Special Issues, Collections and Topics in MDPI journals
Over the past three decades, great advances in drilling and completion technologies (e.g., horizontal drilling coupled with large-scale, multistage hydraulic stimulation) have significantly promoted the cost-effective production of hydrocarbon (natural gas and crude oil) from low-permeability shale formations in the many countries (e.g., the USA, Canada, and China). The large volume of natural gas and liquid oil within the shale rocks has been the focus of hydrocarbon exploration and development in many petroliferous basins, which has also transformed the global energy outlook. However, there are still many scientific issues implicating the efficient extraction and sustainable development of these unconventional resources, including hydrocarbon generation, storage and accumulation in shale reservoir. Therefore, Minerals would like to announce a Special Issue on hydrocarbon generation and accumulation in unconventional shale reservoirs, and invites contributions to present up-to-date advances in relevant theory, experiments, and methods, as well as their successful applications in the exploration of these unconventional resources. Original research and review articles are welcome.

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 2000 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.
