Do you have an idea for a new book or
book series on a materials-related topic? What about journals? Is there
a materials topic that is underrepresented, or shows exceptional
potential for growth within the MRS publications portfolio? If you have
a suggestion for a new publication, or are looking for “just the right
publisher” for your new book, then contact Betsy Fleischer, principal development editor for MRS and share your thoughts.
Why Publish With MRS?
Because the Materials Research Society does not just serve the materials community, we ARE the materials community.
The Materials Research Society is built on a culture of collaboration
across disciplines, around the world, and from science to applications.
MRS publications embrace such diverse thought and reflect a dynamic
As not-for-profit organizations, MRS and our publishing partner, Cambridge University Press, share
values in service to advancing materials science and education. Fair
compensation for authors is balanced with product pricing accessible to
We are selective and looking for pioneering print and electronic products for a global community of students, researchers and practitioners. A team of materials science leaders guides and assesses new grassroots product ideas versus MRS values, strategic objectives and the competitive environment.
- MRS has materials science expertise and access to high-quality scientific editorial talent. We are interdisciplinary and connected to the relevant leading-edge materials communities.
- In partnership with Cambridge University Press, we offer international excellence in scholarly publishing, with editorial, production, marketing and sales teams all held to the highest standards.
- The MRS/Cambridge collaboration brings with it an immediate
reader/subscriber base of 16,000+ MRS members and over 2,500 academic,
industrial and government libraries worldwide—providing unparalleled and targeted scope, reach and impact.
In this MRS TV interview from the 2013 MRS Fall Meeting, Richard Vaia, chair of the MRS New Publications Products Subcommittee, discusses MRS' publishing partnership with Cambridge University Press.
The MRS/Cambridge University Press Partnership
print and electronic publications have long been a staple of the
R&D community, providing a vast collection of high-quality
information on critical, cutting-edge materials research. From our
earliest publications—MRS Bulletin, Journal of Materials Research (JMR) and the MRS Symposium Proceedings Series—to the newer MRS Online Proceedings Library (OPL), MRS Communications and Materials360 Online, the goal has always been to identify and respond to the evolving needs of the materials community.
Our partnership with Cambridge University
Press reinforces our commitment to increasing the accessibility of the
current MRS suite of publications and to building a broader and more
global communications portfolio. Together, we are developing
innovative new journals, books, book series, online products and other
resources encompassing the full range of materials science and
engineering. Together, we share a dedication to high-quality
content and editorial integrity. And together, we believe in providing
professional, sustained, enthusiastic and prompt support throughout the
publication process—from concept to distribution.
