Igneous rocks, which are produced from magma crystallization, can provide us with significant information about the evolution of the Earth, tectonic setting and ore deposits. The chemistry of magma during the different processes changes from the source to crystallisation; this chemistry is controlled by processes such as source rocks, the rate of partial melting, depth, pressure and temperatures. The chemistry of magma differs according to the tectonic setting, such as oceanic ridge, continental rifts, hot spots and collision zone. Therefore, the geochemistry and isotope ratios of the magmatic rocks are the results of magma crystallisation and quenching from obvious tectonic regimes and magma sources during the Earth system evolution. Minerals is collecting new and interesting papers about the magma process, partial melting, differentiation, mixing and mineralization for this Special Issue. We wish to gather high-quality manuscripts; these will be reviewed by our expert reviewers. For more information, please contact the Minerals office or Guest Editor Hossein Azizi (Azizi1345@gmail.com; firstname.lastname@example.org).

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.
