Special Issue Information
Mineral, fluid, and melt inclusions provide critical information on the physicochemical properties of geochemical systems that are unobtainable by other means. Combining inclusion petrography, compositional information, phase equilibria, and modeling gives unique insights into geologic spaces, times, and processes that are otherwise inaccessible and significantly contributes to advancement in diverse areas including petrology, mineral deposits, and hydrocarbon reservoir characterization, among others. This Special Issue, the second of its kind, will combine the latest advances in mineral, fluid, and melt inclusion analysis and interpretation with studies in the application of inclusions to a spectrum of geologic environments and investigations. Consequently, submissions spanning the breadth and depth of mineral, fluid, and melt inclusion science are encouraged.
Dr. Joel E. Gagnon
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 2000 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.
