Instructions for authors

Quartär publishes Original articles, Review articles, Short notes, and Book reviews. All manuscripts are subject to peer review.

Original articles describe previously unpublished results of recent research. Review articles chronicle recent progress in particular areas of research, but they should not simply summarize the author‘s work. Before submitting exceptionally long manuscripts (more than 150‘000 characters, including spaces) please contact the editors. Short notes (no more than 7‘500 characters including spaces) provide the opportunity for communication of original results. For book reviews separate instructions apply.
