CIM Journal welcomes original papers in English or French. Submissions are assigned to a CIM Technical Society for double-blind peer review. Our authors and audience are international in scope. Topics covered in CIM Journal include geology, mining, processing, maintenance, environmental protection and reclamation, social responsibility, mineral economics, project management, health and safety, risk management, research and development, operations, and regulatory practices and issues. We also publish periodic special-themed issues.
Join forces with some of the brightest minds and share your expertise by submitting a Technical Paper to CIM Journal, or volunteer to be a peer reviewer. Peer reviewers play a key role in maintaining the high quality of our CIM technical publications.
