Instructions for Authors

Original papers in any segment of economic geology and studies of all classes of mineral deposits will be considered for publication. For detailed instructions to authors, please read the Instructions to Authors PDF, or consult "Instructions to Authors" in the first issue of Economic Geology for the current year. Only under special circumstances can papers in excess of 15,000 words, or roughly 50 typed, double-spaced pages (including references, tables, and figures), be accepted for publication.

The Editor and members of the Editorial Board will seek two competent reviews of all papers before accepting or rejecting them. Limited topics may be submitted as short scientific communications, will be judged by one review, and are published more rapidly than papers. Authors are requested to indicate in their cover letter to the editor whether the manuscript is a regular paper or a scientific communication. Papers can be submitted online at Authors should upload text in word processing format such as Word or RTF; tables in original format such as Excel; and figures in graphic output format such as TIFF, EPS, JPEG, PDF, or PowerPoint. The online submission program, Editorial Manager, will then build a single PDF for use in the review process.
