Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue focuses on assessing the evolution of metamorphic rocks during tectonothermal events through the use of novel techniques and applications that demonstrate the way in which tectonothermal events are considered in a modern context. Papers dealing with a variety of different techniques and those that consider metamorphic events, e.g., P-T conditions, depth of metamorphism, age, timing of events, timing of crystallisation, degree of equilibrium, style of tectonism, stress and strain during metamorphism, chemically closed systems versus open systems, duration of metamorphism, P-T path, and rate of metamorphism, are welcome.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at 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.
