Aims and scope

Transactions of the Indian Institute of Metals publishes original research articles and reviews on ferrous and non-ferrous process metallurgy, structural and functional materials development, physical, chemical and mechanical metallurgy, welding science and technology, metal forming, particulate technologies, surface engineering, characterization of materials, thermodynamics and kinetics, materials modelling and other allied branches of Metallurgy and Materials Engineering.


Transactions of the Indian Institute of Metals also serves as a forum for rapid publication of recent advances in all the branches of Metallurgy and Materials Engineering. The technical content of the journal is scrutinized by the Editorial Board composed of experts from various disciplines of Metallurgy and Materials Engineering. Editorial Advisory Board provides valuable advice on technical matters related to the publication of Transactions.


The articles are published under two categories:


Original Research articles presenting original work and embodying the results of extensive theoretical, laboratory, plant or field investigations.
Review articles embodying extensive critical assessment of the state of the art on a contemporary topic or theme.


The journal publishes occasionally special issues on current topics of interest. Papers for special issues are generally invited by the editorial board. Papers presented at National and International Symposia/conferences are also considered for publication as special issues after peer review.
