About the Journal
Since 1976, Ofioliti provides an international forum for original contributions and reviews in the field of the geodynamics, petrology, geochemistry, biostratigraphy, stratigraphy, tectonics and paleogeography applied to ophiolitic terrains and modern oceanic lithosphere, including their sedimentary cover. Studies of topics such as geodynamics of the mantle, the evolution of orogens including ophiolites and paleoceanography are also welcome.
Ofioliti is a FREE ACCESS journal. To download the pdf files of our articles you can register here.

A special section of the journal Ofioliti will be dedicated to Marco Beltrando, who suddenly passed away in response to a climbing accident in December 2015. In spite of his young age, Marco developed revolutionary ideas in deciphering the role of rift inheritance in the evolution of the Alpine orogeny, by integrating data from stratigraphy, structural geology, petrology, geochronology and geochemistry. The main theme of this Ofioliti special section is the evolution of the Alpine belt starting from late-post-Variscan times, including the development of the Jurassic Alpine Tethys. We indeed welcome any scientific contribution dealing with role of rifting inheritance in collisional orogens, as well as studies of orogens aimed at unraveling the evolution of normal to hyperextended margins and oceanic domains.
