The Editors' Choice section has been successfully implemented in 2015 with 12 excellent papers printed shortly after submission. Meanwhile, the other papers are posted online within a week of acceptance and currently appear in print in less than 9 months, sustaining our hallmarks: high quality, attention to detail, and author friendly flexibility.
BACKLOG DISSOLVED! (2015-10-07)
Our backlog in printing is finally dissolved. Currently accepted papers are published online within two weeks and they should appear in print after approx. 8-9 months.
CHEAPER PAGE CHARGES (2015-07-30)
Thanks to a change of printing technique to more efficient and cheaper but simultaneously of better quality we were able to diminish the obligatory page charges to EUR 22 (VAT included) for each page over the 10 free pages and EUR 44 (VAT included) per colour figure (up to full page size).
CHANGES IN EDITORIAL STAFF (2014-12-29)
After one and two terms, respectively, of distinguished service as Editors of Acta Palaeontologica Polonica, Michael J. Benton (and his Associate Editor Felix G. Marx) and Jarosław Stolarski are stepping down from the positions. They are replaced by Andrzej Kaim and Przemysław Gorzelak responsible for invertebrate and palaeobotanical submissions and Mark D. Uhen and Stephen Brusatte responsible for vertebrate submissions.
Following changes on journal market, as for January 1st , 2015 reprints are no longer supplied for free. Instead, high quality pdf files (print ready) will be available free of charge. For the papers submitted before January 1st, 2015 the free 25 reprints will be still supplied or the high quality pdf file as an alternative. The reprints are still available, in multiples of 25, at the prices stated in the instructions for authors.
EDITORS' CHOICE (2014-12-29)
Starting from the 1st issue of the volume 60 APP introduces a new section titled “Editors’ Choice”. This section is envisaged as a selection of papers of wide topical interest significantly increasing the knowledge of the fossil record and/or evolutionary processes. It will typically contain 2-4 papers (c. 15% of the volume) per issue which will be fast-tracked after acceptance for the speediest possible publication.
