Palaeontology [online] is a website covering all aspects of palaeontology and associated disciplines at a level understandable to secondary/high-school students and interested adults. The site is updated monthly with short- to medium-length (~ 1,000–3,000 word) articles. These can be an introduction to any palaeontological or interdisciplinary field, showing the diversity of the science, or can outline events in the history of palaeontology. They can include summaries of recent findings/advances in rapidly evolving disciplines at the cutting edge of research, or can focus on a particular geographic region or time period. Also welcome are features based on the experience of being a palaeontologist – what life and work is really like as a fossil worker, how one might enter the field, and wha

Q. I'm looking for the journal "Palaeontology"... are you it? A. Simply put no we are not. The journal Palaeontology is produced by The Palaeontology Association and can be access online via Wiley Online Library. Backissues are freely available through the association's website: http://www.palass.org. Q. I have an unidentified fossil... can you help me in identification? A. We recommend you submit a question to Ask a biologist (http://www.askabiologist.org.uk/) along with a picture of the fossil (remember to include a scale and as much information as you can). They have dealt with these kind of requests in the past and have a network of active scientists waiting to help.

Palaeontology [online] is a website covering all aspects of palaeontology. The site is updated with articles about the cutting edge of research, by the researchers themselves. These are usually written by experts in the field, but are aimed at non-specialists. Articles vary widely in their content: some serve as an introduction to palaeontological or interdisciplinary fields, while others outline events in the history of palaeontology. Some contributions include summaries of recent findings and advances in rapidly evolving disciplines, and some focus on a particular geographic region or time period. Finally, some of our articles are based on the experience of being a palaeontologist – what life and work is really like as a fossil worker. Our online format allows researchers to explain the
