This collection aims to cover contributions across multiple disciplines (tectonics and structural geology, petrology and geochemistry, sedimentology and basin analysis, geophysics and geomorphology), relevant to the history and present dynamics of the Alpine belt.
Aims and scope
The Swiss Journal of Geosciences publishes original research and review articles, with a particular focus on the evolution of the Tethys realm and the Alpine/Himalayan orogen. By consolidating the former Eclogae Geologicae Helvetiae and Swiss Bulletin of Mineralogy and Petrology, this international journal covers all disciplines of the solid Earth Sciences, including their practical applications.
The journal gives preference to articles that are of wide interest to the international research community, while at the same time recognising the importance of documenting high-quality geoscientific data in a regional context, including the occasional publication of maps. In addition to the three regular issues per year, thematic "Special Issues" are published at irregular intervals.
