Online International Journal of Materials & Engineering is a peer-reviewed open acess journal that publishes original research articles as well as review articles in all areas of Materialscience. Progress in Materials Science publishes authoritative and critical reviews of recent advances in the science of materials and their exploitation inengineering and other applications. The reviews, both experimental and theoretical, provide general background information as well as a critical assessment on topics in a state of flux. New and emerging theoretical and experimental topics are emphasized in the disciplines of condensed matter physics, physical chemistry, materials, and electrical, chemical and mechanical engineering. Cross-disciplinary engineering and science specialties are also included.
This journal involves the study of the relationships between the synthesis, processing, structure, properties, and performance of materials that enable an engineering function . The intellectual origins of materials science stem from the Enlightenment, when researchers began to use analytical thinking from chemistry, physics, andengineering to understand ancient, phenomenological observations in metallurgy and mineralogy.. Materials Science or Engineering forms a bridge between the sciences and engineering. It allows theory to be put into practice in a way which benefits everybody, since everything we do every day involves materials. All papers will be blind reviewed and accepted papers will be published by the HelicsGroup.
