The German Quaternary Association (Deutsche Quartärvereinigung, DEUQUA e.V.) is the official union of German-speaking Quaternary scientists. The aim of the association is to support Quaternary science, to present it to the public, to intensify contacts to the applied sciences, and to provide advice to public and political authorities on issues related to Quaternary science. Furthermore, the association supports networking among Quaternary scientists and neighbouring disciplines at home and abroad.
DEUQUA Special Publications (DEUQUASP) publishes field guidebooks and special volumes related to Quaternary research. Volumes are usually organised and managed by guest editors. If you would like to propose a topic for a volume, or you wish to submit a manuscript to DEUQUASP, please first contact the chief editor.
Notice on the current situation in Ukraine
To show our support for Ukraine, all fees for papers from authors (first or corresponding authors) affiliated to Ukrainian institutions are automatically waived, regardless if these papers are co-authored by scientists affiliated to Russian and/or Belarusian institutions. The only exception will be if the corresponding author or first contact (contractual partner of Copernicus) are from a Russian and/or Belarusian institution, in that case the APCs are not waived.
In accordance with current European restrictions, Copernicus Publications does not step into business relations with and issue APC-invoices (articles processing charges) to Russian and Belarusian institutions. The peer-review process and scientific exchange of our journals including preprint posting is not affected. However, these restrictions require that the first contact (contractual partner of Copernicus) has an affiliation and invoice address outside Russia or Belarus.
