La Revue de Métallurgie is forever associated with the name of the great French
Scientist who created it in 1904: Henry Le Chatelier. On the occasion of the
centenary of the Revue, the authors draw an overview of its history that is intimately
linked with the one of Metallurgy. More recently, la Revue de Métallurgie has been able
to evolve permanently with a view to afford a better service to its readers. Other French
journals have merged with the Revue and an electronic version has been introduced in
2000 as a tribute to the new century. Nevertheless other circumstances must now be
allowed for, in an ever more global World with new European industrial groups
and universities or engineering schools ever more focused on the international.
From now on, Industry and Science, the preferred couple of Henry Le Chatelier,
must be considered on a European basis. This shows the way for la Revue de Métallurgie
in the Future.
