Materials Science and Technology Call for Papers: Thematic Issue on Pearlitic Steel Wires

Materials Science and Technology

My name is Sir Harry Bhadeshia, and I am pleased to invite you to contribute to a forthcoming Thematic Issue of Materials Science and Technology on the theme of Pearlitic Steel Wires. Articles submitted can be reviews, original research or short critical assessments. They should fit within the scope of the journal, with 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!

Manuscript Submissions

As Editor of this Thematic Issue, I am particularly seeking research that provides an insight into:

  • the structure and properties of cold-drawn wires;
  • the evolution of the final state;
  • the effects of annealing, strain and drawing;
  • and high-resolution characterisation.

I invite you to send in your submissions by 31st July 2017, via the journal's Editorial Manager site.
