Publishing Alliance

MRS publishes with Springer Nature



Materials research plays a critical role in advancing science and technology, manufacturing processes, establishing new businesses and driving economic prosperity.

These printable resources include examples of how materials impact our lives, showcasing advances due to investments in materials research and highlighting areas where additional investments are needed. They are written for the lay public to facilitate communication with policy makers (and others) on matters of importance to the materials science community. Additional topics are developed each year based upon the priorities and challenges.
