AIG Journal accepts original papers dealing with any aspect of professional geoscientific practice. Both AIG members and non-members may submit papers for publication. The subject matter of papers and notes that will be accepted for publication is designed to be suitably broad by including any aspect of Australian geoscience: geoscientific practice, work undertaken by Australian geoscientists anywhere in the world or any other topic considered to be relevant to Australian geoscientists.
The journal is divided into two sections:
- AIG Journal: papers dealing with research, professional practice topics or review papers; and,
- AIG Notebook: short notes dealing with topical issues, field techniques etc.
All papers and notes submitted for publication will be peer-reviewed. Rapid publication is, however, an objective of the journal. There is no publishing schedule. Papers and notes will be published on-line (for both reading on-line and in downloadable form) as soon as they are accepted for publication. An annual compilation of papers and notes published in the journal will also be prepared for publication in printed form. Papers published in the journal will be assigned a unique identifier to assist with citing AIG Journal content in other publications.
Authors will be required to assign copyright of papers and notes published in AIG Journal to the Australian Institute of Geoscientists.
There are no publication charges associated with the journal.
The suitability of any paper or note for publication will be determined by the journal’s editorial panel, whose decision will be final.
