The Journal of Materials Science publishes reviews, full-length papers, and short Communications recording original research results on, or techniques for studying the relationship between structure, properties, and uses of materials. The subjects are seen from international and interdisciplinary perspectives covering areas including metals, ceramics, glasses, polymers, electrical materials, composite materials, fibers, nanostructured materials, nanocomposites, and biological and biomedical materials. The Journal of Materials Science is now firmly established as the leading source of primary communication for scientists investigating the structure and properties of all engineering materials
The Journals reports principally the achievements of materials science and engineering all over the world, putting the stress on the original research papers, review articles invited by editor, letters, research notes with novelty as well as brief of scientific achievement, covering a broad spectrum of materials science and technology, encompassing:
• metallic materials
• inorganic nonmetallic materials
• composite materials
I would like to thank the Journal of Materials science and the members of the editorial board for giving me the opportunity to become a new Journal editor. As a new editor of Materials science, I am very excited about this nomination and accept the challenges associated with serving as an editor for Material science. My vision as a new editor is to process and peer-review manuscript submissions in a timely fashion, accept submitted articles based on scientific merit score, and to encourage investigators to submit novel and thought-provoking articles. With the online submission system, the Journal of Material science welcomes the submissions from local and international investigators.
Materials Science is an international Open Access journal devoted to publishing peer-reviewed, high quality, original papers in the field of Materials science. We publish the following article types: original research articles, reviews, editorials, letters, and conference reports.
Materials Scientific Networks:
Materials Leadership & Committees consider proposals for Special Issues Editors will return a decision on your proposal within Two weeks of receipt. To enrich our vision of making the scientific information available at an ease of access, Materials Leadership & Committees initiated special issue for the open access journals. All the articles published under a special issue focuses on a single topic providing the complete information about the ongoing research providing more insight on an emphasized topic of research enabling the readers access wide forecasted information on a particular topic Issue.
Special Issue Proposals: Special Issue deals with focused research topics of high interest, falling under the scope of the Journal. Special Issues are the pool of articles under a current topic selected from the Ongoing Research under specific discipline. The aim of the Special Issue is to provide a platform for the researchers to understand the recent advancements and challenges in particular areas of research. These articles will provide an opportunity to the readers to understand and access the scientific information.
We encourage potential scientists to organize the Special Issue in their field of interests that fits within the Journal scope. This will provide an opportunity to increase the visibility of the Guest Editors. The Special Issue Titles may be from any basic and clinical area of Science, Technology and Medicine. People interested in publishing a special issue are advised to consider the following guidelines.
Your proposal should contain:
By submitting a Special Issue proposal to Materials Leadership & Committees, you agree to abide by the Special Issue Editor Protocol should your proposal be accepted
Special issue articles are published immediately upon their acceptance and are released under upcoming regular issues. Special Issues are invited throughout the year. For more information or any queries about the special issues, please write us to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
Promoting Your Special Issue
Materials Leadership & Committees will work with Guest Editors to increase the visibility of the Special Issue in the months leading up to the submission deadline and once it has been published.
What Materials Leadership & Committees will do:
1. Materials Leadership & Committees will circulate your Call for Papers to the Materials Editorial Board, targeted mailing lists, and relevant AoM listservs. It will also advertise your Call on the Material websites and other social media platforms. It will re-issue the Call at appropriate intervals.
2. Once the Special Issue is published, announcements will be made to the Materials Editorial Board, targeted mailing lists, and relevant AoM listservs as well as on the Materials websites social media platforms.
3. Free access to the Special Issue will be made available in the website to Guest Editors and readers.
What is expected of Guest Editors?
1. We expect that Guest Editors will circulate the Call for Papers within their own personal networks, social media groups, and at any relevant conferences or workshops they may attend.
2. If it has not already been suggested as part of the proposal, consideration should be given to organizing a conference or workshop either to generate submissions or to aid in the development of submitted papers. A symposium or PDW at a well-known conference may also be considered.
3. We expect Guest Editors to identify up to 50 scholars for whom the Special Issue will be particularly relevant

Professor Jiang-Gao Mao, 52 years old, is research professor at State Key Laboratory of Structure Chemistry, Fujian Institute of Research on the Structure of Matter, Chinese Academy of Sciences. He received his Ph.D. degree in chemistry in 1994. During his PhD period, he focused his research on the syntheses and crystal structures of lanthanide complexes with crown ethers. After post-doctoral studies at Fujian Institute of Research on the Structure of Matter, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Chinese University of Hong Kong, University of Houston and Texas A&M University at USA, he joined State Key Laboratory of Structure Chemistry, Fujian Institute of Research on the Structure of Matter, Chinese Academy of Sciences in 2002. From 2002 to 2010, he focused his research on metal phosphonates and polar intermetallics. Since 2010, his research activities are mainly centered on the syntheses, crystal structures and SHG properties of new inorganic solids, including metal iodates, metal selenites and tellurites, and metal borates. He developed several new synthetic routes for SHG materials, such as the combination of selenite and borate (Se2B2O7) and combinations of two types of p conjugated groups (Pb2(BO3)(NO3)), and introduction of fluoride into metal iodates (Bi(IO3)F2), these materials exhibit large SHG responses, high thermal stabilities and are phase matchable. He has published more than 200 research papers in international journals including J. Am. Chem. Soc., Angew Chem. In. Ed., Chem. Mater., Chem. Commun., Chem. Eur. J. and Inorg. Chem., and these papers have been cited over 6000 times.
