We deeply respect the history of our journal, which was created by the first rector of the Ural Mining Institute, Peter P. von Weimarn. Therefore, when formulating the goals and objectives of the journal, we also take into account the tasks that Weimarn set in its first issue. 

1) The journal should be international and published in two or more languages.

2) The journal should publish the results of scientific research in selected scientific fields (Earth sciences, technical and economic sciences) taking into account recent advances in this field, both in Russia and in the world.

3) Improve the professional level of researchers, teachers, graduate students and students in selected areas of the research.

Editorial team undertakes to:

- constantly increase the level of reviewing and editing articles submitted for publication;

- ensure that the published articles are as widely distributed as possible in the world scientific community;

- expand the possibilities of distribution and indexing of scientific works in the main citation bases, both in Russia and abroad.

Respecting our history we publish articles on the history of the research within selected scientific sections, and articles on the history of science of the Urals and the Ural Mining University, in particular, where our journal was created and published.
