The geological evolution of Turkey and Iran is complex and plays an important role in understanding the tectonics of various Tethyan tectonic domains, including Proto-, Paleo-, and Neo-Tethys. We invite contributions to this special issue that describe different tectonic elements of Turkey and Iran and compare them with other Tethyan tectonic elements in the Tethyan Domains of Asia, Europe, and surrounding regions. We welcome contributions from all fields, including tectonics, structural geology, petrology, geochemistry, paleogeography, petroleum geology, mineral deposits, paleontology, and stratigraphy.

Journal of Earth Science (ISSN 1674-487X, Online ISSN 1867-111X) is issued bimonthly through China University of Geosciences, and published by Springer. The bimonthly English journal strives to cover all branches of geology and related technology in the exploration and utilization of earth resources, namely, geology, petrology, mineralogy, ore deposit geology, tectonics, paleontology, stratigraphy, sedimentology, geochemistry, geophysics, environmental sciences, etc. Submissions of original articles in English from scientists both in China and around the World on relevant subjects are welcome. All articles are reviewed by two or more referees for scholarly presentation, technical merit, quality of scientific content, and utility of the results for practicing geologists. The Editorial Committee reserves the final decision concerning the acceptance of a paper.
Articles should discuss new theories, methods and discoveries, recent achievements in the geosciences, as well as timely reviews on selected subjects. Articles should contain original data and facts which support the conclusions. Manuscripts should conform to the guidelines in the instructions for authors.
