Alan Leshner joins the Elsevier Materials Science Council

Former CEO of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) joins the Elsevier Materials Science Council.

Elsevier puts data in the spotlight

Data can be shared and reused freely, through some new initiatives now running at Elsevier and the Materials Today family of journals.

Researchers have created new structures that exploit the electromechanical properties of specific nanofibers to stretch to up to seven times their length.

First proof of single attosecond pulse generation at the carbon K-edge.

First fully validated method of detecting drugs of abuse in exhaled breath.

First ever photograph of light behaving as both wave and stream of particles.

Scientists have captured the first real-time nanoscale images of lithium dendrite structures known to degrade lithium-ion batteries.

We are very pleased to welcome nominations for awards in the Journal of Quantitative Spectroscopy and Radiative Transfer for early-career researchers.

The journal Applied Surface Science is delighted to invite young researchers to apply for the Frans Habraken Best Paper Award.
