The AASP Foundation is a nonprofit organization that publishes a variety of research materials in the field of palynology. This includes the journal, “Palynology“,Contributions Series of monographs and other books that are published irregularly.

The journal Palynology has published manuscripts on all aspect of pre-Quaternary and Quaternary palynology since 1977. It was preceded by seven AASP issues of Geoscience and Man from 1968 to 1974. Back issues of both journals are available here on the Taylor and Francis website. Palynology is published four times a year, and includes biographical sketches of the authors. Volumes 1 (1977) to 33 (2009) were independently produced by the Society. As of 2010 (volume 34), Taylor and Francis took over the production of Palynology. Instructions to authors are available here.
