Vestnik of Nosov Magnitogorsk State Technical University is a scientific peer-reviewed journal committed to publishing advanced research findings and design project outcomes by well-known scientists, manufacturers, young researchers from Russia and foreign countries engaged in the fields of metallurgy, engineering, metalworking and related industries. Publication themes cover the full range of current issues from mineral mining, iron and steel production and rolling processes to high value added products for different fields of economics. Much attention is devoted to current trends in raw materials development, energy saving, automation, economics and environmental protection, standardization and quality management, as well as personnel training for the metallurgical, engineering, and metalworking industries.

The journal was established in 2003. Over the years, authors from 30 countries have their articles published in Vestnik of Nosov Magnitogorsk State Technical University.
