AUSTRIAN JOURNAL OF EARTH SCIENCES 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
AUSTRIAN JOURNAL OF EARTH SCIENCE focuses on all aspects relevant to the geosciences of the Alpine realm including the Bohemian Massif, the surrounding sedimentary basins and related regions in Central Europe, for example the Tethyan and Paratethyan realms. As such, we invite contributions from the fields of mineralogy, geology, geophysics, petrology or hydrogeology, as well as all aspects of palaeontology, palaeobiogeography and biostratigraphy that are of relevance to the greater Alpine orogen and its surrounding oceans. 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.
For manuscript submission see the GUIDELINES.

Austrian Journal of Earth Sciences (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 2008 AJES is an officially fully peer reviewed journal and is listed by the Science Citation Index SCI. Since 2021 AJES is the official journal of all Earth Science societies.
