An important announcement for contributors to Minerals Engineering

Elsevier is pleased to inform you that as of the 13th of November 2020 the submission system of the journal Minerals Engineering, currently operating on the Elsevier Editorial System (EES), will migrate to a new system, Editorial Manager.

Editorial Manager is a state-of-the-art manuscript handling software for authors, reviewers and editors to handle the end-to-end peer review process for academic journals. Elsevier was pleased to acquire Editorial Manager in late 2018, and since that date has been moving all its journals to this one system.

Editorial Manager offers many advantages over EES and we are delighted to finally be moving Minerals Engineering to this system. We have many plans to implement new features in the system designed around saving time and effort for authors, reviewers and editors alike, and we hope that you will find these useful.

Before the migration date the EES site will be completely closed to users in order to allow a data transfer between the systems. During this time, it will not be possible to submit manuscripts, consult papers, or check the status of manuscripts. We anticipate this transfer time to be brief, one to two days, after which EM will be accessible again to all users as the sole peer review system. All current submissions and their statuses will therefore be transferred as they are currently in EES to EM, allowing a smooth transition.

In the days previous to this transfer a banner will be placed on EES to advise users of the imminent transition; we urge you to please complete your submissions when you can and update yourselves on the manuscript handling status before the migration date as this will not be possible during the down time.

If you have any questions about Editorial Manager, please do get in touch at, otherwise you may like to familiarise yourself with the system via a dedicated training session (available in English, Spanish, French and Mandarin Chinese.
