PEER-REVIEWED OHIOPYLE CONFERENCE GUIDEBOOK

 

The one-year delay in the 85th Field Conference has opened the opportunity for a guidebook rich in research articles highlighting geologic research in the State, particularly projects that have been completed or are in progress in the region covered by the 2020-21 conference. Articles from students and early-career geoscientists are particularly welcome. The articles can be on any geoscience or related topic including geologic mapping, trail guides, environmental geology, history of geology, geoarcheology, and geologic education. 

 

We will be experimenting with a guidebook review process that would allow for the articles to count as published papers and be cited as peer-reviewed science. Authors are encouraged to assemble a guidebook manuscript and submit it for peer review to two colleagues who will comment on the quality of the data and interpretations and make suggestions on how it can be improved. The author then revises the manuscript according to the reviews and submits the entire package including original manuscript, reviews, and revised manuscript to Kristen Hand by Friday June 4, 2021. Specific guidelines for article format, construction of figures, citation of references, and the submission process are forthcoming.
