Materials Science

We publish high-impact journals across the whole of materials science, in biomaterials and polymers, in ceramics and composites, in alloys and compounds, in metals and in new materials for energy applications. We publish around 16,500 articles per year across our entire list and work globally with some of the best minds in the field to lead our journals. To support our programme, we also run successful conferences such as Frontiers in Polymer Science, Hybrid Materials, Nano Today, and NuMat: Nuclear Materials, to name a few. And in 2012, we will roll out a number of new applications across mobile platforms, designed to help authors get their article published as rapidly as possible.

MSEC is now indexed by MEDLINE!

We are extremely proud and honored that MSEC is now indexed by MEDLINE and all articles pushed in MSEC will appear on PubMed within 2 weeks of acceptance.

PubMed comprises over 22 million citations for biomedical literature from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books. PubMed citations and abstracts include the fields of biomedicine and health, covering portions of the life sciences, behavioral sciences, chemical sciences, and bioengineering. PubMed also provides access to additional relevant web sites and links to the other NCBI molecular biology resources.

Materials Awards

Acta Student Award

The Acta Journals that is Acta Materialia, Scripta Materialia and Acta Biomaterialia, are pleased to announce the Acta Student Awards. There will be six awards of $2,000, two each for Acta Materialia, Scripta Materialia and Acta Biomaterialia.

Acta Biomaterialia Gold Medal Award

James M. Anderson, M.D., Ph.D. will be awarded the 2013 Acta Biomaterialia Gold Medal award. The award recognizes undisputed world leaders who have demonstrated excellence and leadership in biomaterials, including basic science and translation to practice.

Dr. Anderson will receive the Acta Biomaterialia Gold Medal Award at the Society for Biomaterials Conference in Boston, MA, USA, in April.

Acta Materialia Gold Medal Award:

André Pineau is the winner of the 2013 Acta Materialia Gold Medal. The winner of the 2013 Acta Materialia Gold Medal is André Pineau, currently Emeritus Professor at the Ecole des Mines de Paris's Centre des Matériaux.

Professor Pineau will receive his Gold Medal during the December 2013 MRS Fall meeting in Boston, MA. A symposium, entitled "Materials: Fundamentals of Fatigue and Fracture", will be held in connection with this award.
