The Russian scientific journal «Melts» is devoted to the problems of the high temperature physical chemistry and electrochemistry of metal, oxide and salt melts. It is intended for publication of results related to the theoretical and experimental research regarding structure, physicochemical properties, thermodynamics of melts, composition of melts boundaries with solid, liquid and gaseous phases, and processes which take place on these boundaries at production of ferrous, non-ferrous and rare metals; physical modeling and computer simulation of structure and properties of liquid and amorphous materials.
Established in 1987, the Russian scientific journal «Rasplavy/Melts» is issued six times a year. It is on the list of the leading peer-reviewed Russian scientific journals, issued by the Russian Higher Attestation Commission, which is proposed for publishing achievements of the doctoral and PhD thesis works. The journal editorial board selects articles to be translated in English in order to publish them in the second and eighth issues of the Russian scientific journal «Russian Metallurgy (Metally)».
