Full instructions for manuscript submissions will be posted online at Convention presentations of Journal submissions are encouraged but not required.

Beginning with the 2012 Annual Convention in Austin, Texas, the GCAGS will publish a yearly collection of formally peer-reviewed articles in a new GCAGS Journal Series: Gulf Coast Geology.

The Journal series will focus on all geoscientific aspects of the greater Gulf of Mexico region. A hardbound journal will be produced each year in concert with the traditional GCAGS Transactions volume, and both will be distributed at the yearly convention. An editorial board, which will serve for a 3-year term, will oversee the review process.

Each Journal volume will consist of 10 to 20 articles selected by an editorial board from among the extended abstracts submitted specifically for the Journal each year. The volume will also contain invited papers. Like Transactions contributors, authors of journal articles will make either an oral or poster presentation at the annual convention.
