New minerals, nomenclature, and classification: EJM support
New minerals, nomenclature, and classification: EJM support
Editor(s): Sergey Krivovichev, Ferdinando Bosi, Cristian Biagioni, Cristiano Ferraris, Edward Grew, and Dmitry Pushcharovsky
This special issue was initiated by Ferdinando Bosi, Chairman of the International Mineralogical Association (IMA) Commission on New Minerals, Nomenclature and Classification (CNMNC). It is intended to support the community working not only on the discovery of new minerals but also on mineral nomenclature and classification. This community is at the core of mineralogy, and the European Journal of Mineralogy fully supports its work.
