The Journal of Materials Science publishes papers that report significant original research results on, or techniques for studying, the relationships between structure, processing, properties, and performance of materials. Topics include metals, ceramics, glasses, polymers, electrical and electronic materials, composite materials, fibers, nanostructured materials, and materials for application in the life sciences. Papers are selected for their high quality and broad interest to the materials community. The Journal of Materials Science is now firmly established as the leading source of primary communication for scientists investigating the structure and properties of all engineering materials.

  • Explores the relationship between structure, properties and uses of materials
  • Publishes reviews, full-length papers, and short communications
  • Firmly established as a forum for scientists investigating the structure and properties of all engineering materials
  • 99% of authors who answered a survey reported that they would definitely publish or probably publish in the journal again
