Annals of Carnegie Museum

Annals of Carnegie Museum is a quarterly journal that publishes peer-reviewed short and medium-length original scientific contributions in organismal biology, earth sciences, and anthropology, in 40 by 52.5 pica format (168 by 220 mm or 6-5/8 by 8-5/8 inches). Subject matter must be relevant to Carnegie Museum of Natural History scientific sections or Powdermill Nature Reserve (PNR), preferably with connection to the Carnegie collection and/or personnel. Carnegie Museum staff and research associates receive publication priority, but others are encouraged to submit papers, especially those manuscripts explicitly based on the Carnegie collection. Direct inquires regarding the appropriateness of a specific contribution can be sent to the editors, J. R. Wible ( or J. E. Rawlins (
