International Journal of Minerals, Metallurgy and Materials (formerly known as Journal of University of Science and Technology Beijing) is an international journal devoted to publishing original research articles (and occasional invited reviews) on all aspects of minerals processing, physical metallurgy, process metallurgy, and materials science and processing. Coverage is well-rounded from minerals characterization and developments in extraction to the fabrication and performance of materials. The journal welcomes articles on the relationships among the processing, structure and properties of minerals, metals, and materials. Specific areas of interest are nano materials, new metallic materials, advanced ceramics, metallic matrix composites, functional materials and more.
