The Institute of Physics - Centre for Science and Education at the Silesian University of Technology in Gliwice, Poland, publishes Geochronometria, a multi-disciplinary journal on Methods and Applications of Absolute Chronology.

The editorial team consists of the Editor-in-Chief - Grzegorz Adamiec, Honorary Editor-in-Chief - Anna Pazdur, Editor - Danuta Michczyńska and Technical Editor - Grzegorz Kazanowski. Geochronometria has an International Scientific Board and all papers are peer reviewed.

Geochronometria is aimed at integrating scientists developing different methods of absolute chronology and using them in different fields of earth and other natural sciences and archaeology. The methods in use are e.g. radiocarbon, stable isotopes, isotopes of natural decay series, optically stimulated luminescence, thermoluminescence, EPR/ESR, dendrochronology, varve chronology. The journal publishes papers that are devoted to developing the dating methods as well as studies concentrating on their applications in geology, palaeoclimatology, palaeobiology, palaeohydrology, geocgraphy and archaeology etc.

Similarity Check Plagiarism Screening System

The editorial board is participating in a growing community of Similarity Check System's users in order to ensure that the content published is original and trustworthy. Similarity Check is a medium that allows for comprehensive manuscripts screening, aimed to eliminate plagiarism and provide a high standard and quality peer-review process.
