AMQ publishes peer-reviewed, original research and review articles in an open access format.

Accepted articles span the full extent of the Quaternary sciences.

Aims and Scope

AMQ publishes articles about Quaternary history, past climate, past biodiversity, relative sea level change, past human-environment interactions, impact of ancient civilizations and evolution of the regions surrounding the Mediterranean Basin, including the Alpine-Himalayan mountains and basins, the Middle East and Northern Africa. Original reports dealing with wider geographical perspectives and global processes are also welcome. It also contains comments and replies on previous works, book reviews, news of interest and reports on AIQUA activities. 

AMQ occasionally publishes special issues on topical research themes.

The highest level of editorial support will be given to special issues throughout the review and publication processes. Thematic proposals for future special issues in AMQ are welcome at any time, and the editors will evaluate all proposals based on scientific themes and interest to our readership.
