Special Issue "New Theoretical and Applied Advances in Paleolimnology"
A special issue of Geosciences (ISSN 2076-3263).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 April 2018).
In the past few years, there have been significant advances made in the development and application of new approaches in paleolimnology. Our toolbox for exploring lacustrine archives is growing at a rapid pace and it now seems timely to dedicate a Special Issue focusing on these advances to make them more widely known within our research community and to the scientific public at large. The scope and diversity of these advances are vast, ranging from the development of various molecular techniques applied to the study of lake sediment contents, to novel numerical approaches used to analyze paleolimnological data, to improved equipment for sampling lake sediments. The purpose of this special issue is therefore to provide an open-access platform specifically dedicated to presenting a coherent collection of examples of the various recent advances in paleolimnology. Additionally, manuscripts presenting paleolimnological research conducted on lake-types that have seldom been investigated through this approach (e.g., human-made reservoirs, pluvial lakes, peatlands), or on lakes located in regions where paleolimnological studies are rare or lacking are also welcome. Several article types can be submitted, including those presenting original research, as well as review, opinion, concept and essay papers on any topic related to the theme of the Special Issue.
It is recommended that authors approach the Guest Editor at an early stage about possible submissions to verify the appropriateness of their potential contributions. If appropriate, an abstract will be requested, and the corresponding author will be required to submit the full manuscript online by the deadline of 30 April 2018.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Geosciences is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
