6. Peer Review
Materials Science in Additive Manufacturing aims to bridge the cutting-edge research between additive manufacturing and the entire spectrum of materials science. The journal covers all applied and fundamentals of processing, synthesis, structure, composition, properties and performance of materials designed or manipulated for additive manufacturing. The journal covers a wide scope of innovative techniques, processes, methods, and applications. Topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to:
- Theory and modelling
- Artificial intelligence
- Metals and alloys
- Magnetic materials
- Smart materials
- Materials for electronics
- Characterization techniques
Materials Science in Additive Manufacturing provides a platform for publishing articles that advance the in-depth understanding of relationship between the processing, structure and properties of materials. The journal also welcomes papers that employ theories, numerical methods and/or simulations that demonstrate relevance to the additive manufacturing community.
The journal publishes original research articles, reviews, perspectives, and other editorial content of general interest to the international readership.
