Instructions for Authors

The New Mexico Bureau of Geology and Mineral Resources is actively seeking manuscripts for publication. Authors interested in publishing monographs, scenic trips, geologic maps, or other major projects 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. Authors interested in contributing papers to our periodicals should contact the appropriate editor. 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. There are also no author fees assessed in the production of our publications.
