Aims and scope

The ACSM is concerning the cutting-edge innovations in solid material science. The journal covers a broad spectrum of scientific fields, ranging all the way from metallurgy, semiconductors, solid mineral compounds, organic macromolecular compounds to composite materials. The editorial board encourages the submission of original papers that deal with all aspects of material science, including but not limited to synthesis and processing, property characterization, reactivity and reaction kinetics, evolution in service, and recycling. The papers should provide new insights into solid materials and make a significant original contribution to knowledge.

The ACSM welcomes original research papers, technical notes and review articles on various disciplines, including but not limited to:

  • Metals and alloys
  • Semi-conductors
  • Solid inorganic compounds
  • Molecular and macromolecular organic materials,
  • Composite materials
  • Synthesis and processing
  • Characterization (composition, structure, texture)
  • Properties (thermodynamic, chemical, physical, mechanical)
  • Relationships between material structure and properties
  • Reactivity and reaction kinetics
  • Evolution in service
  • Recycling
