Policy: The Kentucky Caver will publish articles as submitted with only cosmetic changes to language. Changes in content to your submissions are subject to your pre-publication approval. The Kentucky Caver will consider all articles related to wild and urban underground exploration, karst hydrology/ geophysics/ geology, rope safety, rope work, equipment, navigation, surveying, local conservation activities including local water purity studies and the global chemistry related to geological waters, species protection and behavior studies, especially those of and related to our brother chiroptera. We also accept opinion pieces on anything relating to caving. We will consider submissions from anyone in any location.
Format: The Kentucky Caver is uniquely formatted to bridge the functional gap between the versatility, searchablity and diversity afforded by HTML and the permanence and  historical perpetuity afforded by paper and electronic paper formats. The KY caver is HTML that has been paginated to print on 8.5x11 paper. Once published, material at a particular volume and page number will not be subject to modification. To produce a hard copy of the KY caver you will have to print a page at a time from your web browser.

Advertising: We are going to limit commercial items, but if you would like to advertise in the Kentucky Caver, please contact the editors.
