Materials Science

Materials science is an interdisciplinary field involving the properties of matter and its applications to various areas of science and engineering. This science investigates the relationship between the structure of materials at atomic or molecular scales and their macroscopic properties.
Journals
Materials Science and Technology is an international forum for the publication of refereed contributions covering fundamental and technological aspects of materials science and engineering.
Progress in Materials Science publishes authoritative reviews of recent advances in the science of materials and their exploitation in engineering. Emphasis is placed on the fundamental aspects of the subject, particularly those concerning microstructure and its relationship to properties (mechanical, chemical, electrical, magnetic and optical).
Materials Technology: Advanced Performance Materials provides an international medium for the communication of progress in the field of functional materials (advanced materials in which composition, structure and surface are functionalised to confer specific, applications-oriented properties). The focus is on materials for biomedical, electronic, photonic and energy applications.
Progress in Polymer Science publishes state-of-the-art overview articles by internationally recognized authorities in polymer science and engineering, one of the fastest growing disciplines. The journal provides a link between original articles, innovations published in patents, and the up-to-date knowledge of technology.
The central aim of Mechanics of Advanced Materials and Structures is to promote the dissemination of significant developments and publish state-of-the-art reviews and technical discussions of previously published papers dealing with mechanics aspects of advanced materials and structures.
The atomic and nanoscale structure of materials used as catalysts significantly influences their performance; and correlating structure with activity is crucial for catalyst optimisation and innovation.

Surface Science Spectra offers convenient and easy access to spectral data from on-going international industrial and scholarly research. The Surface Science Spectra journal represents the hard-copy publication of data entered in to the AVS surface science spectra database.
ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is being launched with the goal of becoming the international publication of choice for the interdisciplinary community of chemists, engineers, physicists and biologists focusing on how newly-discovered materials and interfacial processes can be developed and used for specific applications. The journal will publish full length articles and letters from researchers in academia and industry in addition to featuring comments and forums dedicated to advancing applied materials research.
Advanced Biomaterials, includes international and interdisciplinary peer-reviewed contributions in the area of biomaterials used in medicine or biomedical engineering. The section will be issued initially four times a year in Advanced Engineering Materias.
Corrosion Engineering, Science and Technology provides broad international coverage of research and practice in corrosion processes and corrosion control. Peer-reviewed contributions address all aspects of corrosion engineering and corrosion science; there is strong emphasis on effective design and materials selection to combat corrosion and the journal carries failure case studies to further knowledge in these areas.
International Materials Reviews publishes peer-reviewed critical assessments of the literature on all aspects of materials science and engineering. Its aim is to provide timely, authoritative introductions to current thinking, developments and research in carefully selected topics.
Science and Technology of Welding and Joining is an international peer-reviewed journal covering both the basic science and applied technology of welding and joining.
Chemistry of Materials is devoted to the publication of original contributions on forefront, fundamental research at the interface of chemistry, chemical engineering, and materials science. Both theoretical and experimental studies which focus on the preparation or understanding of materials with unusual or useful properties are relevant.
Aims and Scope Acta Materialia provides a forum for publishing full-length, original papers and commissioned overviews which advance the in-depth understanding of the relationship between the structure and the properties of materials. The structure encompasses atomic and molecular arrangements, chemical and electronic structures, and microstructure.
The recent and projected growth of the polymer industry throughout the world emphasizes the need for the presentation and understanding of reliable polymer property information which can help the designer, fabricator and consumer in optimizing the choice and use of polymers, particularly as engineering materials. The International Journal of Polymeric Materials meets this need. It also is a journal of record and provides a forum on new and old materials.
