Atlantic Geology

Atlantic Geology (originally Maritime Sediments, subsequently Maritime Sediments and Atlantic Geology) covers all aspects of the geology of Atlantic Canada and related areas. It publishes papers, notes and discussions on original research and review papers, where appropriate to the regional geology.


*Volumes 1 through 50 are open access. Volume 51 and the current volume (52) are available by subscription only (except for editorials and conference abstracts which are open access). 

Atlantic Geology now provides authors with the opportunity to comply with “open access” requirements.  Effective with Volume 52 (2016), papers published in the journal will be “open access” 12 months after they appear in the journal.  If authors want immediate “open access”, the charge will be $30 per published page.  Papers published in volume 51 (2015) will become “open access” in January 2016. Abstract series are open access immediately after publication.
