The Tribology Book Series, under the Editorship of Professor Duncan Dowson, CBE, FRS, FREng grew into a major and seminal archival source for definitive books on the subject of Classical Tribology, as well as providing a publication base for the "flagship" Tribology Symposium organised jointly between the Universities of Leeds and Lyon. Over a period of 25 years more than 40 volumes have appeared which now amount to a major reference source in the Tribology literature.
Professor Dowson's retirement from the Series Editor's position at the end of 2002 has prompted a widening of the scope to include other facets of the now recognised and expanding topic of Interface Engineering. The new Series Editor is Professor Brian Briscoe of Imperial College London, currently Editor-in-Chief of Tribology International, and to reflect these developments the series has been renamed Tribology and Interface Engineering. The expanded content will now include Colloid and Multiphase Systems; Rheology; Colloids; Tribology and Erosion; Processing Systems; Machining; Interfaces and Adhesion; as well as the classical Tribology content which will continue to include Friction; Contact Damage; Lubrication and Wear at all length scales. To this end a new Editorial Board has been assembled to include international experts who will seek to drive the new mission of the book series in the future.
