Sedimentology The journal of the IAS

Edited by Peir Pufahl and Ian Kane

The international leader in its field, Sedimentology publishes ground-breaking research from across the spectrum of sedimentology, sedimentary geology and sedimentary geochemistry. It has a high academic Impact Factor (IF) and is currently distributed to over 3,500 universities and research laboratories worldwide.

The Depositional Record The open access journal of the IAS

Edited by Peter Swart, Paul Carling, James S. Klaus, Sam Purkis, Matthieu Cartigny, Tracy Frank, Elias Samankassou and Sambuddha Misra

LAUNCH JANUARY 2015 The Depositional Record is a fully open access journal publishing high quality articles from across the field of sedimentology. The journal will cover all timescales, from Ancient to Modern Earth and welcomes articles that emphasise the application of sedimentary processes to the study of paleoclimate, changes in the chemical environment, ocean acidification, extra-terrestrial sedimentology, and the application of genetic methods to understanding sedimentological processes.

Other journals published in association with the IAS

Basin Research

Edited by Cynthia Ebinger, George Hilley, Rebecca Bell, Atle Rotevatn, Nadine McQuarrie and Cari Johnson

Basin Research is an international journal which aims to publish original, high impact research papers on sedimentary basin systems. Access to the complete electronic journal archive comes free with an IAS subscription. Basin Research is online only since 2018.

Journal of Petroleum Geology

Edited by Christopher Tiratsoo

Journal of Petroleum Geology is a quarterly journal devoted to the geology of oil and natural gas. Subscriber's access to the complete electronic journal archive and the option to buy the printed journal at reduced fee is possible through an IAS subscription.


Edited by Elias Samankassou

The Special Publications (SP's) are a set of thematic volumes edited by specialists on subjects of central interest to sedimentologists. Papers are reviewed and printed to the same high standards as those published in Sedimentology and several of these volumes have become standard works of reference. SP's also contain Reprint Series — collections of related papers published over several years in Sedimentology — and Field Guides, pocket-size volumes containing practical field information for individuals and groups visiting areas in the World that provide excellent examples of sedimentary strata.

For subscribers, SP's in stock are available for purchase at reduced fees. Subscribers have also free access to issues older than 5 years.

IAS Newsletters

Catch up with the latest developments and trends in Sedimentology.

Along with each new issue of Sedimentology the IAS publishes its own IAS Newsletter (6 times per year). The newsletter is not only a journal in which the events that occur during the year are reported, but also a medium in which a.o. outcrops and research are presented. The archive — going back as far as issue 13 (1973) — is publicly available.
