The conference volume will be published in the Estonian Journal of Earth Sciences, a SCOPUS-indexed Open Access journal. Participants are invited to submit short papers (4 printed pages) on any aspect of the Ordovician System worldwide. The manuscripts will be peer-reviewed and, upon recommendation, published as regular 'Short Communication' papers. Please prepare your manuscript using the ‘short paper template’ that are available down below.

Alternatively, participants may submit abstracts (1 printed page), but note that these will not be indexed in SCOPUS and other citation databases as publications. No illustrations, references and acknowledgements are allowed in abstracts. Use the ‘abstract template’ file to prepare your abstract.
