About the book

Being a major iron ore, the key focus of hematite research has generally been on various aspects of ironmaking operations, reduction reactions, blast furnace, and direct ironmaking etc. While these traditional areas have grown tremendously in the past few decades, several new fields of hematite research have opened up. These include the exploration of the magnetic behaviour of hematite deep within the earth's mantle, hematite spherules on Mars, water splitting and hydrogen conversion using hematite mesocrystals, nanorods, etc., 2D hematene material, an atomically thin form of hematite, use as microwave absorption material etc. In addition to new research fields, this book will focus on recent developments in traditional research on hematite such as thermal transformations, reduction behaviour, mineral phase transitions, reaction kinetics, reductants etc.

This book will put together in-depth reviews on various facets and diverse utilization of hematite and the current status of research in the field. This book intends to provide comprehensive, state-of-the-art information on emerging developments on hematite to readers from a wide variety of disciplines and backgrounds.

Publishing process

Date completed: August 25th 2020

Applications to edit the book are assessed and a suitable editor is selected, at which point the process begins.

Chapter proposals submitted and reviewed

Deadline Extended: Open for Submissions

Potential authors submit chapter proposals ready for review by the academic editor and our publishing review team.

Approved chapters written in full and submitted

Deadline for full chapters: November 21st 2020

Once approved by the academic editor and publishing review team, chapters are written and submitted according to pre-agreed parameters

Full chapters peer reviewed

Review results due: February 9th 2021

Full chapter manuscripts are screened for plagiarism and undergo a Main Editor Peer Review. Results are sent to authors within 30 days of submission, with suggestions for rounds of revisions.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Mr. Mateo Pulko

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
