PAGES Magazine

PAGES Magazine (formerly PAGES news) is PAGES' main publication, a free paleoscience magazine published two to three times a year. Our magazine aims to communicate paleoscience in an accessible and informative style. The articles are not peer-reviewed. Members of our community propose topics for a magazine issue and volunteer as guest editors. Together with the PAGES office, they solicit contributions and review them for scientific content and style. You can read the guest editors and authors guidelines here.

Ethics in publishing

Ethical policies are a fundamental element of our commitment to the scholarly community, to ensure rigorous scientific content, and that authors receive credit for their work. PAGES follows the Core Practices of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). PAGES Series Editors and Guest Editors ensure that all manuscripts received by their journal are reviewed for their scientific content without regard to sex, gender, race, religion, citizenship, etc. of the authors.


To plagiarise means to claim someone else's ideas or words as one's own.

Plagiarism includes, but is not limited to, the acts of:
(1) (Near-)verbatim copying or purposely paraphrasing portions of another author's work;
(2) (Near-)verbatim copying portions of one's own published work (self-plagiarism);
(3) Using or citing someone else’s ideas, words or illustrations that are not common knowledge without properly acknowledging the source.

Plagiarism in all its forms is an act of fraud and constitutes a serious ethical offence. No plagiarized articles will be published in Past Global Changes Magazine. Consequently, all submitted manuscripts are screened for plagiarism and appropriate measures will be taken in such cases.

PAGES is a member of Similarity Check, a multi-publisher initiative to screen published and submitted content for originality.

PAGES uses the iThenticate software to detect instances of overlapping and similar text in submitted manuscripts.

The final decision on whether a manuscript should be rejected because of plagiarism remains in the hands of the Series Editors.

When you see the “Similarity Check Deposited” or “Similarity Check Depositor” logos, be reassured that the publisher whose content you are reading is committed to actively combating plagiarism and publishing original research.

Using AI in scientific writing

Authors can apply artificial intelligence (AI) and AI-assisted technologies with human oversight and control to improve readability and language, but not to replace key researcher tasks such as interpreting data or drawing scientific conclusions.

When authors use AI-technologies in the writing process, authors must:

  • Carefully review and edit the result(s);
  • Not list AI and AI-assisted technologies as an author or co-author, or cite AI as an author;
  • Acknowledge the use of AI by following the instructions below.

Authors must disclose the use of AI and AI-assisted technologies in the writing process by adding a statement at the end of their manuscript in a new section titled DISCLAIMER’. 
Statement: During the preparation of this work the author(s) used [NAME TOOL / SERVICE] in order to [REASON]. After using this tool/service, the author(s) reviewed and edited the content as needed and take(s) full responsibility for the content of the publication.’
