The Materials Research Society and Cambridge University Press launch emerging materials science journal

MRS Advances, a peer-reviewed and online-only multidisciplinary journal devoted to publishing new and emerging materials science has been announced by the Materials Research Society (MRS) in partnership with Cambridge University Press.

MRS Advances is designed to reflect the way materials researchers work, write, publish, and share their results. Drawing upon content to be presented at MRS Meetings, the journal’s editorial leadership will be selective to ensure only high-quality research is offered to the worldwide community. MRS Advances will be a full-color publication with articles appearing in advance of issue compilation on Cambridge Journals Online (CJO) via FirstView publication.   

MRS Advances will allow MRS to respond to author and reader demand for the latest results in materials research while adding a complementary title to the Society’s well-established publishing program. Authors will benefit from rapid peer review, speed of publication, and immediate global distribution on Cambridge’s proprietary CJO platform, alongside the MRS portfolio of other world-class publications, including MRS Bulletin, Journal of Materials Research, MRS Communications, and MRS Energy & Sustainability—A Review JournalMRS Advances’ initial articles will begin to publish in December 2015 with its first issue scheduled for January 2016.  

MRS President Oliver Kraft said, “I am pleased that MRS Advances is now a reality and am honored to help announce its launch. The goal is to develop MRS Advances into a premier journal for materials researchers around the world—where scientists aspire to publish their most exciting results and where readers expect to first learn about cutting-edge materials advances. Guided by an Editorial Board of prominent materials scientists, the journal will continue the MRS tradition of publishing the most up-to-date research for the materials community. We can all look forward to this exciting new endeavor.” 

“In order to best serve the increasing global demand for emerging materials science, we are thrilled to launch MRS Advances which will enable us to offer this audience the very best selected content identified at MRS meetings. The MRS Advances launch reflects the ongoing successful partnership between Cambridge University Press and MRS in offering top-quality publications to the global materials science community” said Simon Ross, Deputy Managing Director, Academic Publishing at Cambridge University Press.
