Aims and Scope

Geologiâ rudnyh mestoroždenij is a periodical covering the topic of metallic and nonmetallic mineral deposits, their formation conditions, and spatial and temporal distribution. The journal publishes original scientific articles and reviews on a wide range of problems in theoretical and applied geology.

The journal focuses on the following problems:

  • deep geological structure and geodynamic environment of ore formation;
  • distribution pattern of metallogenic zones and mineral deposits;
  • geology and formation environment of large and unique metallic and nonmetallic deposits;
  • mineralogy of metallic and nonmetallic deposits; physicochemical and isotopic characteristics and geochemical environment of ore deposition;
  • evolution of ore-forming systems;
  • radiogeology and radioecology, economic problems in exploring, developing, and mining of ore commodities.




Peer Review Process

Geologiâ rudnyh mestoroždenij is a peer reviewed journal. We use a double blind peer review format. Our team of reviewers includes over 175 reviewers, both internal and external (90%). The average period from submission to first decision in 2017 was 30 days, and that from first decision to acceptance was 180 days. The rejection rate for submitted manuscripts in 2017 was 30%. The final decision on the acceptance of an article for publication is made by the Editorial Board.

Any invited reviewer who feels unqualified or unable to review the manuscript due to the conflict of interests should promptly notify the editors and decline the invitation. Reviewers should formulate their statements clearly in a sound and reasoned way so that authors can use reviewer’s arguments to improve the manuscript. Personal criticism of the authors must be avoided. Reviewers should indicate in a review (i) any relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors, (ii) anything that has been reported in previous publications and not given appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal knowledge.
