. For the special issue, the general APC waiver policy applies – authors can apply for an APC waiver in case that no alternative funding or resources are available. If the waiver is accepted, the German Quaternary Association (DEUQUA) will cover the APCs. Please do not hesitate to contact us either in person at INQUA Roma, or via our contact details provided on the journal homepage in the editorial board section.

We are very much looking forward to your submissions!
