An International Journal of Quaternary Research

An international journal specializing in Quaternary research.

Boreas has been published since 1972. Articles of wide international interest from all branches of Quaternary research are published. Biological as well as non-biological aspects of the Quaternary environment, in both glaciated and non-glaciated areas, are dealt with: Climate, shore displacement, glacial features, land forms, sediments, organisms and their habitat, and stratigraphical and chronological relationships.

Anticipated international interest, at least within a continent or a considerable part of it, is a main criterion for the acceptance of papers.

Besides articles, short items like discussion contributions and book reviews are published.

Norsk Geologisk Tidsskrift


Norsk geologisk tidsskrift

The main journal for Norwegian geological research, distributed to all members of the Norwegian Geological Society and internationally.

Norwegian Journal of Geology has been issued by the Norwegian Geological Society (Norsk Geologisk Forening) since 1905. Its general aim is to publish research articles, review articles, notes and discussions with relevance to the varied and complex geology of Norway, and contiguous areas, the Arctic regions and adjacent offshore areas. Accordingly, scientific papers for all geological, geophysical and geochemical disciplines are considered for publication.

Although the papers in the journal relate to Norwegian geology, the contributors, referees and readership are widely international.

The Editor-in-Chief for 1999 is Senior Geologist at IKU Petroleum Research.

Grana is an international journal of palynology and aerobiology.

Grana, originally published as Grana Palynologica, was founded in 1954 by Professor Gunnar Erdtman. It is published under the auspices of the Scandinavian Palynological Collegium (CPS) in affiliation with the International Association for Aerobiology (IAA).Grana publishes original papers, mainly on ontogony (morphology, and ultrastructure of pollen grains and spores of Eucaryota and their importance for plant taxonomy, ecology, phytogeography, paleobotany, etc.) and aerobiology. Aerobiology involves studies of airborne biological particles, such as pollen, spores, etc., and their launching, dispersal and final deposition. The significance of these particles in medicine (allergology) and plant pathology is of particular interest.

Scandinavian Journal of Public Health


Scandinavian Journal of Public Health presents articles on epidemiology, health services research, preventive medicine, community health and related subjects.

Scandinavian Journal of Public Health presents to an international audience research papers on the functioning of welfare states and the sociomedical problems encountered. The Scandinavian countries still enjoy a high level of publicly funded social and medical aid for all citizens. All these countries have a relatively long life expectancy, low infant mortality, etc. Another obvious feature of the Scandinavian research environment is the availability for epidemiologists of well functioning registers, historical and present, where individuals are easily followed up and where the ethical problems with personal integrity are solved. Contributions from other countries are increasingly common and welcome as the developed countries will have welfare systems and problems and all developing countries are building them up.

Most of the journal’s articles are based upon original research accepted after peer review, but the journal also publishes leading articles concerning research on policy matters, as well as reviews, and letters to the editor.

The journal deals with the following subjects: epidemiology, health services research, preventive medicine, community health, hazardous alcohol and drug use, health and ways of living, health and social policy, and health economics.

Students and researchers in social medicine, epidemiology, public health, health services research and preventive medicine.
