Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue of the Geosciences Journal (ISSN 2076-3263) is dedicated to the publication and discussion of research articles, letters, reviews, and communications on all aspects of the Earth and Planetary Sciences and technologies that provide insights into and address challenges in the Earth system. This comprises the solid earth, the atmosphere, the hydrosphere, and the biosphere, as well as related topics in the planetary and space sciences. In addition, it will provide an advanced forum for contributions on Earth history, natural hazards, geology-related environmental problems, and geoethics that reflect the wide scope and societal, educational, cultural, and, in general, human implications of the cross-cutting nature of these issues. Manuscripts for this important Special Issue of Geosciences will be accepted by the editorial office, the editor-in-chief, and editorial board members by invitation only.

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 papers will be 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. Geosciences 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 1000 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.
