For the third year in a row, Steel Research International experienced a growth in its ISI impact factor with an increase of more than 125% over the 2012 number, as Thomson Reuters recently reported in their updated records. With its new Impact Factor of 1.118, the highest ever in the journal’s history, the journal is listed within the top third of the ISI category Metallurgy & Metallurgical Engineering.
Being already in its 86th year of publication, Steel Research International looks back on a long history. In 1927, the Verein Deutsche Eisenhüttenleute launched Archiv für das Eisenhüttenwesen, which over several decades published much of the fundamental research in steel and related materials as the industry grew and matured. In 1985 it was retitled as Steel Research and relaunched in the English language before eventually becoming Steel Research International.
Today the journal is known to be highly selective and publishes only the most important and far-reaching research in steel and related materials. It provides 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.
