The Journal reflects the current trends of development in fundamental and applied mining sciences. It publishes original articles on geomechanics and geoinformation science, investigation of relationships between global geodynamic processes and man-induced disasters, physical and mathematical modeling of rheological and wave processes in multiphase structural geological media, rock failure, analysis and synthesis of mechanisms, automatic machines, and robots, science of mining machines, creation of resource-saving and ecologically safe technologies of mineral mining, mine aerology and mine thermal physics, coal seam degassing, mechanisms for origination of spontaneous fires and methods for their extinction, mineral dressing, and bowel exploitation.

PEER REVIEW

Journal of Mining Science is a peer reviewed journal. We use a single blind peer review format. Our team of reviewers includes over 100 experts from 15 countries. The average period from submission to first decision in 2018 was 15 days, and that from first decision to acceptance was 90 days. The rejection rate for submitted manuscripts in 2018 was 50%. The final decision on the acceptance of an article for publication is made by the Editorial Board.

Any invited reviewer who feels unqualified or unable to review the manuscript due to the conflict of interests should promptly notify the editors and decline the invitation. Reviewers should formulate their statements clearly in a sound and reasoned way so that authors can use reviewer’s arguments to improve the manuscript. Personal criticism of the authors must be avoided. Reviewers should indicate in a review (i) any relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors, (ii) anything that has been reported in previous publications and not given appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal knowledge.

  • Covers geomechanics; resource-saving mining technologies; stability of mine workings; wave processes in rock mass; mineral dressing, mining machine science and ventilation systems
  • Includes papers on the mechanical properties, pressure distribution, brittleness, drillability, and blast behavior of rock in mines
  • English translation of the Russian Fiziko-Tekhnicheskie Problemy Razrabotki Poleznykh Iskopaemykh
