The review journal Uspehi Fiziki Metallov (abbreviated key-title — Usp. Fiz. Met.) was founded in 2000 (the state registration certificate of the printed mass medium KB # 4160 as from 20.04.2000). In 2018, after the re-registration procedure, according to the assigned new registration certificate КВ # 23233-13073ПР as of 22.03.2018, in addition to the transliterated title Uspehi Fiziki Metallov, the journal received an official parallel title Progress in Physics of Metals (abbreviated title — Prog. Phys. Met.). In 2024, by decision of the National Council of Television and Radio Broadcasting of Ukraine # 907 as from 21.03.2024, the journal was assigned the media identifier R30-03170 (see addendum to the decision of the National Council 21.03.2024 # 907) in the register of entities in the field of print media.
The journal publishes the review research articles (which comply with the principles of publication ethics and rules for authors) comprising reviews (i.e. overview papers summarizing and analyzing the current state of understanding on a topic) of experimental or/and theoretical results in physics and technology of metals, alloys, compounds, and materials possessing metallic or semimetallic properties. Reviews on monographs, data on the history of metal physics, information about advanced technologies, materials and devices, conferences and seminars may be considered as well.
