Publications

DCO researchers have contributed more than 1400 publications to the scientific literature. DCO publications together form the Bibliography of Contributions to the DCO, a collective body of work that stands as testament to the program's significant advances in the field of deep carbon science.

The Bibliography of Contributions to the DCO is available in the DCO Publications Browser, where users can filter results by author, publication, subject area, and other characteristics.

DCO is also producing synthesis publications that integrate research conducted across the four science communities to realize a new understanding of deep carbon science. These include three books and a number of articles, special issues, and review papers.

DCO aims to make its publications broadly available, and therefore encourages scientists to publish open access whenever possible.
