SPECIAL ISSUE TO BE PUBLISHED IN MAGNETIC RESONANCE LETTERS
Journal: Magnetic Resonance Letters
Magnetic Resonance Letters (MRL) is a peer-reviewed Open Access journal, launched in July 2021, quarterly published by Innovation Academy for Precision Measurement Science and Technology, Chinese Academy of Sciences (APM, CAS). As the first English journal of magnetic resonance spectroscopy in China and the official journal of the Committee of Magnetic Resonance of the Chinese Physics Society, MRL has been selected as "High Starting Point New Journal" project of the 2019 China Science and Technology Journal Excellence Action Plan. It is devoted to publishing original articles in various aspects of magnetic resonance, such as MRI, fMRI, MRS, NMR, ESR, NQR, etc., and focusing on the frontiers of magnetic resonance theories and their applications. The journal will provide many author benefits, such as easy online submission, fast and high-quality peer review, free language polishing, no page or color charges, fast publication, and authors retaining copyright. All accepted articles are free to download in ScienceDirect for immediate access and high visibility.

Special issue title: Magnetic Resonance in Porous Media
Introduction: Porous media are ubiquitous and are characterized by a wide range of distinct morphological and topographical properties, often difficult to access by conventional methods. As a unique technology, magnetic resonance has been applied extensively for several decades to non-invasively characterize the structure, interactions, and dynamics of fluids in porous media as well as these media themselves, either by using spectroscopy, relaxometry or imaging modalities. This special issue is dedicated to an editorial and a selection of papers presented at the 15th International Bologna Conference Magnetic Resonance in Porous Media (MRPM), August 2022, Hangzhou, China. MRPM is a series of conferences that report on the progress of our understanding of structure, molecular dynamics, and fluid transport in porous media. The topics in MRPM15 in particular covered applications of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) on rocks, concretes, cements, biological tissues, and other porous media, with wide aspects of new theoretical models, apparatus and experimental sequences. To acknowledge all contributions to the MRPM15 conference, the editorial office of Magnetic Resonance Letters (MRL) would like to invite academic papers to compile a special issue " Magnetic Resonance in Porous Media ", which is planned to be published in May 2023 (normally, the accepted article will be online in less than week). For this MRL special issue, we invite two types of contributions allowed by the journal: research article (no words limit) and communication (<4500 words). Please note that all articles for this special issue will be peer reviewed and the article publishing charges will be waived, provided that they are submitted in time.Only papers with innovative results, without publishing anywhere else, and meeting the high-quality standard of MRL will be published after peer review. Only speakers of the MRPM15 (including invited speakers, normal oral speakers, short oral speakers, and poster speakers) will be invited to submit manuscripts. Several review or mini review articles will also be organized and invited by the Guest Editors team.

GIULIO CESARE BORGIA AWARD
The Giulio Cesare Borgia Award has been established in dedication to Giulio Cesare Borgia for his contributions to the development of Magnetic Resonance in Porous Media. The award memorializes his enthusiasm, passion, and encouragement of young people who undertook the difficult and adventurous path of scientific investigation in this fascinating area of research. The award will be bestowed upon an emerging scientist (typically under the age of 35) who, based on their conference presentation, shows great promise for future scientific leadership. The prize is sponsored by the University of Bologna and will be announced on the MRPM15 website after the meeting.
As for previous conferees we will have poster prizes for the best posters presented by students. The poster prize committee will be constituted by experts from the MRPM committees. The prizes will be will be presented during the closing ceremony of the MRPM meeting.
