Bulletins of American Paleontology




Bulletins of American Paleontology (ISSN 0007-5779), one of the oldest peer-reviewed paleontological journals in the world, features high quality monographs in paleontology or in neontological subjects that impact paleontology (see Information for Authors). This serial publication is issued twice each year, and is a recognized outlet for especially lengthy papers, such as dissertations or the systematic sections of dissertations, that tend to be more difficult to publish in conventional journals. BAP is distributed widely to academic libraries and museums worldwide.

Since 1986, BAP has been the home of the series “Neogene Paleontology of the Northern Dominican Republic.” Originally funded by the Swiss National Science Foundation, the DR Project was one of the first large multidisciplinary projects to collect fossils through a continuous 5-10 million year Neogene Caribbean sequence. During three field seasons in 1978-1980, a small field party (led by John Saunders and Peter Jung of the Naturhistorisches Museum Basel, NMB) measured sections and collected large samples of microfossils and macrofossils at closely spaced intervals along nine river sections in the Cibao Valley. Age dates for the sections were determined through study of planktic foraminifera and nannofossils. The collections were accessioned by the NMB, and distributed to specialists for identification and preparation of systematic monographs. To date, 20 systematic monographs have been published in the Bulletins of American Paleontology. For more details, see NMITA (Neogene Marine Biota of Tropical America).

BAP is available by single-issue purchase or subscription to institutions or individuals. Forthcoming titles are posted on this website, in the “back issues” list. Most issues published between 1940 and 2002 (nos. 96-371) are now also available as open access documents in the Biodiversity Heritage Library. BAP nos. 1-95 are available from Periodicals Service Company.
