This journal provides a vehicle for the rapid dissemination of original scientific work dealing with the reconstruction of lake histories. Although the majority of papers deal with lakes, it also publishes paleoenvironmental studies of river, wetland, peatland and estuary systems. In addition to original data and ideas, the Journal of Paleolimnology publishes review articles, commentaries, book reviews and program announcements. Like the subject itself, this journal is multidisciplinary in nature, and publishes papers concerned with biological, chemical, physical, and geological methods that are used to reconstruct and interpret lake histories. It continues to be a major repository for papers dealing with climatic change, as well as other pressing topics, such as global environmental change, lake acidification, eutrophication, long-term monitoring, and other aspects of lake histories ontogeny.

  • Thank you to our Early Career Researchers

    In 2019 the journal published 8 papers by ECRs covering a wide range of topics including the application of new molecular techniques, taxonomy, and use of multi-proxy paleolimnological techniques to address issues of eutrophication, climate change and water-level variation, as well as lake evolution. The authors’ affiliations include USA, Canada, Europe and Central and South America. Congratulations to our ECRs and we welcome more submissions from our young researchers.

    Enjoy free-access to these papers for a period of 8 weeks!
