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.

JMR Call for Papers

Focus Issue on Plasticity and Fracture at the Nanoscales – Advances in In Situ Experimentation Techniques Enabling Novel and Extreme Materials/Nanocomposite Design
Submission deadline: October 1, 2018 
This JMR Focus Issue will provide readers up-to-date information on the impact of these recent experimentation capabilities – the ability to observe directly how plasticity and fracture events interact with microstructures at the nanoscale – and how it could affect and enable novel and extreme materials and nanocomposite design.

JMR Call for Papers

Focus issue: (Nano)-materials for Biomedical Applications
Submission deadline: November 1, 2018
This JMR Focus Issue is devoted to the latest advances in biomedical nanomaterials, including: (i) different fabrication approaches and applications, (ii) design and characterization of novel biomedical materials and devices as well as their structure-property relationships with biological responses, and (iii) novel (bio)-nanomaterials as potential candidates to integrate multifunctional devices targeting self-assembly materials.
