AusIMM welcomes submissions to a variety of respected publications that cover all aspects of the global resouces sector.


The AusIMM welcome submissions to any of the following publications:

Conference proceedings

AusIMM organises conferences each year on a range of topics across the resources sector. Authors are invited to submit an abstract for a conference and if accepted will have the opportunity to present their findings to their industry peers.

Technical journals

IOM3 and AusIMM collaboratively produce a series of technical journals that contain papers covering cutting edge science and technology from across the resources sector. The ‘Transactions of the Institutions of Mining and Metallurgy’ journals provide a highly credible avenue for the publication of peer reviewed, technical literature for use by resource professionals.

The AusIMM Bulletin

The AusIMM Bulletin is the Institute’s flagship bi-monthly magazine. Reaching over 10,000 key stakeholders in the minerals sector, the Bulletin is Australia’s largest circulating mining magazine and provides information on the latest technical innovations in mining, developments in key mining regions in Australia and abroad, industry policy, activities of the AusIMM and our members’ diverse working lives.

Technical publications

AusIMM’s Monograph series offers a catalogue of world-class technical reference volumes. Each monograph covers a significant topic within the resources profession, and the publications are intended to remain relevant for a very long time.
AusIMM’s Spectrum series offers high-quality technical or special-interest volumes that cover either a specialised technical topic or a topic of regional or historic interest.
