Instructions for Authors

Authors interested in publishing with the Bureau of Geology should submit a written proposal directly to our publications chair, Shari Kelley. The proposal should clearly describe the importance of the work and whether the intended audience is other geoscientists, the general public, or some other group. Open-file reports are another potential option for authors who want to disseminate their work without the burden of rigorous peer review.

Note that outside authors and photographers will usually retain copyright to their own material published by the Bureau of Geology.
