The Outer Carpathians belong to a great, 1300 km long mountain arc in Central Europe. They were deformed and thrust over the European Platform during the Alpine orogeny in the Cretaceous and Cenozoic, but the Outer Carpathian rocks also reflect a long and complex sequence involving Precambrian, Paleozoic, Mesozoic, and Cenozoic events. The geochemistry, geochronology, and petrology of the Precambrian and Paleozoic crystalline and volcanic rocks of the Outer Carpathian Realm have been studied in detail over the last decade, and significant progress has been made. These studies have led to an understanding of the evolution of this realm, but several crucial and topical questions remain unsolved.
This Special Issue should provide an opportunity to publish papers dealing with the geochemistry and petrology of the older crystalline rocks as well as younger sedimentary flysch sequences. We welcome specialized papers as well as overview papers, especially articles discussing the relationship between the petrology, mineralogy, geochemistry, geochronology, and geodynamic development of the complex orogene. Papers presenting controversial issues and different points of view are highly welcomed.

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.
