The primary aim of ALBERTIANA is to promote the interdisciplinary collaboration and understanding among the members of the IUGS Subcommission on Triassic Stratigraphy. Within this scope ALBERTIANA serves both as a newsletter for the announcement of general information and as a platform for discussion of developments in the field of Triassic stratigraphy. ALBERTIANA thus encourages the publication of contributions in which information is presented relevant to current interdisciplinary Triassic research and at provides a forum for short, relevant articles such as: 
  • reports on work in progress and new publications
  • reports on conferences
  • news items
  • letters
  • literature reviews
  • comments

Opinions expressed in articles published in ALBERTIANA are those of the individual author(s) alone; they do not necessarily represent the views or the policy of either the Subcommission on Triassic Stratigraphy or the     
newsletter editor.

The Subcommission on Triassic Stratigraphy is part of the Commission on Stratigraphy of the International Union of Geological Sciences (IUGS).  Founded in 1961, the IUGS is one of the world's largest and most active non-governmental scientific organizations. The Union promotes and supports the study of geological problems of world-wide significance, and facilitates international and interdisciplinary cooperation in the earth sciences. A prominent member of the International Council of Scientific Unions, the  IUGS has more than 110 national members.
The printed version of ALBERTIANA is published twice a year by the Laboratory of Palaeobotany and Palynology Utrecht for the Subcommission on Triassic Stratigraphy. The production and distribution of Albertiana is sponsored by the LPP Foundation / Laboratory of Palaeobotany and Palynology, Budapestlaan 4, 3584 CD Utrecht, The Netherlands
