Re-launch Global Tectonics and Metallogeny

ISSN 0163-3171

Re-launch of an International Journal & Call for papers
It is our great pleasure to inform you that the preparations for the re-launch of the International Association on the Genesis of Ore Deposits journal “Global Tectonics and Metallogeny” (GTM) have been accomplished with the appointment of a new editorial board and the setup of a new website for electronic manuscript submissions and editing: The journal was continuously published over the past decades under the ownership and editorial guidance of its founder, the late Professor Jan Kutina. After his sad passing away followed a 2-year period of restructuring when the publisher first acquired the rights in the title and secured the support of IAGOD as learned society to adopt the journal and to assist in making the journal with thorough peer-review procedures fit for the 21st century. As a side affect, this became one of the reasons why the interim editorial board (2009-2010) did not succeed to generate during this period a flow of publishable manuscripts from those authors who used to publish previously in GTM. With also 2011 halfway through it is now a measure of urgency and crucial importance to generate a stable manuscript flow for GTM to start in 2012 with periodical release of its issues to qualify soon for the ISI impact factor system. In consequence, we would like to invite you to submit a paper to the re-launched “Global Tectonics and Metallogeny”. Together with Schweizerbart Science Publishers, we wish to thank you for your readiness to give GTM in the future the place in the journal landscape that its title deserves!

Global Tectonics and Metallogeny

Aims & Scope
Global Tectonics and Metallogeny (GTM) provides a forum for a systematic discussion of the factors that govern the formation and distribution of ore deposits from district to continental and to global scale. Special emphasis is placed on understanding and describing relationships between metallogenesis and global tectonics and the processes that connect them. Global Tectonics and Metallogeny serves as a means of communication among participants of the international discussion an all these topics and provides a link with a broad geological community that is invited to join the debate. Reports on activities of the CTOD working groups will also appear in this journal, invited review papers will be published on an irregular basis. The language of the journal is English.

Submission and review
Submission of a manuscript for publication in GTM is considered binding assurance that this work has not been and will not be published elsewhere in this form and length. With acceptance and publication of a paper, the exclusive copyright for every language and every country is transferred to the publisher. This includes further editions, reprints and microfilms, and storage and compilation on electronic media. Manuscripts shall be submitted preferably online and will be reviewed based on the Global Tectonics and Metallogeny Online Review System. This procedure strongly simplifies the review process, accelerates communication, and enables authors, editors and reviewer to maintain an excellent overview about the status of all review processes. For online submission please use:
