Instruction for Authors
The Institute of Biopaleogeography named under Charles R. Darwin prepares and publishes on the Institute’s website the materials in the form of a book, as a form of report on travel and discovery expeditions on land and sea.
The thematic scope of these reports cover a wide range of natural sciences such as: geography, tourism, geology, palaeontology, chemistry and physics of seas and oceans, beauty of landscapes, richness of biodiversity (botany and zoology), environmental protection, ecology, human life and development.
Materials from such expeditions are accepted in MS WORD format, described and presented in English. The conclusions that should present interesting information and insights from the expeditions are very important.
The report must include: the title of manuscript, first name(s) in full and surname(s) of author/authors, abstract (a few sentences which should characterise the main purpose and place of the trip), introduction (description and characteristics of the trip, date), conclusions, list of literature, attachments.
The introduction must contain numbered photographs with a description as a form of travel documentation.
The attachments at the end of the report must contain the added photographs with numbering.
The materials will be published in full on the Institute’s website in PDF format.
