MRS Bulletin is one of the most widely recognized and highly respected publications in advanced materials research. Each month, MRS Bulletin provides a comprehensive overview of a specific materials theme topic, along with materials news and features, industry and policy developments, and MRS and materials-community news and events. Written by leading experts, the overview theme articles are useful references for specialists, but are also presented at a level understandable to a broad scientific audience.  In 2021, the Bulletin launches MRS Bulletin Impact, a premier outlet for high-profile original materials research, published monthly as a section of MRS Bulletin.  

The annual MRS Bulletin Postdoctoral Publication Prize recognizes postdoctoral researchers for their intellectual merit, the impact of their research and scholarship, and their interest in science communications and scientific writing.

In addition, MRS Bulletin presents MRS OnDemand webinars each month.  These events complement the MRS Bulletin’s monthly theme topic.
