Advances in Serpentinization
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 1 June 2024 | Viewed by 704
Interests: water-rock reactions; ultramafic rock systems; mineralogy; biogeochemistry; astrobiology
Serpentinization occurs essentially and ubiquitously in ultramafic systems under sufficient geochemical conditions. This water–rock reaction generates complex mineral records of alteration with great potential to inform petrological and geochemical evolution through time. The implications for sustaining a deep, potentially polyextreme biosphere are significant. We invite submissions ranging from mineralogical interpretations in serpentinization-influenced settings, biogeochemical data sets collected from diverse ultramafic-hosted systems, and experimental and modeling results for related questions.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. 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. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Minerals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
