Materials Technology is converting to Open Access from its 2023 volume.
Launched in 1987, formerly known as Materials and Processing Report, Materials 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.
