Materials is a peer reviewed, open access, scientific journal with broad topical interest in materials science and engineering. It is published online monthly (electronic only) by MDPI. The Editor-in-chief is Prof. Dr. Andreas Taubert of University of Potsdam in Germany. The types of articles in this journal are reviews, regular research papers, and short communications (letters). There are also special issues and book reviews.
Aims and scope
One of the journal's aims is to publish open access material related to scientific research and technology development in the fields of interest. A notable facet of this journal is the no restriction guideline regarding the length of contributed papers. This is because there is a desire for contributing authors to publish their experimental and theoretical results in as much detail as possible. Disclosing full experimental details and emphasizing reproducible results extends this notable facet of the journal.
Another focus of Materials (journal) is to provide a forum for advancing in-depth understanding of the interrelationships of structures, properties, or functions of many types of materials. Chemical structures and chemical syntheisis are subjects of interest. Property categories such as mechanical, chemical, electronic, magnetic and optical properties are also publishable topics. The variety of applications are also part of this journal's aim and scope.
The following areas of research encompass the topics covered for this journal.
Class of materials
There is a variety of class of materials which are of interest to this journal. This includes ceramics, glasses, and polymers (plastics). Other classes include semiconductors, magnetic materials, medical implant materials and biological materials. Further classes, which are part of this journal's scope are silica and carbon materials, along with metals and metallic alloys. Papers on various functional materials, such as dentistry materials, composite materials, coatings, films, and pigments are also included in the scope. Papers on more classes of materials such as intermatallics, covalent crystals, and ionic crystals are also included.
As previously mentioned broad topic areas are Materials science or materials engineering which includes Nanoscience and nanotechnology. Fundamental research in Condensed matter physics, Materials physics, Continuum mechanics, and statistics are included in the scope of this journal. Basic research is also conducted in Mechanics of materials, Tribology (friction, lubrication and wear), and Solid-state physics.
Also included for publication are characterization techniques such as electron microscopy, x-ray diffraction, neutron diffraction, nuclear microscopy (HEFIB), Rutherford backscattering, and calorimetry, among other techniques.
