Aim and Scope About Materials Materials (ISSN 1996-1944) is an open access journal of related scientific research and technology development. It publishes reviews, regular research papers (articles) and short communications. Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical results in as much detail as possible. Therefore, there is no restriction on the length of the papers. The full experimental details must be provided so that the results can be reproduced. Materials provides a forum for publishing papers which advance the in-depth understanding of the relationship between the structure, the properties or the functions of all kinds of materials. Chemical syntheses, chemical structures and mechanical, chemical, electronic, magnetic and optical properties and various applications will be considered. Topics Covered Class of materials include ceramics, glasses, polymers (plastics), semiconductors, magnetic materials, medical implant materials and biological materials, silica and carbon materials, metals and metallic alloys. All kinds of functional materials including material for dentistry. Composites, coatings and films, pigments. Classes of materials such as ionic crystals; covalent crystals; metals; intermetallics. Materials science or materials engineering. Nanoscience and nanotechnology will be considered also. Characterization techniques such as electron microscopy, x-ray diffraction, calorimetry, nuclear microscopy (HEFIB), Rutherford backscattering, neutron diffraction, etc. Fundamental research: Condensed matter physics and materials physics. Continuum mechanics and statistics. Mechanics of materials. Tribology (friction, lubrication and wear). Solid-state physics. Several topical special issues will be published.
