Interests: petrology, geochronology, geochemistry and geological mapping of the Korean Peninsula as well as East Asian Continent; the Precambrian to mesozoic tectono-metamorphic-magmatic evolution of the Sino-Korean Peninsula as well as East Asian Continent
Interests: mineral resouce exploration, mining, benefication, smelting and the utilization of overseas and domestic mineral resources; mineral resouce mapping of the Korean Peninsula as well as East Asian Continent; the Precambrian to mesozoic tectono-metamorphic-magmatic evolution of the Sino-Korean Peninsula as well as East Asian Continent
Geological and tectonic evolution of the East Asian Collage has been a major topic in the global geological community. East Asian Continent comprises a complex assembly of allochthonous continental lithospheric crustal fragments (terranes) by volcanic arcs, and other terranes of oceanic, accretionary and rifting complex origins located at the various zones of convergence and divergence between the Eurasian and Pacific Plates. Especially, recent studies have been documented with a lot of important information due to the advanced analysis equipment technology development of geological dating, geochemistry and isotope studies with precise geological surveys in the Precambrian and Mesozoic. Accordingly, many discussions have been actively conducted on Geological and Tectonic Evolution of the East Asian Collage, and many models of tectonics have been proposed. However, there is still a lot of controversy regarding the crustal evolutional history and the geological correlation between East Asia countries.
In this respect, this special issue will handle studies of the Precambrian and Mesozoic geologic and tectonic histories of East Asia in geochemical and geochronological perspective and followings research topics will contribute this special issue.
- Geochronological and geochemical studies on igneous rocks and its tectonic implication.
- Detrital zircon provenance from the Precambrian or Mesozoic terrane and its tectonic implication.
- Precambrian or Mesozoic mineral deposition and its metallogeny.
- Reviews in Precambrian or Mesozoic geology of East Asia.
- All others related to this special issue.

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.
