Uneingeschränkter Zugang


Mineralogia (ISSN: 1899-8291, e-ISSN: 1899-8526), a free open access journal, publishes original research and review papers from broad fields of geochemistry, mineralogy, petrology, technical, experimental and applied mineralogy, and environmental sciences. Mineralogia (formerly Mineralogia Polonica) is an English language journal with 50 years long tradition. The journal’s subtitle, Geochemical, Mineralogical and Petrological Research, indicates the open character of the journal. The regular series Mineralogia is accompanied by the irregular series, including Mineralogia - Special Papers (containing conference abstracts) and Thematic Collections.

  • Publications in the scope of widely understood mineralogical sciences (mineralogy, petrology, geochemistry, environmental sciences, applied mineralogy, etc.)
  • Original research and review papers, letters (a short research paper), short notes (a brief communication), book reviews, and letters to editors with comments on papers published in Mineralogia

First issue of Mineralogia Polonica, the official Journal of the Mineralogical Society of Poland, was published in 1970 soon after foundation of the Society in 1969. Mineralogia Polonica, publishing in English from its beginning, has been very important for development of mineralogical sciences in Poland, exchange of scientific journals and international collaboration. Based on a long discussion with our colleagues from abroad we have noticed that the title suggests that the journal is focused on local mineralogical problems from Poland. To avoid this misunderstanding we have decided to modify the title and accordingly the journal cover. The new and simple title Mineralogia (with subtitle Geochemical, Mineralogical and Petrological Research) indicates an open character of the journal. We intend to publish original papers, review papers and short notes from broad fields of geochemistry, mineralogy, petrology, technical, experimental and applied mineralogy, environmental geochemistry and mineralogy. We have also decided to introduce changes in the organization of our Editorial Board to ensure high scientific level of journal and relatively short time-span between paper submission and publication.

The journal facilitates communication and promotes scientific research in the scope of:

  • descriptive mineralogy
  • experimental mineralogy
  • igneous petrology
  • metamorphic petrology
  • sedimentary petrology
  • hard rock geochemistry
  • geochronology and petrochronology
  • environmental mineralogy and geochemistry
