I am pleased to announce some exciting developments on the Materialia editorial team.  Having now completed its second year, our youngest journal has enjoyed a welcome response from the Materials community and has taken some cues from it.  We have listened and observed, and believe that this response has helped us come to a clearer understanding of future direction and how best to meet the ever-changing, growing needs of researchers in the broader materials field. 

For its first few years, Materialia has developed under the leadership of its two Editors, Baptiste Gault and Zhengwei Mao.  Presently, Dr. Mao has been asked to serve a sister journal in the family, Acta Biomaterialia, and will therefore move on from his role at Materialia.  Moving forward, Dr. Gault will take the title of Principal Editor for Materialia, and will be complemented by some new experts on his team.  https://www.journals.elsevier.com/materialia/editorial-board

First, Dr. Evelyn Yim will join as Editor, taking over the biomaterials area and the soft matter content for Materialia.  Dr. Yim is a faculty member in the Department of Chemical Engineering, University of Waterloo, Canada.  https://www.journals.elsevier.com/materialia/editorial-board/dr-evelyn-yim

Second, Dr. Sylvain Deville CNRS Research Director at the Institut Lumière Matière in Lyon, France, will also join as an Editor of Materialia, strengthening the team’s expertise in areas such as ceramics, solidification, and materials processing.  https://www.journals.elsevier.com/materialia/editorial-board/dr-sylvain-deville

Third, Dr. Sophie Le Cann, CNRS Research Scientist at the Laboratoire Modélisation et Simulation Multi Echelle, Créteil, France, will join the Materialia editorial team alongside Dr. Philip Rodenbough; both are Associate Editors for the journal.  https://www.journals.elsevier.com/materialia/editorial-board/dr-sophie-le-cann; https://www.journals.elsevier.com/materialia/editorial-board/dr-philip-rodenbough

Please join me in sending a welcome to our new editors, and congratulations to all!
