Call for Papers
Manuscripts are being solicited for MRS Communications, a full-color, high-impact journal focused on groundbreaking work across the broad spectrum of materials research.
Published jointly by the Materials Research Society (MRS) and Cambridge University Press, MRS Communications offers a rapid but rigorous peer-review process and time to publication. An aggressive production schedule will bring your article to online publication and a global audience within a target 14-day process from acceptance.
We are pleased to announce that MRS Communications has been selected for coverage in the Thomson Reuters Science Citation Index Expanded® (SciSearch®). The Citation Index recognizes journals of key importance in their subject areas and provides a guide to the essential must-read titles in the field. MRS Communications has also been selected for Thomson Reuters' Journal Citation Reports® Science Edition and Current Contents/Physical, Chemical & Earth Sciences®.
