Russian Journal of Non-Ferrous Metals

ISSN: 1067-8212 (Print) 1934-970X (Online)


The main aim of the Russian Journal of Non-Ferrous Metals is to achieve a new knowledge in such topics as extraction metallurgy, hydro- and piro- metallurgy, casting, plastic deformation, metallography and heat treatment, powder metallurgy and composites, self-propagating high-temperature synthesis, surface engineering and advanced protected coatings, environments and energy capacity in non-ferrous metallurgy.

Coverage includes both theoretical and applied articles. All major nonferrous metals and alloys are treated, and the emphasis throughout is on the development and improvement of cost effective, environmentally safe methods of nonferrous metals production. The journal publishes articles originating from universities, research institutions, Russian Academy of Sciences institutes and industrial research laboratories.


Russian Journal of Non-Ferrous Metals is a peer reviewed journal. We use a double blind peer review format. Our team of reviewers includes over 180 reviewers, both internal and external (59%), from 18 countries. The average period from submission to first decision in 2017 was 7 days, and that from first decision to acceptance was 60 days. The final decision on the acceptance of an article for publication is made by the Editor-in-Chief.

Any invited reviewer who feels unqualified or unable to review the manuscript due to the conflict of interests should promptly notify the editors and decline the invitation. Reviewers should formulate their statements clearly in a sound and reasoned way so that authors can use reviewer’s arguments to improve the manuscript. Personal criticism of the authors must be avoided. Reviewers should indicate in a review (i) any relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors, (ii) anything that has been reported in previous publications and not given appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal knowledge.
