Materials Science

Open Access at Taylor & Francis

Find the right home for your research.

We publish a broad range of fully open access materials science journals, concerned with all aspects of material science including nanomaterials and nanocomposites, ceramics, plastics, monomers, polymers and composites, catalytic science, heat treatment, and surface engineering.

Open access means rapid publication, and increased visibility and discoverability. For our authors, greater visibility results in increased readership and citations, and a chance to make an impact beyond their field to inform policymakers, media, industry and more.

I encourage you to explore the collection of Open Access titles in this field and discover more about what we can offer the global materials science community.
