Although each regular issue of JMR covers a wide range of materials research topics, special Focus Issues devoted entirely or in part to a single topic are published several times a year. These Focus Issues allow the journal to provide a comprehensive look at the current research in a particular area of interest to JMR readers.
Call for Papers
Focus issue: Intrinsic and Extrinsic Size Effects in Materials
Submission deadline: December 1, 2018

Focus Issue on Building Hierarchical Materials via Particle Aggregation
Submission deadline: March 1, 2019
This JMR Focus Issue will provide a platform for interdisciplinary researchers from physics, chemistry, geology, biology, engineering, and materials science to share their approaches to understanding and controlling particle-based mechanisms of hierarchical material formation and design to synthesize novel hierarchical materials.
Focus Issue on Thermodynamics of Complex Solids
Submission deadline: April 1, 2019
This JMR Focus Issue will bring together experimentalists in thermodynamics and a wider circle of computational and structural scientists to understand the fundamental science of complex materials and apply this understanding to a rich variety of scientific and technological problems.
