The Journal of Adam Mickiewicz University
Uneingeschränkter Zugang

GEOLOGOS is an international, peer-reviewed journal publishing research results and review articles covering all earth-science disciplines, with a focus on the geology of central and eastern Europe. Studies on areas of poorly known geology (e.g. Asia and Africa) are also published. Articles from non-European areas should be universal and problem-related, while purely regional issues are avoided.

Over the last years, Geologos has published studies on many topics, including:

  • mineralogy and geochemistry
  • sedimentology (siliciclastics and carbonates, sedimentary structures, facies analysis)
  • palaeontology (invertebrate palaeontology, trace fossils, micropalaeontology)
  • stratigraphy and petroleum geology (sequence stratigraphy)
  • glacial geology (Pleistocene palaeogeography and stratigraphy, lithology of glaciogenic deposits)
  • hydrogeology (groundwater circulation, groundwater flow models, drainage systems, deep aquifers)
  • meteorites (Morasko meteorite fall).

GEOLOGOS has been issued since 1995 as the journal of the Institute of Geology, Adam Mickiewicz University (AMU) in Poznań, Poland.

GEOLOGOS is an open access journal; all content is freely available without charge.

Three issues of GEOLOGOS are published each year. Electronic versions of all papers are published on the Sciendo platform.
