The European Journal of Mineralogy (EJM) was founded to reach a large audience on an international scale and also to achieve closer cooperation of European countries in the publication of scientific results. The founding societies have set themselves the task of publishing a journal of the highest standard open to all scientists performing mineralogical research, in the widest sense of the term, all over the world. Contributions will therefore be published primarily in English.
EJM publishes original papers, review articles, and letters dealing with the mineralogical sciences: primarily mineralogy, petrology, geochemistry, crystallography, and ore deposits, but also biomineralogy and environmental, applied and technical mineralogy. Nevertheless, papers in any related field, including cultural heritage, will be considered.
At the end of the year, we would like to express our deep gratitude for our collaboration with all editors, referees, and authors in 2021. Please take a look at our Christmas card. Since our virtual office is closed from 23 Dec to 2 Jan and a significant number of editors and referees pause their work over the Christmas days, we extended all journal review deadlines: deadlines expiring shortly before or over Christmas have been extended to the week after and deadlines expiring after Christmas or over New Year have been extended to after New Year’s Day. Season's greetings and a happy New Year. Please stay healthy.
To show our support for Ukraine and in accordance with current European sanctions, we have introduced a range of measures relevant to our open-access publications process.
All fees for papers from authors (first, corresponding, or contact authors) affiliated to Ukrainian institutions are automatically waived, regardless of if these papers are co-authored by scientists affiliated to Russian and/or Belarusian institutions. The only exception to the waiver for Ukrainian authors will be if the corresponding or contact authors are from a Russian and/or Belarusian institution, in that case the APCs are not waived.
Due to restrictions for authors from Russian and Belarusian institutions that are necessary to comply with European sanctions, we recommend any authors from institutions in these countries to contact us on email@example.com for more information.
