Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Water–rock interactions play an important role in water geochemical compositions and potential water quality issues. These interactions include the chemical and thermal reactions between groundwater or surface water and rocks, sediments, minerals, or alluvium. Water chemistry is predominantly affected by rock weathering processes. This Special Issue welcomes submissions on new and innovative research related to water–rock interactions. Field investigations, laboratory experiments, or geochemical modeling can all be used to identify the geochemical processes that occur at the interface of water–rock interactions. The aim of this Special Issue is to share state-of-the-art investigations on water–rock interactions.

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.
