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 53 are open access. Papers in volume 54 (2018) will become open access one year after publication. Volumes 54 and 55 (2019) are available by subscription only (except for editorials and conference abstracts which are open access immediately upon publication). 

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