Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
  • 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). Your manuscript can, however, be published as preprint before submission to Sedimentologika. We actually strongly encourage this practice. EarthArXiv ( is a perfect platform for this.
  • Your submission is under one single file (Microsoft Word, PDF, or Open Office), double-spaced lines, lines and pages numbered, with figures and tables embedded in the text where appropriate AND uploaded separately. Please format your manuscript using the Sedimentologika templates (see Manuscript Guidelines > 1. Submission checklist > 1.3. Manuscript file).
  • Bibliographic references are compliant with the American Psychological Association (APA) format and follow the I4OC - Initiative for Open Citations' principles.
  • Supplementary material should be uploaded as single file
  • You have joined a cover letter to support your manuscript submission : one page letter summarizing the main finding of the article and why it is relevant, and suggesting reviewers for the editor to select and to avoid (max. 2).

Author Guidelines

The manuscript should adhere to the journal scope and code of conduct. 

Particular attention should be paid to:

- Reproducibility: a clear description of how, where, and when data were collected and processed. Script codes, analysis parameters, and standard references should be provided either in the manuscript, as appendices to the manuscript, or through publicly-available platforms (e.g., GitHub, Zenodo, Pangaea). Raw data should also be made available for reproducibility purposes unless unequivocal confidentiality agreement(s) preventing the authors from doing so can be substantiated.

- Accessibility: color blindness-friendly themes shall be granted in figures.  Online tools are available to check for this (e.g., Coblis).

- Ethics: the manuscript should be original and with appropriate citation of non-original work.

Check out the Manuscript Guidelines when preparing your submission.
