Introducing Materials Today Sustainability

Materials Today is delighted to announce the launch of a new journal: Materials Today Sustainability . This journal represent the latest addition to Elsevier’s Materials Today family; a growing collection of daughter titles, and an extended family of over 100 publications in materials sciences and related fields.

Now open for submissions, Materials Today Sustainability is a multi-disciplinary journal covering all aspects of sustainability through materials science. With a rapidly increasing population and growing demand on the planet’s resources, materials science has emerged as a critical discipline toward protecting the environment and ensuring the long term survival of future generations. Preserving the natural world, while accommodating human needs that are expanding in both volume and complexity requires the production and application of novel sustainable materials and processes designed to tackle issues spanning energy, medicine, food & water, construction, transport, manufactured goods, and the climate.

Materials Today Sustainability will publish high quality original research articles, short communications and reviews and will offer rapid review with expert advice, and maximum visibility of published articles via ScienceDirect and

Leading the new title is Editor-in-Chief Dr. Jian Liu from the University of Surrey. "The rapid growth of the population and industry has negative effects on human health and the environment. The exploitation of new sustainable materials for clean water and energy will advance our planet with ‘a green environment and a blue sky’ ” commented Dr Liu. “Given the blossoming research in green chemistry and sustainable materials, Materials Today Sustainability will be invaluable to academics, researchers and industrialists to communicate the cutting-edge of sustainable materials and green chemistry.”

Alongside the extended family of journals, the new publications join Applied Materials Today, as well as the flagship Materials Today title, which is also undergoing some exciting changes - in addition to the dedicated proceedings journal Materials Today: Proceedings, and sound science publication Materials Today Communications.

Materials Today Sustainability is now open for the submission of high quality original research articles, short communications and reviews.
