Yunker 7137 Wallace Drive, Brentwood Bay British Columbia, Canada V8M 1G9 Aims and scope Organic Geochemistry was established in response to the need for a specialized medium for the rapid publication of research in this highly interdisciplinary field. Currently, Organic Geochemistry serves as the only dedicated medium for the publication of research on all phases of geochemistry in which organic compounds play a major role. Contributions covering a wide spectrum of subjects in the geosciences broadly based on organic chemistry (including molecular and isotopic geochemistry), and involving geology, biogeochemistry, environmental geochemistry, chemical oceanography and hydrology are welcome. The scope of the journal includes research involving petroleum (including natural gas), coal, organic matter in marine and non-marine sediments, organic-rich rocks and soils, and the role of organics in the geochemical cycling of the elements. Sedimentological, paleontological and organic petrographic studies will also be considered for publication, provided they are geochemically oriented. We welcome newer applications and extensions of molecular organic geochemistry which might include archaeological chemistry, biogeochemical ecology, biomolecular paleontology and molecular stratigraphy. We also see an appropriate extension into the characterization and significance of petroleum reservoir inhomogeneities and the storehouse of information to be elucidated using compound specific isotope techniques. Papers cover the full range of research activities in organic geochemistry, and include comprehensive review articles, technical communications, discussion/reply correspondence and short technical notes. Individual issues of Organic Geochemistry are devoted to papers presented at symposia.
