Statement on Journal of Paleontological Sciences

May 13, 2007

The Journal of Paleontological Sciences was recently announced by the Association of Applied Paleontological Sciences. Part of the journal’s mission is to publish information about fossils held in private collections. While it is important that scientifically significant fossils and fossil assemblages are described in an accessible format, the SVP has several concerns about the new journal. In response, members of the SVP Executive Committee have opened a dialogue with the sponsors of the new journal to revisit long-standing differences about fossils held in private collections.
