Announcing : The Journal of International Kimberlite Conference Extended Abstracts 

The scarcity of copies of extended abstract volumes from historical International Kimberlite Conferences will soon create a serious problem in the community's ability to continue to access and accurately cite some of the valuable material in these abstracts, that may have never been published in accessible and citable scientific journals. To address this problem the International Kimberlite Conference Advisory Committee sanctioned the University of Alberta Library to create a new on-line, Open Access journal: The Journal of International Kimberlite Conference Extended Abstracts: http://ikcabstracts.com

Extended abstracts (currently up to 6 IKC are available) are available as downloadable Pdf documents of whole volumes or single abstracts. In due course the journal will include all IKCs and each abstract will be assigned its own DOI to enable fully traceable citation.


12 IKC will be held in Yellowknife, NT, Canada on 16-20 August 2021. For more information and to join the mailing list, please visit the website.
