About Mining


Mining (ISSN 2673-6489) is an advanced forum for studies related to mining science and engineering in the 21st century. As of late, the mining industry has known many metamorphoses constrained by numerous economic, technical, social, and environmental issues. World-leading mining companies still need high-level research and developments in many domains related to the complete mining cycle. Therefore, research related to mining is growing in many related fields. The journal publishes reviews, regular research papers, and technical notes as well as Special Issues on particular subjects.

The aim of Mining is to encourage scientists to publish their research work in as much detail as possible. Therefore, there is no restriction on the maximum length of papers submitted to the journal. Full experimental details should be provided so that the results can be reproduced. In addition, electronic files or software regarding the full details of the calculations and experimental procedure as well as source codes can be submitted as supplementary material.
