Journal of The Fluorescent Mineral Society

The Journal is a technical publication that presents original research on selected aspects of luminescence in minerals.

The Journal of the Fluorescent Mineral Society is published annually or biennially by the Fluorescent Mineral Society. The Journal contains original articles dealing with all aspects of the luminescence (fluorescence, phosphorescence/afterglow, triboluminescence, thermoluminescence, and related topics) in minerals including mineralogy, geology, mechanisms of luminescence, and technologies for generating luminescence. In general, the Journal published original research contributions, though also considers timely review articles as well. Authors are invited to contact the editor about proposed contributions. The editor also solicits information on published articles of particular interest to our membership for possible reprinting in the Journal. Articles submitted to the Journal undergo peer review and once accepted are generally published in the next issue.

The FMS provides this publication as a benefit of membership.

Electronic and paper issues of current and back issues of the journal will be available for sale or download through this website in the future. For more information, please contact us.
