AIM AND SCOPE OF THE JOURNAL
The Journal of Mineralogical and Petrological Sciences (JMPS)
publishes original articles, reviews
and letters in the fields of mineralogy, petrology, economic
geology, geochemistry, planetary
materials science, and related scientific
fields. As an international journal, we aim to
provide worldwide diffusion for the results of research in Japan, as well
as to serve as a medium with high impact factor for the global
Given the remarkable rate at which
publications have been expanding to include several fields,
including planetary and earth sciences, materials science, and
instrumental analysis technology, the journal aims to encourage and
develop a variety of such new interdisciplinary scientific fields,
to encourage the wide scope of such new fields to bloom in the future, and to
contribute to the rapidly growing international scientific community.
To cope with this emerging
scientific environment, in April 2000 the journal's two parent societies,
Society of Japan) and JAMPEG*
(The Japanese Association of
Mineralogists, Petrologists and Economic Geologists), combined
their respective journals (the Mineralogical Journal and the Journal of
Mineralogy, Petrology and Economic Geology). The
result of this merger was the Journal of Mineralogical
and Petrological Sciences, which has a greatly expanded and enriched scope
compared to its
and JAMPEG merged
into one new society
Association of Mineralogical Sciences(JAMS)
on September 22, 2007.
The Journal of Mineralogical and Petrological Sciences is indexed in the Institute for Scientific Information (ISI) database (Thomson
the Science Citation Index-Expanded, Current Contents/Physical, Chemical & Earth Sciences,
and ISI Alerting Services.
