As part of the INQUA 2013 ECR Inter-congress meeting Quaternary International has agreed to run a special issue for ECRs. The aim is for ECRs (MSc/PhD candidates, Post-Doctoral Researchers and research-active academics within 5 years of obtaining their PhD) to either be the primary or single author with manuscripts that are at an advanced stage and ready for submission to the QI editorial process (see QI contributors 2014 ECR INQUA for details on how to submit to the Special Issue).

Submissions associated with the commission themes and associated INQUA projects are welcome (
– Coastal and marine processes [CMP]
– Palaeoclimate [PALCOMM]
– Humans and Biosphere [HaBCom]
– Stratigraphy and Chronology [SACCOM]
– Terrestrial Processes, Deposits and History [TERPRO]

Submissions need to be at the required standard for publication in QI and will undergo the normal QI editorial process. The aim is to have manuscripts submitted before the meeting in December and followed up with writing workshops at the ECR meeting to assist in addressing reviewer’s comments and further developing the manuscripts.


If you have any questions or would like to discuss a submission please contact the Guest Editors of this special Issue Craig Sloss or Lynda Petherick.
