Open Access: research journal articles, datasets, and other research outputs that anyone can freely use. Paleontology has many open access journals and journal articles. Here’s a listing of open access resources for paleontology, mostly in the form of journals, based on @afarke’s list from his blog article about it, found here: Open Source Paleontologist. Note: not all the journals are specifically paleontology based. Some might have biology focus, but publish paleontology papers. I also found this link, which claims to incorporate 60 open-access geoscience journals: Geoscience e-journals. Kenneth De Baets’ website also has a sortable list of paleontological journals, here: journals for paleontological research. And, if you’re interested in the most up to date open access articles, PLOS Paleo’s Fossil Friday posts are the best thing around: Fossil Friday Roundup
From the American Museum of Natural History: American Museum Novitates and Bulletin of the American Museum of Natural History
PaleoXiv: community-sourced digital archive of paleontological working papers, pre-prints, accepted manuscripts, and published papers
What’s your go-to journal for open access paleontology?October 19, 2017 at 11:01 am #28588Eleanor GardnerModerator
My go-to’s are PLOS ONE and Palaeontologia Electronica (side note: I feel like the journal should officially change the name, as so many people add an extra “c” at the end of Palaeontologia – it is a super common error!).
When I taught geology at the university level, I frequently incorporated peer-reviewed publications into assignments. I’m curious to learn how K-12 teachers might do the same. Perhaps @groberti could give some insight, as she crafted a high school lesson plan that did this (https://www.myfossil.org/paleontology-in-the-real-world-using-the-recent-paleontological-literature-to-engage-high-school-students-and-encourage-stem-based-learning/).April 19, 2018 at 3:34 pm #34878Dana EhretParticipant
We just published a new species of sea turtle, Peritresius martini, from the Campanian of Alabama. The species was named for George Martin, an amateur paleontologist from Auburn, AL who donated what is now the holotype to the Alabama Museum of Natural History.February 5, 2019 at 2:44 pm #46020
