In preparing to submit an abstract to GSA, you should first gather the following information:

A. Pick the meeting at which you would like to present your paper.

B. GSA meetings are usually built in part around some symposia or themes identified in the call for papers.  Determine if your paper would fit neatly under one of those topics.  (Even if   it does not, you can still submit for inclusion in the general discipline sessions.)

C. Determine under what discipline category your paper best fits. You may select up to three other relevant categories.
  The list of discipline categories includes:

  • Archaeological Geology
  • Coal Geology
  • Economic Geology
  • Engineering Geology
  • Environmental Geoscience
  • Geochemistry
  • Geochemistry Organic
  • Geoinformatics
  • Geology and Health
  • Geomicrobiology
  • Geomorphology
  • Geophysics/Tectonophysics/Seismology
  • Geoscience Education
  • Geoscience Information/Communication
  • History and Philosophy of Geology
  • Hydrogeology
  • Limnogeology
  • Marine/Coastal Science
  • Mineralogy/Crystallography
  • Neotectonics/Paleoseismology
  • Paleoclimatology/Paleoceanography
  • Paleontology, Biogeography/Biostratigraphy
  • Paleontology, Diversity, Extinction, Origination
  • Paleontology, Paleoecology/Taphonomy
  • Paleontology, Phylogenetic/Morphological Patterns
  • Petroleum Geology
  • Petrology, Experimental
  • Petrology, Igneous
  • Petrology, Metamorphic
  • Planetary Geology
  • Precambrian Geology
  • Public Policy
  • Quaternary Geology
  • Remote Sensing/Geographic Info System
  • Sediments, Carbonates
  • Sediments, Clastic
  • Stratigraphy
  • Structural Geology
  • Tectonics
  • Volcanology

D. Select your preferred mode of presentation: Oral, Poster, or Either (no preference). Please Note: The program organizers will do their best to fit you into your preferred mode. However, they will override your original mode selection if they feel your paper would fit well in a particular session with other compatible abstracts. The decision of the program organizers is final.

E. Title and Keywords
(1) Pick a title for your paper.
(2) Enter up to five keywords.

F. Have available the name and contact information for all of the authors. (Include their email addresses, please.). No more than 10 authors may be listed on a paper. Group names will not be accepted as an author.

G. Write the body of your abstract.
