Notice to authors
The European Journal of Mineralogy publishes original papers, review articles and letters dealing with the mineralogical sciences s.l. These include primarily mineralogy, petrology, geochemistry, crystallography and ore deposits, as well as environmental, applied and technical mineralogy. Nevertheless, papers in any related field, including cultural heritage, will be considered.
Manuscripts may be submitted in English, French, German or Italian. However, authors are reminded that English is the preferred language of scientific communication in an international journal. Although the European Journal of Mineralogy employs an English-language style editor and offers editorial help, authors are urged to have their manuscripts read, before submission, by a colleague whose native tongue is English in order to expedite the review process.
Beginning with 2012 all EJM manuscripts must be submitted through the EJM Manuscript Management System (MMS) to be accessed via the EJM journal website: www.schweizerbart.de/journals/ejm ->submit manuscripts online.

During the submission process please choose the relevant chief editor or special issue section to properly submit your results to the chief editor or special issue of your choice.
