The Holocene is dedicated to fundamental scientific research at the
interface between the long Quaternary record and the natural and
human-induced environmental processes operating at the Earth's surface
today.

The Holocene emphasizes environmental change over the last ca 11 500 years -
the most recent geological epoch and the most relevant time-span for
understanding the future environments of the human species. The journal
reflects the wide range of important and exciting interdisciplinary research
being carried out in this field, and its coverage is worldwide.

The Holocene encompasses the following subject areas:

* geological, biological and archaeological evidence for recent
environmental change;
* paleoclimatic and related environmental changes on timescales of
decades, centuries and millennia, including directly observed change;
* interdisciplinary studies of environmental history and prehistory;
* the use of modern analogues to elucidate the palaeo-environmental
record;
* techniques for reconstructing, dating, monitoring and modelling
environmental change;
* the nature, processes, mechanisms and causes of natural and
human-induced environmental change;
* the development of natural and cultural landscapes and ecosystems;
* palaeoenvironmental and historical perspectives on global environmental
changes and their effects;
* the prediction of future changes in the environment from the record of
the past.

Contributions from the following disciplines will be welcomed: anthropology,
archaeology, biology, climatology, ecology, environmental history,
environmental science, geo-chemistry, geography, geology, geomorphology,
geophysics, glaciology, hydrology, limnology, oceanography,
palaeoclimatology, palaeoecology, palaeontology and pedology.
