The review journal Uspehi Fiziki Metallov (abbreviated key-title: Usp. Fiz. Met.) was founded in 2000. In 2018, the journal officially obtained parallel title Progress in Physics of Metals (abbreviated title — Prog. Phys. Met.). The journal publishes articles (that has not been published nowhere earlier and are not being considered for publication elsewhere) comprising reviews (i.e. overview papers summarizing and analyzing the current state of understanding on a topic) of experimental and theoretical results in physics and technology of metals, alloys, compounds, and materials that possess metallic properties; reviews on monographs, information about conferences, seminars; data on the history of metal physics; advertising of new technologies, materials and devices.
