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 Professor

ThavasyappanThambi was born in the Indian State of Tamil Nadu in 1983. He received his B.Sc degree (2003) in Chemistry from Bharathiar University and M. Sc degree (2005) in Chemistry from University of Madras. Then, he was appointed as a Scientist in Biocon, India, where he worked on synthesis of biologically active molecules. After the 3.5 years industrial experience, he moved to Sungkyunkwan University to receive his Ph.D. degree in 2013, working in the field of microenvironment-specific polymeric nanoparticles for imaging and therapy of intractable diseases. Currently, he is working as ResearchProfessor in Theranostic Macromolecules Research Center of Sungkyunkwan University. His research is focused on development of stimuli-responsive injectable polymeric materials for sustained delivery of therapeutic agents. Thus far, he has published over 40 peer-reviewed papers and one book chapter.
