Open Access Materials Science

at Taylor & Francis

At Taylor & Francis, we feel strongly about representing a broad range of topics in the materials science journals we publish and disseminating that research as widely as possible. One element that truly propels these journals is open access publication. We are committed to open science and publish a range of fully open journals for materials science research, covering topics ranging from nanomaterials and nanocomposites, to ceramics, to plastics, to monomers, polymers and composites, to catalytic science, to heat treatment and surface engineering.

Open access means rapid publication, and increased visibility and discoverability. This materials science research is available to anyone to read for free, around the world. For our authors, greater visibility results in increased readership and citations, and a chance to make an impact beyond their field. Open access research informs policymakers, media, industry and more.

We welcome you to explore these journals and discover what Taylor & Francis can do for you, your research, and the global materials science community.
