Mine Water and the Environment – General Remarks

“Journal of International Mine Water Association”, formerly “International Journal of Mine Water”

Mine Water and the Environment welcomes original contributions that address either technical questions or practical issues related to the evaluation, prediction, prevention, or control of water problems at mining operations or their impact on the environment. The journal and its audience are interdisciplinary. Manuscripts should convey new technical information and be of potential interest to researchers and/or practitioners in this field. Laboratory and field experiments, modelling efforts, studies of relevant field sites, technical evaluations of new technology, and engineering applications are all appropriate.

Papers may be submitted in one of two formats. Generally, researchers will prefer to submit manuscripts that will be edited and peer reviewed; authors of such manuscripts will receive the reviewers’ comments and be given the opportunity to address them before a final decision is made regarding publication. Alternatively, contributors can submit (generally) shorter manuscripts to quickly convey information to others in the field. Limited case studies, field trials, or new developments by the mining industry and details of new methods, techniques, or technology will be appropriate for this format. These manuscripts will be referred to as technical communications, and will be edited but not peer-reviewed; the editors alone will decide if the manuscripts are appropriate for publication in this journal. This format should provide a forum for practitioners and others in the field to let people know of their successes and failures, and for researchers to share their results quickly or to publish studies that are not as comprehensive as might be expected in a peer reviewed text. Technical communications are not intended to serve as advertisements. Authors who step over this boundary will be asked to modify the manuscript or to pay the appropriate page charges and have their text appropriately labeled.
