Resources Policy is an international journal devoted to the economics and policy issues related to mineral and fossil fuel extraction, production and use. The journal content is aimed at individuals in academia, government, and/or industry. Submissions of original research are invited that analyze issues of public policy, economics, social science, geography and finance in the areas of mining, non-fuel minerals, energy minerals, fossil fuels and metals.

Examples of topics covered in the broad discipline of mineral economics include mineral market and price analysis, project evaluation, mining and sustainable development, mineral resource rents and the resource curse, mineral wealth and corruption, mineral taxation and regulation, strategic minerals and their supply, and the impact of mineral development on local communities and/or indigenous populations.

Submissions also are invited on related natural resource topics of interest and importance to the minerals and fossil fuel community, such as sustainability, topics from environmental economics related to mineral production and use, and socio-economic impacts of mineral production and use.
We aim to publish scientific robust work, so methods should be carefully described and data properly cited. Literature reviews are accepted as long as they provide meaningful insights and a clear contribution to the literature. Case studies are also accepted as long as they contribute to the debate and comprehension of issues of broader significance. Discussion and debate-focused articles without a major research component are generally not accepted, but they could be considered upon discretion of the Editors.
