Neues japanisches "Journal of Mineralogical and Petrological Sciences" (JMPS)
In the effort of widening their international role and the international cooperation, the Mineralogical Society of Japan and the Association of Mineralogists, Petrologists, and Economic Geologist of Japan have begun to publish a new bi-monthly journal, with the title "Journal of Mineralogical and Petrological Sciences" (JMPS), which is the successor journal to both "Mineralogical Journal" and "Journal of Mineralogy, Petrology and Economic Geology". The first issue of JMPS has been published in April 2000, as number 4 of volume 95, keeping the numeration of the older "Journal of Mineralogy, Petrology and Economic Geology".
JMPS covers all subjects in the Mineralogical and Petrological Sciences, including geochemistry as well. Manuscripts submitted in English to JMPS can span over the three categories of full papers, letters, and reviews, and are peer-refereed by two or more reviewers, chosen by an international editorial board. The bi-monthly periodicty allows fast publication once a manuscript has been accepted. All manuscripts should be addressed to: Editor-in-Chief, The Japanese Association of Mineralogists, Petrologists and Economic Geologists, c/o Graduate School of Science, Tohoku University, Sendai 980-8578, Japan.
