Submission of papers
The Journal of Mining and Geological Sciences accepts and publishes papers in English only. They are published after an anonymous double-blind peer review. The procedure implies double anonymity – of the author and the peer reviewer. This is done to reduce the subjective factor, to ensure the impartiality of the peer review and to improve the quality of the published materials. The peer reviews are kept at the editorial office of the Journal for five calendar years. The papers are presented at the International Scientific Conference, organised annually by the University of Mining and Geology "St. Ivan Rilski”.
The main criteria for the evaluation of the quality of the reviewed articles are: compliance with the themes; compliance with the formal technical requirements; the scientific contribution of the presented research compared to the contemporary scientific literature; originality of the study; the quality of the data used and the results and conclusions obtained.
Authors wishing to publish their papers in the Journal of Mining and Geological Sciences should submit a summary in Bulgarian and English and a completed application form to the official e-mail of the Secretariat of the Editorial Board - email@example.com. Once approved by the Editorial Board, they should submit the paper in full, subject to the formal technical requirements adopted. All submitted papers are subject to peer review and are published only after receiving positive peer reviews and paid fees for the participation in the International Scientific Conference.
