The Mining Revue is a Romanian academic publication focusing on the mining engineering field. Since 2011, the Mining Revue is published quarterly by the Universitas Publishing House in Petrosani,
ISSN-L 1220-2053/ISSN 2247-8590. The Mining Revue was categorized by the National Council for Scientific Research in Higher Education (C.N.C.S.I.S.) in the B+ category. The papers published in the revue are theoretical and experimental studies from the mining field and they are developed by university academics or researchers, but also by engineers and experts from the field, promoting scientific research that contributes to the expansion of the knowledge horizon in the mining field.
The Mining Revue
is indexed in the
EBSCO international databases.
Over the years, the publication appeared under several names: 1918 - 1941 “Analele Minelor din România” / Mining Engineers Association, Bucharest - 12 numbers/year numbered from year 1/1918 no. 1-12 to year 24/1941 no.1-12 1950 - 1974 “Revista Minelor” / Body of the Scientific Association of Technicians from R.P.R and of Ministry of Mines and Petroleum, Bucharest, 12 numbers/year numbered from year 1/1950 no.1-12 and so to 1974 1974 - 1990 “Mine. Petrol. Gaze” / Body of the Ministry of Mines.Petroleum.Gases from R.S.R., Bucharest, 12 numbers/year numbered from year I/1974 no. 1-12 to 1989 1991 - 2010 “Revista Minelor” / University of Petrosani and General Directorate of Mineral Resources, Infomin Deva Publishing house, numbered from Volume I no. 1-12 and so on until year 2010
From the last two numbers of the 2009 collection, the revue has also been published in English.
From 2011, Mining Revue is published quarterly by the University of Petrosani, at the Universitas Publishing house.
The Mining Revue publishes original and advanced research papers, new developments and case studies in mining engineering and technologies aiming new and improved techniques also suitable for civil applications.
The journal covers all aspects of mining, environmental issues and technologies relating to exploration, exploitation and processing of mineral resources, surveying, computers and simulation, performance improvement, cost control and improvement, all aspects of safety improvement, rock mechanics and interface between mining and law.
Environmental issues specially identified for coverage include: Environmental impact assessment and permitting; mining and processing technologies; waste management and waste minimization practices; mine site closure, decommissioning and reclamation; acid mine drainage.
Mining issues to be covered include: Design of surface and underground mines (economics, geotechnical, production scheduling, ventilation); mine optimization and planning; drilling and blasting technologies; material handling systems; mine equipment. Computer, micro-processor and artificial intelligence based technology used in mining are also covered. The papers have a wide ranging and interdisciplinary topic choice.
The editors will consider papers on other topics related to mining and environmental issues.
All published research articles in this journal have undergone rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and refereeing by independent expert referees.
The Mining Revue is characterized by the approach of topics from the fields of occupational health and safety, risk assessment management in the mining industry and mineral engineering, from the field of artificial intelligence and knowledge based systems, taking into account the characteristics of the geographical area, both from the point of view of mineral resources as well as of human resources.
