Austrian Journal of Earth Sciences

Seit 2020 ist die Österreichische Mineralogische Gesellschaft gemeinsam mit der Österreichischen Geologischen Gesellschaft und der Österreichischen Paläontologischen Gesellschaft an der Herausgabe des Austrian Journal of Earth Sciences beteiligt. Diese internationale Zeitschrift veröffentlicht Fachartikel in englischer Sprache, die durch Peer Review und Listung im Science Citation Index höchste wissenschaftliche Qualität und weite Verbreitung erfahren. Die Beiträge sind Open Access über die Homepage des Journals zugänglich.

AUSTRIAN JOURNAL OF EARTH SCIENCES (AJES) is the official journal of the Austrian Geological (ÖGG), Mineralogical (ÖMG), Palaeontological (ÖPG) and Hydrogeological (ÖVH) Societies, hosted by a country that is famous for its spectacular mountains, sedimentary basins and classical fossil sites, that were and are the birthplace for many geoscientific concepts in modern Earth science.

Aims and Scope
AJES focuses on all aspects relevant to the geosciences of the Alps, Bohemian Massif and surrounding sedimentary basins. As such, we invite contributions from the fields of mineralogy, petrology, geology, geophysics or petrology as well as all aspects of palaeontology, palaeobiogeography and biostratigraphy that are of relevance to the greater Alpine region. Contributions on other regions are welcome if they embed their findings into a conceptual framework that relates the contribution to Alpine-type orogens and Alpine regions in general and are thus relevant to an international audience. Contributions are subject to peer review and editorial control according to SCI guidelines to ensure that the required standard of scientific excellence is maintained.

AJES was initially founded as the "Mitteilungen der Geologischen Gesellschaft in Wien" (1908) and renamed in 2004 (vol. 95-96), Since 2018 (vol. 111) it is published Open Access by SCIENDO, but remains in copyright of the Austrian Earth Science societies. Since 2021 AJES is the official journal of all Earth Science societies. Since 2008 AJES is an officially fully peer reviewed journal and is listed by the Science Citation Index SCI.
