After reviewing these guidelines, submit manuscripts online using the GEUS Bulletin online submission system. Step-by-step instructions are available during the submission process. Track the progress of your submission by logging into GEUS Bulletin website. Use the register/login links at the top right corner of this site.
You should have the following information ready when you make a submission:
Login details for the online submission system. First time users will be invited to register to access the submission system.
Content type. Authors will be prompted to choose an article type from a drop-down list. Please refer to the article types section, before beginning your submission.
Full and correct names and affiliations of all the co-authors. It is the submitting author’s responsibility to check all names and affiliations for correct spelling.
Names and contact details for at least 4 reviewers. Add these under "Comments to the Editor" on the first screen of the submission system. Suggested reviewers must not have a competing interest in the study. For example, authors should avoid suggesting anyone with whom they have had an active collaboration in the past two years, or anyone from the same institution or research group. Exceptions are made for long authorship lists, consisting of large consortia. In such cases, a suggested reviewer and co-author may have an overlapping publication history as part of a large consortium, but must not have worked together, personally.
Other metadata from your manuscript file. Besides the author names and affiliations, you will also be prompted to enter 5 keywords and the abstract.
Additional information. The manuscript file should contain a funding statement, a list of author contributions, a declaration of any competing interests, and a list of any additional material (i.e. supplementary files or links to online datasets).
You will need to upload the following files during the submission:
A single manuscript file. For an initial submission (i.e. first submission of the manuscript, intended for peer review), authors can submit a single .docx or .pdf file containing all the article text (title, authors, affiliations, keywords, abstract, main text, acknowledgements, references, additional information) and display items (figures and tables). Place display items after the references or where they are first cited in the text.
Any supplementary files. When submitting supplementary files authors are asked to include a file with the name readme.docx that briefly describes the contents of each file.
Note that additional files are required when resubmitting a manuscript after the peer review stage. This is referred to as a final submission.
As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with the following items. Submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
I declare myself as the corresponding author and will act as spokesperson for all authors during the review process and beyond. I understand that it is my responsibility to inform all co-authors of the manuscript’s progress following submission.
The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
I declare no competing interests, real or perceived concerning myself or any of the co-authors. Or, I have declared these as part of the submission, under Additional Information. It is the corresponding author’s responsibility to declare such interests on behalf of all authors upon submission.
The manuscript adheres to the content and formatting guidelines described in the journal’s author instructions.
We encourage authors to make their data and methods as open as possible, by one of the following methods:
Provide a (DOI) link to the original data or code in a data repository as part of the manuscript.
Upload data or code to the GEUS Bulletin Dataverse for free. When you submit your manuscript, under "Comments to the Editor", indicate that you wish to upload your data or code to the GEUS Bulletin Dataverse.
After logging in, click "add dataset" to upload your files and provide all required metadata. Datasets can be submitted any time after your initial submission.
If you do not have a GEUS email, contact the editor handling your submission who will arrange for the files to be uploaded on your behalf.
All datasets are reviewed for completeness by a member of the editorial team and are published when the article is accepted, or earlier, by arrangement with the author. All published datasets receive a DOI, providing a permanent link between the dataset and the corresponding research article.
Published datasets can be updated as more data become available. All versions will be preserved.
