Palaeontographica Americana




Palaeontographica Americana (ISSN 0078-8546), begun in 1916, is an occasional publication, issued whenever content becomes available. It is similar in scope to Bulletins of American Paleontology, but is reserved for contributions for which full funding is provided by the author(s) and/or their institution(s), thus reducing the waiting time between submission and publication. Please see Information for Authors and/or contact the editor for more details.

PA is available by single-issue purchase and/or standing order, but not by prepaid subscription. Forthcoming titles are posted on this website, in the “back issues” list. Most issues published between 1966 and 1998 (nos. 6-60) are now also available as open access documents in the Biodiversity Heritage Library. Earlier volumes were sold to the now-defunct Johnson Reprint Corporation in 1962; although some of Johnson’s titles were assumed by Periodicals Service Company, this does not seem to have included PA, therefore nos. 1-5 are presently unavailable.
