Manuscript subjects may include, but are not limited to, paleozoology, paleobotany, micropaleontology, biostratigraphy, systematics/taxonomy and specimen-based research, paleoecology (including trace fossils), paleoenvironments, paleobiogeography, and paleoclimate.

Special issues - The Eastern Paleontologist welcomes proposals for special issues that are based on a series of invitational articles or on conference or meeting proceedings.
