Albertiana is published biannually by the IUGS Subcommission on Triassic Stratigraphy. Since the first volume was published in 1983, Albertiana has served the Triassic research community and Triassic Subcommission providing a vehicle for dissemination of original research, a venue for the announcement of general information and as a platform for discussion of developments in the field of Triassic stratigraphy, biostratigraphy, paleontology, geochronology, magnetostratigraphy and other related disciplines. Five types of submissions are considered for publication in Albertiana:

Research Articles: Original research or review papers presenting new data or interpretations of data in areas of interest to Albertiana readers. Research articles must have an abstract and references cited sections and go through a formal peer-review process.

Reports and Reviews: Reports of the Triassic Subcommission business, past meetings, or in-depth reviews of selected books. These contributions are generally invited by the editor.

Forum: Letters to the STS community or a comment/reply on past Albertiana articles. The Editors will solicit a response (Reply) from the original authors if the Comment is approved.

Recent Literature: Compilations of citations and reference lists involving subjects of interest to the Albertiana readership (just about anything Triassic).

Announcements: General announcement of forthcoming meetings, events, deadlines. Decisions about publishing announcements will be based on relevancy to Albertiana readership and is at the discretion of the editor.

EDITORIAL POLICY AND REVIEW PROCCESS

News items, announcements, bibliographies, or other items of interest to the Triassic community will be reviewed by the editor for appropriateness for inclusion in Albertiana. Although submissions in this category will typically be automatically accepted for publication they may be returned to the submitter for editing and final polish.
Research articles submitted to Albertiana are typically sent to at least two reviewers, who are expected to treat the manuscript confidentially. Reviewers may choose to be identified to the authors or to remain anonymous. Reviewers are instructed to respond with constructive and fair feedback. All manuscripts are reviewed as rapidly as possible and the editorial team strives for a decision within 4-6 weeks of submission, although this is dependent on reviewer availability. The acceptance or rejection of a manuscript is based on the appraisal of the paper and reviews by the managing Associate Editor and Editor in Chief. Critical review determines the suitability and originality of the paper in Albertiana and the adequacy and conciseness of the presentation. Nearly all manuscripts are returned to the author with suggestions for revision, condensation, or final polish. Revised manuscripts should be returned to the editor as soon as possible for a final decision. All accepted manuscripts will be formatted and typeset to appear in the journal. Authors will be provided with digital page proofs of the typeset manuscript and offered the opportunity to make very minor last-minute corrections to the typeset manuscript.
