Dear Colleagues,

The release of Special Issue ‘Geology and palaeontology of the James Ross Basin, Antarctic Peninsula’ will be extended into September 2019. Each article will be published online once its completion of editing.

The main purpose of this volume is to summarize some of the recent exciting advances in our knowledge of this key area for Antarctic geology and palaeobiology; reviews, updates, and regional studies are particularly welcome. Up to now, we have received ten manuscripts. I think this special issue will be promising and of great interest for the wider Antarctic community.

We appreciate all of the guest editors, authors and reviewers for their great efforts and dedication. We have a wonderful cooperation with the three guest editors:
