The Lethaia Foundation is a Scandinavian non-profit organization that supports scientific research in palaeontology and stratigraphy, mainly through the publication of the monograph series Fossils and Strata and the journal Lethaia.

Lethaia and Fossils and Strata go Open Access!


In keeping up with the times, the Lethaia Foundation has teamed up with Scandinavian University Press (Universitetsforlaget) to move our publication series into the fully Open Access realm. From 1 January 2022 and onward our journal series Lethaia and monograph series Fossils and Strata will thus be freely available to one and all online.

For authors, this means that publishing will entail an article processing charge (APC). However, as a non-profit organisation, the Lethaia Foundation guarantees that APCs will be kept at an absolute minimum – and for the first three years we have set aside funds to offer fees well below the actual publication costs!


We earnestly hope that authors and readers will continue to follow and support our publication series in this venture. Please help spread this information through appropriate and relevant channels.


P.S. Authors with already submitted manuscripts: The Lethaia Foundation will cover APCs, provided that your works are accepted for publication.
