Description: Special Papers, first published in 1934, were originally developed for articles that were too long to be published in the society’s journal, The Geological Society of America Bulletin. The series has evolved over the years and now includes monographs, symposium-based volumes, and longer, multi-author volumes with dedicated volume editors. Special Papers present state-of-the-art treatments of rapidly evolving subjects, the results of which may be altered or augmented by subsequent research. Many Special Papers have made lasting and significant contributions to the science, and all are vetted by science editors, who choose proposals and completed volumes that are of high quality and broad interest. A wide range of topics is covered from regions throughout the world.
Frequency & Formats:GSA currently publishes between 15 and 18 Special Papers a year.(GSA Home)
