If you are a conference organizer interested in publishing conference proceedings in the journal, please complete the proposal template and email the editorial team at, taking note of the following requirements for eligibility:

  • Your proposal must be sent via an institutional email address (i.e. .ac or .edu);
  • The conference website must be live and a link included in your proposal document.  Conferences without a website will not be considered for inclusion.
  • Please include CVs + Publication Lists of all nominated Guest Editors alongside the completed proposal form.  Links to online institutional profiles (preferred) or Google Scholar/ResearchGate/ (for example) are appreciated, but not formally required. 

Materials Today: Proceedings provides the materials science community with a fast and flexible route to the publication of research presented at national and international scientific conferences in the field of materials science, technology and engineering.

Guest Editors are responsible for quality control, the peer review process and the content of individual conference papers. Conference proceedings are only permitted for publication in Materials Today: Proceedings following approval of a completed conference proposal form. All papers must be original, and peer-review is mandatory.

The journal is indexed in Scopus (Elsevier) and the CPCI (Thomson Reuters, Web of Science.

What can Materials Today: Proceedings offer authors and conference organizers?

Accepted proceedings are published on ScienceDirect; organizers are also welcome to order optional print issues, CDs and USBs. Organizers and individual orders are also welcome to order small volumes of print issues via the Elsevier Webshop. There is no limit to the amount of papers an issue can contain.

Templates (both Latex and Word) are provided to assist in the publication and the final online papers contain linked references, XML versions and DOI numbers.

Please note: The use of the journal's editorial submission platform - for the submission of manuscripts and to conduct the peer review process - is now a requirement for all articles published in Materials Today: Proceedings. The supply of manuscripts (and peer review reports) outside of the editorial submission platform (such as via email of FTP), is no longer supported.

Is the journal open access?

The journal offers full open access, hybrid open access and traditional subscription-based publishing options. The cost for both open access issues and open access articles is USD150 per paper.
