Scientific article/publication

Materials Science and Technology will be publishing a special issue featuring papers presented at Copper Alloys 2018.

Materials Science and Technology is an international forum for the publication of refereed contributions covering fundamental and technological aspects of materials science and engineering. The journal particularly welcomes papers which are innovative in their approach, and authors are asked to state the novelty of their research on submission . All articles published in the journal are subject to full peer-review. Full journal information is at www.tandfonline.com/ymst  

Participants are invited to submit their manuscripts to the journal at www.edmgr.com/mst, and to select ‘Copper Alloys’ as the special issue when prompted.

The deadline for submitting to the special issue is 28th February 2018. (Tentative publication date of the special issue is June 2018.)
