Description

Acta Materialia provides a forum for publishing full-length, original papers and commissioned overviews that advance the in-depth understanding of the relationship between the processing, the structure and the properties of inorganic materials. Papers that have a high impact potential and/or substantially advance the field are sought. The structure encompasses atomic and molecular arrangements, chemical and electronic structures, and microstructure. Emphasis is on either the mechanical or functional behavior of inorganic solids at all length scales down to nanostructures.

The following aspects of the science and engineering of inorganic materials are of particular interest:
(i) Cutting-edge experiments and theory as they relate to the understanding of the properties,
(ii) Elucidation of the mechanisms involved in the synthesis and processing of materials specifically as they relate to the understanding of the properties,and
(iii) Characterization of the structure and chemistry of materials specifically as it relates to the understanding of the properties.

Acta Materialia welcomes papers that employ theory and/or simulation (or numerical methods) that substantially advance our understanding of the structure and properties of inorganic materials. Such papers should demonstrate relevance to the materials community by, for example, making a comparison with experimental results (in the literature or in the present study), making testable microstructural or property predictions or elucidating an important phenomenon. Papers that focus primarily on model parameter studies, development of methodology or those employing existing software packages to obtain standard or incremental results are discouraged.

Short communications and comments to papers published in Acta Materialia may be submitted to Scripta Materialia.
