JOM is a technical, peer-reviewed journal devoted to exploring the many aspects of materials science and engineering within the broad topical areas of light metals, structural materials, functional materials, extraction and processing, and materials processing and manufacturing. JOM strives to balance the interests of the laboratory and the marketplace by reporting academic, industrial, and government-sponsored work from around the world.

JOM is a monthly journal of The Minerals, Metals, and Materials Society (TMS) that seeks to:

  • Explore the full range of materials science and engineering
  • Report on state-of-the-art processing, fabrication, design, and application of metals, plastics, composites, and other materials
  • Cover a broad scope of topics, including extraction, characterization, industrial and manufacturing developments, resource and supply chain issues, and life-cycle and sustainability practices
  • Cover specific areas including: additive manufacturing; biomaterials; composite materials; computational materials science and engineering; corrosion; electrometallurgy and pyrometallurgy; electronic packaging and interconnection materials; energy conversion and storage; high-temperature alloys; hydrometallurgy; integrated computational materials engineering; magnetic materials; nanomaterials; nuclear materials; powder materials; recycling and environmental technologies; refractory materials; surface engineering; and thin films and interfaces. Other coverage includes education highlights, interviews, opinion, and TMS news.

  • COVID-19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.

  • JOM Editorial Calendar

    Potential authors should consult the Editorial Calendar to find a scheduled technical topic that most closely matches the content of the submission, and to confirm that the topic is open to unsolicited submissions.
