Cambridge Journals announce partnership with the Paleontological Society


The Paleontological Society and Cambridge University Press announce a new publishing partnership for the Paleontological Society’s journals. Beginning in 2015, Cambridge Journals will be publishing the Journal of Paleontology and Paleobiology.

The Paleontological Society is an international non-profit organization and one of the world’s leading learned societies devoted exclusively to the advancement of the science of paleontology. Established in 1927, the Journal of Paleontology publishes research in a broad spectrum of specimen-based paleontology. Paleobiology, established in 1975, is the leading journal on theoretical issues in paleobiology.

Simon Ross, Managing Director, Journals at Cambridge University Press said of the partnership: “We are absolutely delighted to have been chosen to publish the leading journals in paleontology and to be working with such a prestigious society. We look forward to working together developing the publishing portfolio and increasing the global impact of the highest quality research in paleontology.”

“The Paleontological Society is pleased to announce the beginning of a partnership with Cambridge University Press for the publication of our journals, beginning January 1, 2015. Cambridge distinguished itself from among a strong field of competitors by convincing us that they are best able to help us navigate the rapidly changing landscape of 21st-century scientific publishing. This partnership will be of immediate and long-term value to the Society and its members, with great potential for growth and development, while allowing us to remain firmly committed to our mission of advancing the science of paleontology. The Paleontological Society is eager to begin this exciting new phase of our publishing activities.” said Prof. Sandra Carlson, President of the Paleontological Society.
