Acta Materialia Book Series

Aim & scope

The Acta Materialia Book Series aims at providing a comprehensive, practical coverage of both core and advanced research topics in materials science. In addition to monographs on materials science fundamentals and new subfields in materials science, the book series features volumes on key practical aspects of research such as methods and protocols, supporting interdisciplinary research, and enabling the transition of new research into the applications realm.

Authored by leading experts, each volume in the series focuses on a particular sub-field within materials science and engineering, frequently exemplified with specific case-studies, from structural materials to advances in use-inspired device oriented functional materials and bio-inspired materials research.
