Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 1.459 Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP):
SNIP measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field.
SCImago Journal Rank (SJR): 2.163 SCImago Journal Rank (SJR):
SJR is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same. SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and a qualitative measure of the journal’s impact.
Impact Factor: 3.962 (2018) Impact Factor:
The Impact Factor measures the average number of citations received in a particular year by papers published in the journal during the two preceding years.

Description

Quaternary Geochronology is an international journal devoted to the publication of the highest-quality, peer-reviewed articles on all aspects of dating methods applicable to the Quaternary Period - the last 2.6 million years of Earth history. Reliable ages are fundamental to place changes in climates, landscapes, flora and fauna - including the evolution and ecological impact of humans - in their correct temporal sequence, and to understand the tempo and mode of geological and biological processes. There is growing scientific appreciation of the complexity of the Quaternary Period. This has increased the demand on geochronological techniques to deliver increasingly more accurate and precise ages, which underpin attempts to determine the causes and consequences of events at a variety of temporal and spatial scales.



Some Quaternary dating methods are well established, while others are in the early stages of development. Quaternary Geochronology will provide a readily accessible platform to rapidly communicate the latest developments and applications in these emerging fields, as well as improvements made to more traditional methods of age determination. New technological capabilities are providing a greater understanding of the underlying principles of age estimation and are stimulating innovative applications. Quaternary Geochronology will report the latest insights and discoveries to an inter-disciplinary audience concerned with events in the Quaternary Period.

Quaternary Geochronology will publish research in the following areas:
• Principles of geochronological methods
• Advances in methodology, analytical procedures and instrumentation
• Methodological standardisations and inter-laboratory comparisons
• Calibrations and comparisons of different methods
• Novel and groundbreaking applications in all fields of Quaternary research

We particularly encourage the submission of:
• Systematic and comprehensive studies in pure and applied contexts
• Integrated and inter-disciplinary applications of geochronological data
• Provocative and topical papers of immediate interest to a wide audience

The following contributions will be accepted:
• Original research papers and case studies
• Review papers
• Special thematic issues
• Viewpoint articles
• Letters to the Editors (including comments on papers published in Quaternary Geochronology)
• Book reviews
