A special issue "Evolution of the Tibetan Neo-Tethys: Stratigraphy and Palaeogeography " was published in Journal of Asian Earth Sciences (Volume 204) on 28 July 2020. For decades, China has given sustained support to the geological study on the Qinghai-Xizang Plateau, a series of scientific research projects have been organized and conducted on the plateau and its adjacent areas. These projects promoted the research in many aspects including palaeontology. This special issue aims to exhibit and synthesize the new advances in biodiversity and ecosystems of the Neo-Tethyan region in the Qinghai-Xizang Plateau as well as to explore the co-evolution of biotas and Neo-Tethys. Needless to say, other scientific issues in relation to the study of Neo-Tethys are also helpfully accommodated.
