Get an Insight into the IOM3 Journals

Get an insight into the key research published by the journals of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3) today. We have worked with the journals' Editors to produce an article collection that provides an overview of the impact the Institute is having on the community.

The IOM3 journals, like the institute itself, encompass the whole materials cycle, from exploration and extraction, through characterisation, processing, forming, finishing and application, to product recycling and land reuse and the articles in this collection reflect this.
