SME Transactions is now available solely as an online subscription. Each SME Transactions volume consists of three sections: 15 to 20 new papers on subjects ranging from mineralogy to mine safety, all of the peer-reviewed technical papers from Mining Engineering , and all of the peer-reviewed content of Minerals & Metallurgical Processing . SME Transactions remains the best single source for mine-related research from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), and its easy-to-use index provides a shorthand overview of current critical topics in mining research.

SME Transactions was published as a hardbound book until 2010. To purchase older volumes, contact the SME bookstore at books@smenet.org . Many older volumes are still in stock.

 

These are the available online volumes. If the viewable options are not available, you
will need to purchase the most recent year to view those volumes.
