IOM3 Publications

Materials and the associated fields of minerals and mining are indispensable to modern society. To optimise our consumption of materials, to minimise the impact of mining, and to ensure disposal of used materials in a responsible way it is more than ever essential to fully understand their production, properties, applications, and alternatives.  

T&F in collaboration IOM3 will publish works on a range of topics relevant to materials, minerals & mining science, and engineering in the 21st century. Books, monographs, and other publications will be authored, edited, and reviewed by acknowledged experts. Each work will be tailored to the needs of students, educators, scientists, engineers, managers, and policymakers as societies around the world evolve to meet the universal challenges of awareness, sustainability, adaptability, and responsible use.

To submit a suggestion for a topic contact Allison Shatkin, Senior Publisher, Materials, Chemical, and Petroleum Engineering, Taylor & Francis/CRC Press. If you have a formulated concept than please complete the proposal form at the bottom of this page.
