Announcing the merger of another important mineral processing journal

In January of this year, a new-look Minerals Engineering was launched, with its merger with International Journal of Mineral Processing.
Next January, there will be another new-look journal, when Minerals & Metallurgical Processing (MMP), published by the Society for Mining, Metallurgy & Exploration (SME) becomes the international peer-reviewed journal Mining, Metallurgy & Exploration (MME) of the SME, which will be published by Springer Nature.
The scope of MMP will be broadened to represent the full spectrum of interests of the society. In six issues per year, this new journal with open access options will publish original research, in-depth reviews, short communications, and reviews of new technologies and industrial methodologies. Mary Poulton, co-director of the Lowell Institute for Mineral Resources at the University of Arizona, heads MME as its executive editor. She is supported by three section editors-in-chief responsible for the fields of mining, minerals and exploration, respectively: Jurgen Brune at the Colorado School of Mines, Ronel Kappes at Newmont USA, and Virginia McLemore at the New Mexico Bureau of Geology and Mineral Resources. In addition, MME has an international editorial board of more than 20 experts from academia, industry and government.

  1. Good to read about mergers and acquisitions in Technical Journals also. This will try to break the barriers between the areas in the chin of"mine to metal". The Reader will get a broader perspective.
    Barry, some how, the "characterization " part , which I feel is very important, is not getting enough attention from researchers. I hope we will see more papers on this "fundamental and essential part" of mineral industry.
