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





Research Engineer

Maxime HARNOIS received his Ph.D. degree in 2008 from the University of Rennes (IETR Microelectronics &Microsensors group). He has joined CNRS in 2009 in BioMEMS group of the university of Lille (IEMN BioMEMS group). He is currently working at CNRS in Microelectronic &Microsensors group (IETR RENNES). His research interests include all the aspects of materials science and engineering. He has especially worked on:  i) biosensor devices, ii) materials and interfaces engineering for omniphobic coating, iii) materials and methods for flexible, stretchable and conformal electronics and iv) additive manufacturing.

Recently, he specializes in additive manufacturing. He is focusing on inkjet printing technology and has developed new additive manufacturing concepts such as Water Transfer Printing for 3D electronics. He is authors of more than 40 publications in international journals & conferences.
