My name is Dr. John A. Francis, and I invite you to submit your research to a Thematic Issue of Materials Science and Technology focusing on Nuclear Materials. I heartily encourage you to contribute your research to this special issue in the form of reviews, original research, or short critical assessments. Articles should fit within the scope of the journal, but I am also seeking ground breaking research with an emphasis on material, structure and structure-property relationships.
Materials Science and Technology covers fundamental and technological aspects of materials science and engineering with a particular interest in the continuum from understanding of process routes leading to the generation of microstructure, through characterisation and understanding of how microstructure is controlled and manipulated, to the control and prediction of relevant engineering properties.
Why Publish with Materials Science and Technology?
In addition to the prestige of being published in a thematic issue of one of the IOM3 journals, authors will also benefit from the following:
- Have your research validated by a robust peer review process;
- Increase your opportunities for future collaboration as a contributor to a journal with an Impact Factor of 1.008;
- Share your research with 50 free e-prints and tips on promoting your article courtesy of our Author Resources site;
- Immediately see the impact your research made in the community: track downloads, citations, and the Altmetric Score of your article on My Authored Works;
- and much more!
As Editor of this Thematic Issue, I am particularly seeking research that provides an insight into:
a) The development of novel materials for fission or fusion applications;
b) Developments in the processing of nuclear materials, and linking those developments to the properties of the materials;
c) Advances in our understanding of the relationship between material structure and the performance of materials in nuclear environments;
d) Advances in the modelling of the behaviour of nuclear materials, either in nuclear environments or during processing operations prior to service.
I invite you to send in your submissions by 30th June 2017, via the journal's Editorial Manager site.
