Materials Technology

Now An Open Access Journal

Submit Your Research

Read the latest open access research published in the journal

Materials Technology is converting to Open Access from its 2023 volume.

Launched in 1987, formerly known as Materials and Processing ReportMaterials Technology has established an international forum for professionals and academics to exchange novel ideas and disseminate knowledge covering every aspect of materials science especially in the field of functional materials.

Having evolved with the changing research landscape for over three decades, Materials Technology is now set to make another change as it transitions to a fully Open Access journal from its next volume year (2023). While this change will allow us to make the journal even more accessible—thereby increasing the readership and impact of our author’s research, we will also continue to subject all submissions to our vigorous review process.

Going forward, the journal will look to publish research on functional materials inclusive of biomaterials, packaging materials and flexible electronics, specifically, advanced materials in which composition, structure and surface are functionalised to confer specific, applications-oriented properties. We would also welcome proposals for special issues in the above- mentioned research fields.

As part of this transition, all manuscripts received after 7 June 2022 will proceed through Materials Technology’s Open Access submission portal. Authors who submit after this date, if their article is accepted for publication, will be required to pay an article publishing charge (APC) which can be covered by their funder or institution.

Materials Technology is particularly interested in receiving manuscripts on:

  • Functional materials

  • Advanced biomaterials

  • Packaging materials

  • Flexible electronics

  • Materials for energy storage and harvesting

  • Advanced magnetic materials

  • Biomaterials considered in bulk, thin film, nanotube/nanofiber or particulate form

  • Surface engineering for biocompatibility and other bio-functional properties


R. Devesh K. Misra is Professor in the Department of Metallurgical, Materials and Biomedical Engineering at The University of Texas at El Paso.

He obtained his undergraduate degree in Metallurgical Engineering from the Department of Metallurgical Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology (Banaras Hindu University), India and PhD in Metallurgy and Materials Science from University of Cambridge, UK.

Professor Misra’s interdisciplinary research interests include advanced high strength-high toughness combination metals and alloys for structural and functional applications, materials for energy systems, biological materials science, nanostructured and cellular structured materials, additive manufacturing and application of artificial intelligence/machine learning to materials science. These research programs involve the use of a broad spectrum of materials characterization techniques that include electron microscopy, X-ray diffraction, EBSD, atomic force microscopy, and 3D-atom probe.

Why publish open access?

  • Increase the visibility and readership of your research by publishing in a fully open access journal.

  • Make an impact beyond the academy by making your article accessible to anyone, anywhere (including readers in industry and even policy-makers).

  • Freely share your work with no restrictions or paywall.

  • Retain ownership of your research through our unrestrictive publishing agreements.

  • Discounts and waivers for researchers in developing countries are available. The journal will also consider requests for discretionary APC waivers. Find out if your institution or country has an open access agreement to publish with us.
