Elsevier, Inc. has announced plans to cease publication of Metal Finishing magazine, effective Dec. 31, 2013. The final issue will be the November/December 2013 edition, and the last Universal Guidebook will be the newly released 2013/14 edition.  

We are proud to have been a part of Metal Finishing’s 111-year storied history of serving the surface finishing industry, and we thank our loyal readers for their support over the years.
Please note that past editions of Metal Finishing will be archived on ScienceDirect.com, Elsevier’s vast portal of technical articles and research papers.
Alternatively, we encourage readers to subscribe to related peer-reviewed journals such as Surface Coatings & Technology, Thin Solid Films, Progress in Organic Coatings and Surface Science, among others.
