European Journal of Mineral Processing and Environmental Protection publishes significant
research results in all areas of Mineral Processing, Extractive Metallurgy and
Environmental Protection. Papers are refereed by recognised high qualification specialists
in the appropriate field.
A paper can be of three forms:
A standard paper
of 10000 words maximum, describing advances in experimental studies and reporting new
analytical or numerical solutions directly related to mineral processing, extractive
metallurgy and environmental protection problems.
An invited review
paper, covering the background, state of art and critical reviews of the previous
approaches to the solution of to mineral processing, extractive metallurgy and
environmental protection problems.
A letter to the
editor, not exceeding 1000 words, commenting on previously published papers.
Manuscripts must be written in
English. Authors whose native language is not English are recommended to seek the advice
of a colleague who has English as his / her mother-tongue before submitting their
Three copies of the manuscript
should be submitted to the European Journal of Mineral Processing and Environmental
Protection, Suleyman Demirel University, Faculty of Engineering and Architecture,
Department of Mining Engineering, Mineral Processing Division, 32260 Isparta, Turkey. In
order to expedite prompt publication the full postal address of the authors responsible
for checking proofs, along with telephone and fax numbers and e-mail addresses where
possible, should be given.
Copyright Release Form (from web page or copy from the journal), which can be found in any
issue, must be signed by all authors and co-authors and must accompany all papers
Manuscripts should be organised
in the following order:
Name(s) of the
author(s) and their affiliations and facsimile number(s) and
e-mail address(es). Facsimile and e-mail address(es) should
be placed as footnotes. In the case of more than one author please indicate to whom the
correspondence should be addressed.
descriptions, methods and material studied
The title should be brief,
typed on a separate sheet and the author's name should be typed on the line below the
title; the affiliation and address should follow on the next line. In the case of
co-authors, respective addresses should be clearly indicated. Correspondence and proofs
for correction will be sent to the first named author, unless otherwise indicated.
The abstract should be a concise summary of the paper stating the methods used, the main
results and the conclusions in a way that does not require reference to the body of the
paper; it should not be longer than 500 words. Authors must supply up to five key words
following the abstract.
Manuscripts should be typed, double spaced, on one side of the page, using A4 size white
Numbers that identify
mathematical expressions should be enclosed in parentheses. Refer to equations in the text
as "Eq. (1), "etc. or "Equation (1), "etc. at the beginning of a
All formulae should be
presented consistently and clearly with regard to the meaning of each symbol and its
correct location. Formulae must be typed throughout.
All unusual symbols must be
collected in a separate list in the appendix, giving a clear explanation of each symbol.
Please try to keep the
notation as simple as possible, and avoid ambiguities. Do not use special type fonts if
there is no urgent need to do so.
Different formulae should be
clearly separated in the manuscript, at least by punctuation marks, if not by words. Avoid
breaking formulae if this is not necessary (i.e., if the equation is less than one typed
line). Never let a sentence consist of formulae alone (i.e., without any connection with
the preceding text).
Do not use complicated just a
positions of symbols. Also, try to avoid complicated subscripts and superscripts;
third-order indices especially present difficulties as to their size and position, and
fourth-order indices are taboo.
The manuscript must show a
clear distinction between similar symbols, (e.g., between zero (0) and the letter O,
between one (1) and the letter l, and between multiplication (x) and the letter (x).
Important formulae (e.g.
definitions) must be displayed. All formulae which are to be referred to later on must be
displayed and numbered consecutively throughout the paper; the number should appear on the
right-hand side of the page.
In chemical formulae the
valence of ions must be given as, for example, Ca2+ and CO32-
rather than as Ca++ and CO3--.
Isotope numbers should
precede the symbols (e.g., 18O).
must be presented separate from the manuscript, unfolded, and as originals. Each
illustration must be sharp and draughted at high density on bright white paper, on glossy
paper or on drawing film. Authors are reminded to provide copies of all illustrations with
micrographs, etc. must be sharp and exhibit good contrast (black & white). Original
glossy prints (e.g., from negatives) are required.
must be numbered consecutively and referred to in the text.
must designed with the page format of the journal in mind. If necessary, they will be
reduced to the proper format by the publisher. The lettering and other details must have
dimensions that do not become illegible or unclear after the required reduction. Foldouts
can only be accepted in exceptional cases. Design all figures in a way that uses all the
available space, do not leave large areas blank. Remember that sharp, neat, well presented
illustrations will be essential to the readers' appreciation of your paper.
Lettering must be
drafted sharply and neatly. The lettering must be in the language of the manuscript. The
same type of lettering should be used throughout.
Bar scales must
be used rather than magnification factors that must be changed in cases of reduction. Do
not forget to mention the units used in diagrams.
All maps must
have north, latitude and longitude indicated.
must have a caption. All figure captions should be typed on a separate sheet and be double
be given in the typewritten caption. Text in the figures should be kept to a minimum.
Authors should take note of
the limitations set by the size and layout of the journal. A table should not exceed the
printed area of the page. If this appears impossible, reversing columns and rows should be
Large tables should be
avoided. Foldouts can only be accepted in exceptional cases. If many data are to be
presented, an attempt should be made to divide these over two or more tables.
Tables should be compiled on
separate sheets and must be numbered according to their sequence in the text. The text
must include references to all tables.
Each table must have a brief
and self-explanatory title. Column headings should be brief, but sufficiently explanatory.
Units of measurement should be given in parentheses. Vertical lines must not be used to
separate columns - leave extra space between the columns instead.
Explanations that are
necessary to the understanding of the table should be given as footnotes at the bottom of
the table. A footnote should be indicated by a lower-case letter.
All illustrations excluding the
tables (photographs, drawings, graphs etc.) should be labelled as "Figure".
Tables should not repeat data available in illustrations. All tables and figures should be
numbered consecutively (Table 1, Figure 1) and should have titles and captions. The proper
position of each table and figure must be clearly indicated in the manuscript. Titles for
tables and captions for figures should be typed double-spaced and included as the last
page of the paper. Dimensions of tables and figures must not exceed 16x20 cm and should
not be smaller than 8 cm in width.
Tables should be clearly typed, each on a separate sheet, and double-spaced. Original line
drawings (not photocopies) should be submitted suitable for immediate reproduction.
Lettering should be large enough to be clearly legible. Photographs of equipment or test
specimens must be glossy prints and should be used sparingly.
SI system of units is required.
Any author whose paper has been
word-processed on a PC machine is asked to send in a copy of his/her disc after he/she has

Microsoft Word. Contact Technical Editors for more information.
References should be cited in
the text by giving the last name of the author(s) and the year of publication of the
reference: either "Recent work (Viskanta and Menguc, 1987)...." or
"Recently Viskanta and Menguc (1987)....". With three or more names, use the
form "George et al. (1995) in the text. When two or more references would have the
same text identification, distinguish them by appending "a", "b",
"etc., to the year of publication
References should be listed in alphabetical order, according to the last name of the first
