Paludicola is a peer-reviewed journal published under the auspices of the Rochester Institute of Vertebrate Paleontology (RIVP) since 1996. It is intended to serve as an ‘in house’ publication for students and professional paleontologists who are not affiliated with institutions that provide such a publication. The journal is intended as an outlet for papers on any aspect of vertebrate paleontology. Manuscript submission is not limited to associates of the RIVP. 

Paludicola is published twice annually (October and April). Contact the editors for information on the submission deadline for the next issue.
