"Chernye Metally" (transl.: Ferrous Metals journal) journal is one of the most respectable Russian monthly periodicals in the field of iron and steel industry.


It is the only Russian monthly metallurgical journal that publishes materials about whole spectrum of the problems, innovations and news of Russian and foreign iron and steel industry.

Published since 1961, volume up to 84 pages, circulation up to 1,000 copies. ISSN 0132-0890.

The features of "Chernye Metally" journal are based on publishing materials about up-to-date scientific innovations both national and foreign metallurgists; it allows to compare them demonstrably and to get full information about current state and development tendencies of iron and steel industry in Russia and abroad. Such editorial practice is rather popular among the readership.

"Chernye Metally" journal publishes both separate articles about innovations in the field of iron and steel industry and experience of their putting into practice at metallurgical works, and also complex collections of materials on plants and technological directions. The topics of publications covers whole area of metallurgical production from iron- and steel making, casting and rolling to finishing, heat treatment and coating of metal products. Serious attention is paid in the journal to up-to-date technological processes (such as metal shape memory, superductility, manufacture of large diameter tubes, micro-mills etc), as well as actual problems of environment protection, resource saving and training of specialists.

"Chernye Metally" journal publishes on regular base information and advertising materials of many national and foreign exhibitions and conferences, where this edition is an information sponsor or partner.

Editorial council of "Chernye Metally" journal includes 36 well-known and respectable metallurgists, i.e. 4 foreign specialists from Canada, Denmark and Germany.
