Palaeoworld is a peer-reviewed quarterly journal dedicated to the study of past life and its environment. We encourage submission of original manuscripts on all aspects of palaeontology and stratigraphy, comparisons of regional and global data in time and space, and results generated by interdisciplinary investigations in related fields. Some issues will be devoted entirely to a special theme whereas others will be composed of contributed articles. Palaeoworld is dedicated to serving a broad spectrum of geoscientists and palaeobiologists as well as serving as a resource for students in fields as diverse as palaeobiology, evolutionary biology, taxonomy and phylogeny, geobiology, historical geology, and palaeoenvironment.

Palaeoworld publishes original articles in the following areas:

•Phylogeny and taxonomic studies of all fossil groups
•Biostratigraphy, chemostratigraphy, chronostratigraphy
•Palaeoecology, palaeoenvironment and global changes throughout Earth history
•Tempo and mode of biological evolution
•Biological events in Earth history (e.g., extinctions, radiations)
•Ecosystem evolution
•Geobiology and molecular palaeobiology
•Palaeontological and stratigraphic methods
•Interdisciplinary studies focusing on fossils and strata

Palaeoworld accepts the following categories of contributions:

•Palaeoworld Perspectives
•Rapid communications
•Original technical research papers and case studies
•Review articles (normally invited)
•Collections of articles on a special theme
•Letter to the Editors
•Book reviews

This journal welcomes contributions that support and advance the UN's sustainable development goals, in particular SDG 13 (Climate Action)
