Fossil Imprint (published by the Natural History Museum, Prague, Czech Republic).
Fossil Imprint (formerly Acta Musei Nationalis Pragae, Series B Historia Naturalis) is an international open access journal, publishing original papers and reviews of any length from all areas of paleontology and related disciplines, such as palaeoanthropology, biostratigraphy, palynology, and archaeobotany/zoology.
All taxonomic groups are treated, including plants, invertebrates, vertebrates, microfossils, and ichnofossils, with a special emphasis on terrestrial and post-Palaeozoic marine biota.
