Publications of the University of Miskolc: a brief history
In 1929 the legal predecessor of the University of Miskolc in Sopron started the series of university publications with the title Publications of the Mining and Metallurgical Division of the Hungarian Academy of Mining and Forestry Engineering (Volumes I—VI).
From 1934 to 1947, the Institution had the name Faculty of Mining, Metallurgical and Forestry Engineering of the József Nádor University of Technology and Economical Sciences at Sopron. Accordingly the publications were given the title Publications of the Mining and Metallurgical Engineering Division (Volumes VII—XVI).
For the last volume before 1950, due to a further change in the name of the Institution, — Technical University, Faculties of Mining, Metallurgical and Forestry Engineering, — Publications of the Mining and Metallurgical Divisions was the title.
For some years after 1950 the Publications were temporarily suspended.
After the foundation of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering in Miskolc in 1949 and the movement of the Sopron Mining and Metallurgical Faculties to Miskolc, the Publications restarted with the general title Publications of the Technical University of Heavy Industry in 1955. Four new series, — Series A (Mining), Series B (Metallurgy), Series C (Machinery) and Series D (Natural Sciences), — were founded in 1976. These came out both in foreign languages (English, German, and Russian) and in Hungarian.
In 1990, right after the foundation of some new faculties, the university was renamed to University of Miskolc. At the same time, the structure of the Publications was reorganized so that it could follow the faculty structure. Accordingly, three new series were established: Series E (Legal Sciences), Series F (Economical Sciences) Series G (Humanities and Social Sciences). The seven series are formed by several periodicals and some publications coming out with various frequencies.
The journal Miskolc Mathematical Notes, which is published by the support of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering as a member of the Series D (Natural Sciences), is the legal successor of the Publications of the University of Miskolc, Series D, Natural Sciences, Mathematics, which came out first in 1995. Since then, altogether 7 volumes had been published, one in each year till 1999 when, for the first time, two volumes came out.
