Geoscience Canada structures many, but not all, of its published articles as part of
Thematic Series Papers which are directed towards specific areas of geoscience, or target
particular problems, or honour the contributions of leading Canadian geoscientists. These papers are
in many cases invited or at least solicited, but we do accept voluntary contributions that are
seen as appropriate contributions. Thematic Series Papers appear in the journal over periods ranging
from two to five years. In many cases, the papers within a series are eventually published as an
independent book compilation by GAC.
Thematic Series Papers are typically 4000 to 7000 words in length, and integrate new data or
concepts with existing information to review and investigate the relevant themes.
To see information on current Thematic Series, and also proposals for new initiatives, check the
categories that interest you in the menu. Pages provide summary information, selected examples of
contributions, and contact information for series editors.
