Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (15 June 2020).
2. Institute of Petroleum Geology and Geophysics, Koptyug Ave., 3, Novosibirsk, 630090, Russia
Interests: geology of Siberia and Arctic region; tectonics; geodynamics; geochronology; petrology and geochemistry of igneous and metamorphic rocks; plate paleoreconstructions
The Siberian Craton is one of the main structures of North Asia and the Eurasian Plate. The formation of its basement has a long history in the Archean and Paleoproterozoic. During the Mesoproterozoic, most of the Siberian Craton, with the exception of the Aldan and Anabar shields, was overlapped by marine sediments, and tectonic activity at the margins began in the late Neoproterozoic and continued in the Paleozoic and Mesozoic with the formation of accretion and collision orogens. This Special Issue will cover a broad range of topics related to the problem of the formation of magmatic and metamorphic complexes of the Siberian Craton at different stages of its evolution. For this Special Issue, we invite researchers to present new petrological, mineralogical and geochemical data related to the formation of the basement of the Siberian Сraton and the orogenic belts at its margins.

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. 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 1800 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.
