The journal Metalurgija is primary scientific periodical that publishes scientific papers (original papers, preliminary notes, reviewed papers) as well as professional papers from the area of basic, applicable and developing researching in metallurgy and boundary metallurgy areas (physics, chemistry, mechanical engineering). These papers relate to processing ferrous and non-ferrous metallurgy, treating investigating as well as testing of raw materials, semi products and products, especially in the area of improving new materials and possibilities of their implementation. The journal is the only national periodical of this kind in the Republic of Croatia and covers the scientific field of metallurgy, especially:

  • physical metallurgy and materials;
  • process metailurgy, (ferrous and non-ferrous);
  • mechanical metallurgy (processing, power , etc.);
  • related (adjoing) branches: mechanlcal engineering, chemistry, physics etc.

Journal Metalurgija publishes the following types of papers:

  • Original scientific papers, presenting results of original research works, which have not been previously published, in such a way that they can be repeated or subjected to unambiguous examination;
  • Preliminary notes, giving the results of scientific research which demand prompt publication without assuring the possibility of examination, (or announcing a new scientific insight, which has not been established or dealt with to such an extent that it might be examined or applied directly, or some technical matter is being dealt with in such a way that it may lead to particularly important general insights and encourage further investigations);
  • Reviewed papers, giving the original, critical, and concise survey of a particular area or one of its segments, (or of a situation in a subject matter, from narrow technical to general scientific) where the author himself acts so as to present his personal original contribution regarding previously published works, identified in the review;
  • Professional papers (articles), which provide useful information on a particular technical branch, which do not necessarily originate from the author’s own research.
  • Review in which a description of a scientific and professional event (is given holding of Symposium, book presentation etc.)

Journal Metalurgija conducts a blind peer review process (2-3 scientific reviews + 1-2 metrological reviews).

All content published in journal Metalurgija is available in open access.
