About Basin Research
Basin Research (Wiley, ISSN 0950-091X | eISSN 1365-2117) is an international journal which aims to publish original, high impact research papers on sedimentary basin systems. We view integrated, interdisciplinary research as being essential for the advancement of the subject area; therefore, we do not seek manuscripts focused purely on sedimentology, structural geology, or geophysics that have a natural home in specialist journals. Rather, we seek manuscripts that treat sedimentary basins as multi-component systems that require a multi-faceted approach to advance our understanding of their development. During deposition and subsidence we are concerned with large-scale geodynamic processes, heat flow, fluid flow, strain distribution, seismic and sequence stratigraphy, modelling, burial and inversion histories. In addition, we view the development of the source area, in terms of drainage networks, climate, erosion, denudation and sediment routing systems as vital to sedimentary basin systems. The underpinning requirement is that a contribution should be of interest to earth scientists of more than one discipline.
Basin Research is published on behalf of the International Association of Sedimentologists and the European Association of Geoscientists and Engineers (EAGE) and is edited by Cynthia Ebinger, Sebastien Castelltort, George Hilley, Chris Jackson and Andreas Mulch.
