Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Over the past decade, there have been dramatic advances in the global research of the key role that large igneous provinces (LIPs) play in a range of major geodynamic processes, including the formation and evolution of the lithosphere and mantle, supercontinent breakup, dramatic climate change (including mass extinctions, major regional topographic changes, and the formation of major ore deposits) and oil/gas exploration. This Special Issue welcomes manuscripts that represent research progress in any of these aspects, including the discovery of new LIPs or the dramatic expansion of known LIPs.

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.

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.
