Other Formatting Considerations

We recommend that authors read these additional considerations before submitting their manuscripts.

Back to author instructions >


Headings. After the manuscript title, GEUS Bulletin can accommodate up to four levels of headings, as follows:

  1. Subheading 1 e.g. 1. Introduction
  2. Subheading 2 e.g. 1.1 Stable isotope analyses
  3. Subheading 3 e.g. 1.1.1 Oxygen isotopes
  4. Subheading 4 e.g. 2000 BP to present day

Linked references. Remove any linked references or captions in the word document before submitting a manuscript.

Footnotes. These can be used as part of a table, but not in the main text.

Lists. Lists are of two types: short phrases embedded within the text or longer lists, indented for emphasis.

This is an example of a short list embedded within the text, which (1) consists of phrases and short sentences, with (2) numbers in parentheses.

This is an example of a long list, comprised of:

  1. A list of longer sentences or paragraphs preceded by a number and a full stop.
  2. Items in this list can consist of multiple sentences or even a paragraph of text.

Palaeontological illustrations. All palaeontological specimens collected under the auspices of Geology of Denmark Survey (DGU), Geology of Greenland Survey (GGU) or Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland (GEUS) should retain their respective numbering and catalogue number from the Geological Museum, which represents the final repository, e.g. ‘MGUH 19493 from GGU 316062’. The host stratum and locality should be given in the caption.

Spelling of geological units named after localities in Greenland. Formal lithostratigraphical units and names of magmatic intrusions named after localities in Greenland should remain unchanged even if the eponymous locality names have since been changed following Greenlandic orthography.
