Fossil Record (FR) will change publisher. Our collaboration with Copernicus will end on 31 December 2021 due to a new public procurement, which had to be carried out by the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin as a public institution. We sincerely thank Copernicus for the successful and trustworthy collaboration for so many years! From 1 January 2022 onwards, Fossil Record will be published by Pensoft. The Museum für Naturkunde Berlin will remain the publishing institution. We are looking forward to a successful cooperation!

Submissions that are currently in production at Copernicus Publications will be published in Volume 24 as planned. Publications that are still in review will be finalized and, if accepted, will be redirected to Pensoft for publication. Submission to Fossil Record at Copernicus Publications will be closed on 14 December 2021. Please submit your manuscript at https://fr.pensoft.net/ from this day forward.
