Special Issue "Copper and Other Metallic Isotope Systems"

Interests: stable isotopes; non-traditional stable isotopes; isotopic systems; sedimentary geological systems
The field of metal isotope geochemistry has attracted great attention over the last two decades, and has benefited immensely from the introduction of MC-ICP-MS instruments. This advancement in instrumentation has finally brought the accurate and precise measurement of several novel isotope systems within our reach. As a result, studies that have leveraged metallic isotope systems (including Cu, Ni, Zn, Fe, Cr, and Mo) have made valuable contributions to our understanding of Earth systems and surface processes.
In this Special Issue we aim to highlight recent advances in geochemistry as informed by copper and other metal isotope systems as they are applied to various geological and environmental settings. Our vision for this Special Issue is not defined by a specific environment or geological time period, but is united by the measurement of copper or other metal isotope systems. We welcome original studies that highlight the value metal isotope systems provide in furthering our understand of natural processes, new approaches in metal isotope geochemistry (including novel analytical methods), high-resolution analysis (with an emphasis on in-situ laser ablation analysis), and experimental studies.

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.
