The Society of Mining Professors (SOMP) has adopted the Institute’s Mining Technology journal, produced by Maney Publishing, as their official journal. This brings Mining Technology to the attention of a new group of mining engineers.

Three members of SOMP have been appointed to the editorial board – Professor Z Agioutantis from the Technical University of Crete, Dr V Kecojevic from West Virginia University, and Professor Dr-Ing O Langefeld from Technische Universität Clausthal. SOMP members wil now receive online access to the quarterly journal and are eligible for a discounted print subscription.

Professor Michael Karmis, Secretary General of SOMP, noted, ‘Mining Technology will serve an important role as a technological bridge for mining educational institutions around the world’.
As Editor, Professor Peter Dowd, University of Adelaide, was instrumental in bringing about the partnership, ‘I welcome the affiliation of Mining Technology with the Society of Mining Professors, who represent all of the world’s major university mining schools. This consolidates and further enhances the position of Mining Technology as the world’s leading international scholarly journal that covers all aspects of underground, surface and offshore mining’.

Mining Technology is published on behalf of IOM3 in association with the Australasian Institute of Mining and Metallurgy.
