Special issue for Maurizio Gaetani

Dear friends, colleagues and scholars of Maurizio Gaetani,

             Struck by his sudden passing on 19 December 2017, we have decided to dedicate to his memory a special issue of volume 125 (2019) of Rivista Italiana di Paleontologia e Stratigrafia  (Research in Paleontology and Stratigraphy) to honour his fruitful life of research and his grandeur as a man, a friend, a mentor and Editor of this journal.

We invite you to submit a manuscript for this special volume, a manuscript which may be focused on one of the subjects dealt with by Maurizio during his prolific scientific life, from the southern Alps to the Himalayas and Karakorum, from palaeontology to stratigraphy, and from geological mapping to oil exploration. The focus may also be on Iran, the country where he started his career in the sixties and concluded in the two thousands: ‘in a perfect circle’, as he used to say.

Feel free to deliver this message to anyone you think should be interested in remembering Maurizio with a contribution to this special volume.

The deadline for submitting your manuscript is 30 June 2018. Please follow the format of Rivista Italiana di Paleontologia e Stratigrafia (Research in Paleontology and Stratigraphy) and the Guidelines for authors at

https://riviste.unimi.it/public/journals/55/guideforAuthors.pdf

 

We are looking forward for your contributions

Kindest regards

Lucia Angiolini, Fabrizio Berra, Cristina Lombardo
