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:

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.
