To cooperate with other companies in order to benefit from synergies is especially important in a global market. This is also the case for publications. To offer interesting know-how about different topics around the world is very demanding and often not possible without taking advantage of each other’s infrastructure and networking. MFN constantly tries to improve its services to readers and is very pleased that by including IST in its September circulation, additional qualified information about the world of surface technology will be available.

IST is a special English-language edition of JOT, Journal für Oberflächentechnik, Germany’s leading journal for surface technology. It belongs to Fachverlagsgruppe Springer Science + Business Media, which is the second-largest scientific publishing company in Europe. After an initial testing period, we will consider adding IST to MFN’s circulation at least twice a year.

IST covers all aspects of surface technology such as liquid coating, powder coating, automotive finishing, electroplating, parts cleaning, paint removal, blasting, conveyor technology and measuring. The articles are carefully selected so that the information is of interest to an international audience.

MFN and IST complement each other very well. While MFN focuses exclusively on peening, blasting, cleaning and vibratory finishing, IST takes a wider view on the surface technology industry. Both magazines, and this is unique in the industry, have placed themselves in such a way as to successfully target an international market.

Enclosed with this issue of MFN, please find a copy of IST, distributed for the first time together with MFN. We hope you find it interesting! Any feedback from our appreciated readership will be certainly most welcome!

Best Regards
Andrzej Wojtas (Ph.D.), Chief Editor MFN
