by | Dec 17, 2015

A selection of outstanding articles published in steel research international in the last twelve months.

sri_issue11Welcome to our selection of outstanding articles published recently in steel research international.

steel research international is a journal providing a forum for the publication of high-quality manuscripts in areas ranging from process metallurgy and metal forming to materials engineering as well as process control and testing. steel research international welcomes manuscripts describing basic scientific research as well as industrial research. The journal is listed in the Science Citation Index and has an Impact Factor of 1.118 (2015 Journal Citation Reports).

Articles selected for the Best of Steel 2015 edition include interesting works on such diverse topics as high-entropy steels, medium-manganese steels, characterization methods, continuous casting, slag properties, deoxidation, desulfurization and nitrogen removal.

steel research international was founded in 1927 as “Archiv für das Eisenhüttenwesen”, was relaunched in English as “Steel Research” (1985), merged with the former “Scandinavian Journal of Metallurgy” (2006) and finally became “steel research international” in 2003. Originally the journal was published in German only, now it’s truly international with publishers from Germany, Austria, France, Sweden and China: Steel Institute VDEh (Germany), The Austrian Society for Metallurgy and Materials, Fédération Française de l’Acier, Jernkontoret (Sweden) and the Chinese Society for Metals.

Full details of the journal, including the Author Guidelines can be found on The submission site can be accessed at

We hope that you will find the selection of articles as stimulating as we did, and we encourage you to continue submitting your best manuscripts to steel research international. All articles of this Best of Steel selection are freely available; enjoy reading.
