Proceedings Volume

The 11 IKC Proceedings Volume will be published as a Special Volume of the well-known international journal Mineralogy and Petrology, published by Springer, that had an IF (impact factor) of 1.6 in 2013. Mineralogy and Petrology (previously Tschermaks Mineralogische und Petrographische Mitteilungen) is one of Europe’s oldest geoscientific journals (since 1872).
