The Journal of Australasian Mining History is a scholarly journal and accepts papers relating to historical aspects of mining, mining archaeology and heritage in the Australasian region, though consideration will also be given to contributions of general interest to mining historians.

The Journal is divided into listed refereed (peer reviewed) and non-refereed (subject to editorship) sections. Refereed articles are subjected to a double-blind refereeing process.

Book reviews and short notes are also published in the Journal.
