JMR Focus Issues

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 

JMR Call for Papers

Focus Issue on Soft Magnetic Materials: Synthesis, Characterization, and Applications
Submission deadline: January 1, 2018 
This JMR Focus Issue will include the latest research on soft magnetic materials for next-generation power electronics, as well as in electrical machines, and coverage of advanced characterization techniques that will be vital to understanding both the nanostructure and dynamical properties in soft magnetic materials.

JMR Call for Papers

Focus Issue on 3D Printing of Biomaterials
Submission deadline: February 1, 2018 
This Focus Issue will capture the perspectives of professionals from different disciplines including science, engineering, and medicine towards application of 3D printing in biomaterials.

JMR Call for Papers

Focus Issue on Interconnect and Interface Materials for High-Temperature Energy Conversion Technologies
Submission deadline: February 1, 2018 
This JMR Focus Issue will cover advances in the synthesis, processing, and performance of both conventional alloys and unconventional compounds designed for use as electrical interconnects and interfacing materials for these high-temperature energy conversion technologies. Special attention may be given to work relating to experimental and theoretical assessment of the reaction and diffusion kinetics of these interface materials and the volatile, reactive species of energy materials.

JMR Call for Papers

Focus Issue on Fundamental Understanding and Applications of High-Entropy Alloys
Submission deadline: March 1, 2018 
This JMR Focus Issue will provide readers up-to-date information on high-entropy alloys regarding their fundamentals (e.g., formation, thermodynamics, kinetics, structures, defects, mechanical properties, functional properties, environmental properties) and applications (e.g., structural materials, coatings, nuclear materials, high-temperature materials).

JMR Call for Papers

Focus issue: Catalytic engineered materials for commercial and industrial energy applications
Submission deadline: April 1, 2018 
Editors for this JMR Focus Issue invite the materials community to share research on catalytic materials as a fundamental pillar in the development of fuel components, including commercial liquid fuels, hydrogen production and methane reforming.
