Rem: Rev. Esc. Minas vol.65 no.1 Ouro Preto Jan./Mar. 2012
The beginning of a new year is always a good moment and this year is no exception, since we celebrate one more year of REM's existence; 76 years reflecting the dedication of the whole team and our readers.
REM's very first editorial stated: "It is one more academic venture towards the fulfillment Ouro Preto's dream." This was the first step toward becoming a national publication, which in turn, and in keeping up with trends, has now led to it becoming an international magazine.
This development is in compliance with those who created REM and expressed their goal for the magazine in their first issue. They wrote: "It has been the constant preoccupation that for all who pass within the 'House of Gorceix' (the founder of the School of Mines of Ouro Preto), there will be access to a publication that would facilitate contact with the technical and scientific world."
The year 2012 will be a year of changes at REM: First of all, articles will now be presented in English; and then, besides the usual four issues, there will be a special issue on Stainless Steel and emission of our Special Supplement for the second year.
Our thanks to all who have give support to our venture.
