Aims & Scope
Journal of Materials Research (JMR)
is a premier archival journal devoted to publishing materials science research that demonstrates a significant scientific advance or understanding in materials science. The
is particularly interested in advanced materials topics involving ceramics, metals, polymers, combinations, and material combinations related to energy, electrical, magnetic, optical, structural properties and related applications.
- Advanced characterization methods and techniques
- Computational materials science when coupled with experimentation
- Fundamental materials science
- Interfacial science as relates to material process understanding and improvements
- Material property enhancements through advances in materials processing
- Material property enhancements through material design (especially Materials Genome related)
- Material combinations and design that improve system performance
- Nanoscience and nanotechnology
The following topics are outside the scope of JMR—asphalt, concrete, cement, naturally-occurring materials such as clay, minerals, rice husks and traditional materials, and statistically designed experiments—unless a significant improvement in properties or materials science is demonstrated.

Although each issue of JMR covers a wide range of materials research topics, special focus issues entirely or partly devoted to a single topic are occasionally published. These focus issues allow the journal to provide a comprehensive look at the current research in a particular area of interest to JMR readers.Read More »

Back To Top
of the constitutional objectives of the Materials Research Society is to
disseminate information relevant to the interest of the materials community.
The MRS Bulletin,Journal of
Materials Research, MRS Communications, MRS Energy & Sustainability
– A Review Journal, and the MRS Symposium Proceedings fulfill part of this
mission by publishing the results of original scientific research and overviews
of the field. The policy outlined here has been endorsed by MRS to ensure that the
information has been generated, processed, and published using the highest
ethical standards. Read More »
