In already distant 1979, The Council of Faculty of Engineering in Kragujevac had brought a decision, at the proposal of the Scientific-Educational Board, on beginning with publication of a scientific journal entitled "TRIBOLOGY IN INDUSTRY''.
The origins of the entitled "TRIBOLOGY IN INDUSTRY" journal lie in Publications of Laboratory for Metal Cutting and Tibology, that were Published occasionally, as editions of Faculty of Engineering, since I974. During that period, from 1974. till 1978., 10 issues were published, in which the results were presented of the scientific-research work, realized through projects, mainly form the area of the tribology of metal cutting.
Since 1991. until present time, the Journal is edited by an international Editorial Board whose members are famous scientists from several countries (Serbia, Greece, Romania, Bulgaria, Belarus, Poland, USA, India, Bangladesh). The core of the Boards consists of scientific Workers from Faculty of Engineering from Kragujevac, Faculty of Mechanical Engineering from Belgrade, and Faculty of Technical Sciences from Novi Sad.
In past thirty years, the largest number of papers were published by authors that were employed at universities, scientific institutions and research departments in leading industrial systems. However, in last years, are present more and more papers of authors that are working in industrial systems on jobs of products development , technology of maintenance of the production and other equipment.
The Journal TRIBOLOGY IN INDUSTRY all these years was, and still is, the only scientific Journal, from the area of Tribology, in Serbia and within wider former Yugoslavian region. Tribology in Industry is the official journal of the Serbian Tribology Society.
