Wiley-VCH is delighted to announce publishing responsibility for Steel Research International from January 2010 on behalf of Verlag Stahleisen, Steel Institute VDEh, Max-Planck-Institut für Eisenforschung, The Austrian Society for Metallurgy and Materials ASME, Fédération Française de l'Acier and Jernkontoret (Sweden).
Wiley-VCH, part of the international publishing house John Wiley & Sons, Inc., Hoboken, NJ, USA, is one of the leading technical publishers in Germany with an emphasis on science.
"We are convinced that Steel Research International will benefit from the global Wiley organization. Our authors and readers will recognize the new possibilities this cooperation gives them - from faster handling of online submitted manuscripts to global visibility of the published work in print and digital media" said Adrian Schommers, Managing Director of Verlag Stahleisen.
Peter Gregory, Publishing Director for Global Materials Science and Physics at Wiley added "We are proud to include Steel Research International into our portfolio of high-quality scientific journals in all areas of materials science and physics. The journal is well recognized internationally. It has a record of being the home of the world-renowned German steel research for decades, and has moved to a truly international format recently. It will certainly benefit from several synergies with our journals portfolio, e.g., Advanced Materials or Advanced Engineering Materials."
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. The emphasis is on steel and related metals and on materials involved in processing, such as refractories and slags.
The journal was founded in 1929 as the "Archiv für das Eisenhüttenwesen", published by the "Verein Deutscher Eisenhüttenleute (VDEh)". It later changed its name to „Steel Research" and „Steel Research International". In 2006 the former "Scandinavian Journal of Metallurgy" merged with Steel Research International. It has since then been supported by five European organizations, Steel Institute VDEh, Max-Planck Institute for Iron Research, The Austrian Society for Metallurgy and Materials ASMET, Fédération Française de l'Acier, and Jernkontoret.
The journal will appear with 12 issues a year and is available in print and online via Wiley InterScience, Wiley's dynamic online publishing platform. The first issue will be available in January 2010. Further articles will be available through Wiley's Early View pre-print publication service.
