The term flysch was introduced by Studer in 1827 for sequences of sandstone and shales in the Swiss Alps. Flysch formations has been studied in detail over the last two centuries in many orogenic belts, including the Carpathians, Pyrenees, Apennines, Balkans, Himalayas, Andes, Appalachians and tectonically similar regions. These studies led to an understanding of the flysch origin and its role in evolution of non-collisional and collisional orogens. This Special Issue should provide the opportunity to revisit our present-day knowledge about flysch formations. We welcome specialized papers as well as overview papers, especially articles dealing with sedimentology, mineralogy, petrology, geochemistry, and the geochronology of flysch and its role in the geodynamic development of complex orogenes, as well as methods and applications related to the study of flysch sequences. These sequences also include wildflysch, olistostromes and mélanges. Papers presenting controversial issues and different points of view are highly welcomed.

Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process.
