Submission open to the Special Journal Issue on "Advances in Hg stable isotope biogeochemistry"

In association with General Session 2 on "Mercury Stable Isotope Biogeochemistry" the Elsevier journal Chemical Geology including Isotope Geoscience (Impact Factor 3.7) has agreed to publish a special journal issue. The special issue, titled "Advances in Hg stable isotope biogeochemistry" is guest-edited by Jeroen Sonke and Joel Blum. The submission deadline is October 1st, 2011.

Manuscripts can be submitted through Elsevier's online EES system.

Please, note that non-ICMGP related Hg stable isotope papers are also welcome, and that online article publication preceeds the final publications of the special issue paper version in 2012, i.e. no publication delays.

Special Journal Technical Committee

The special journal technical committee consists of experts in the mercury research community. The committee members include:

Brian Branfireun, University of Western Ontario
Charley Driscoll, Syracuse University
Karen Kidd, University of New Brunswick (Saint John)
Elsie Sunderland, Harvard University
Jim Wiener, University of Wisconsin-La Crosse

Arrangements are presently being made with selected scientific journals to produce topically focused, special issues with papers presented at the conference. A list of these journals will be provided with more information for each special issue. Conferees interested in submitting a manuscript for publication should ensure that the manuscript fits the scope of the special issue for the target journal and will be provided with instructions for preparation and submission of manuscripts. We will be selecting guest editors for these special issues before beginning manuscript preparation. All submitted manuscripts will undergo rigorous peer review, and authors are advised that submitting a manuscript to a special issue does not guarantee acceptance for publication.
