Scope of the Journal

The Journal of Applied Geochemistry publishes articles after peer review covering all aspects of the application of geochemistry to exploration and study of mineral resources and related fields, including the geochemistry of environment. Topics  include : analytical geochemistry, environmental studies/environmental geochemistry, experimental geochemistry, exploration geochemistry, ocean sciences, fluid inclusions, geochemical engineering, geomathematics/geostatistics and data processing, geochemical mapping, hydro-geochemistry, isotope geochemistry, mineralogy/mineral chemistry, petrology/petrochemistry, pollution & effluent geochemistry, ore geochemistry, organic geochemistry, petroleum geochemistry and other related fields. The papers that seek to integrate geochemical, geological and geophysical methods of exploration are welcome.
