Dear Colleagues,
It is a pleasure to inform you that starting from January 2016 Periodico di Mineralogia has undertaken a complete renewal of its Editorial Management. 
We express our gratitude to Antonio Gianfagna as outgoing Editor-in-Chief and the whole Editorial Staff, especially for the effort and dedication demonstrated in managing the journal in the last 7 years. 
After that the Periodico di Mineralogia has been scrutinized by all relevant bibliometric databases (Scopus, Web of Sciences), the journal has been now ranked by Impact Factor. 
Despite this important acknowledgement, we firmly believe that a further step is possible informing the potential authors of our intention to enhance the quality of the Periodico di Mineralogia. This will pass necessarily through a more effective evaluation process of the submitted manuscripts that will unavoidably result in an increased rejection rate. 
It is worth mention that the journal offers free Open Access, which is becoming mandatory for publishing scientific achievements granted by national and international funding agencies, no page charges and free colour for both printed and on-line articles. The accepted articles are also readily published on line, being immediately citable with DOI.
The journal website is currently undertaken a transitional period of substantial redesign. This will make the article handling simpler and faster, allowing to indicate at the time of submission the Section Editor specific to the article topic. 
Finally, starting in April 2016, the issues of the Periodico di Mineralogia will present changes in the graphical layout with potentially improved appeal and readability.
We are eagerly waiting for your submissions.

The Editor-in-Chief
