Materialia publishes its first issue!

Materialia is the newest Acta Materialia Inc. journal. It’s a materials-focused, multidisciplinary journal publishing original, peer-reviewed research articles that advance the understanding of the relationship between processing, structure, property and function of materials. Articles of any length and format find a home in Materialia, including Letters, Full-Length articles, research reports, review papers and communications. Materialia complements Acta Materialia, Scripta Materialia and Acta Biomaterialia to further the mission of Acta Materialia Inc. to support the dissemination of new knowledge within the materials science community. The scope of Materialia encompasses those of the three existing journals from Acta Materialia, Inc., and thus includes both inorganic and organic materials.

Materialia accepts direct submissions as well as manuscripts transferred from the sister journals. This offers an efficient and flexible route for the publication of articles reporting high quality research which did not find a home in the other journals of the Acta Materialia Inc. family, for example on the grounds of novelty or fit. Authors of articles judged not suitable to a sister journal may be offered direct transfer of their manuscript, either pre- or post-peer-review, into Materialia. This should accelerate the publication process by preventing reformatting, resubmission or multiple reviews of the same manuscript. Materialia is also open for direct submissions.

Here are a selection of articles from the issue
