BACKGROUND ON JEM
EDITORIAL PLANS &
CALLS FOR PAPERS
The Journal of Electronic Materials (JEM) is a monthly archival publication that reports on the science and technology of electronic materials, while examining new applications for semiconductors, magnetic alloys, insulators, and optical and display materials.
Published by by the Electronic, Magnetics & Photonic Materials Division of The Minerals, Metals & Materials Society (TMS) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) for the past 35 years, JEM strives to publish papers of interest to both non-specialists and specialists in the electronic materials field.
Articles that appear in JEM are reviewed, selected, and edited by peers in the field who serve as voluntary members of the editorial board or the board of associate editors or as section editors. Generally, they are members of the Electronic Materials Committee of TMS or are members of IEEE. In addition, a professional copy editor and graphic artist assemble the approved papers for publication. The table features the names of some of the people who are involved with JEM.
The journal contains peer-reviewed technical papers detailing critical new developments in the electronics field, as well as invited and contributed review papers on topics of current interest, designed to enable those in the field of electronics to keep abreast of activities in areas vital to their own technical interests.
Some of the editorial topics covered so far in 2006 have included special issues on group III nitrides, Sic, and ZnO; the 2005 U.S. workshop on the physics and chemistry of II-VI materials; and phase stability, phase transformations, and reactive phase formation in electronic materials. Regular issue topics have included new applications for semiconductors, magnetic alloys, insulators, and optical and display materials.
There are four types of papers in JEM:
A schedule of upcoming issue topics is available.
JEM also publishes the entire program of abstracts, as well as selected papers, from the annual electronic materials conference, a TMS specialty meeting. As the TMS Electronic, Magnetic & Photonic Materials Division views the journal as its primary means of publication, symposia proceedings and special issues covering significant advances or critical topics are frequently published as a supplement to the "regular" issue archival papers.
These conference proceedings issues are available for individual purchase, as are all other in-stock back issues of the journal, for as little as $25 each.
Written for practicing members of the international electronic materials field, JEM has approximately 1,500 subscribers. The subscribers include TMS members, IEEE subscribers, and individuals who are affiliated with neither society. The majority of subscribers are professional materials scientists and engineers within the field from industry, government, or academia.
Only manuscripts submitted through the on-line system at http://jems.edmgr.com will be considered for publication. Anyone wishing to publish in JEM should adhere to the instructions set forth in the Author Guidelines. The guidelines detail communication contacts and manuscript preparation.
All papers for JEM are reviewed by two qualified referees to determine the suitability of the paper for publication. The editor makes the decision to accept or reject a paper based on the referees' comments. An author may be asked to revise his or her manuscript to address concerns raised by one of the reviewers or the editor. The length of time that passes between the submission of a paper and its publication may vary based on the paper topic and other factors (e.g., amount of revisions needed or the length of time paper is reviewed by appropriate editor). Authors are also given the opportunity to review the typeset version of their accepted manuscript before it is published. This review is solely for detecting typographical errors.
Like many other scientific and technical journals, JEM depends on author page charges to offset publication costs. Therefore, a charge of $110 per printed page is levied on authors for all papers published. In exchange, 100 reprints of the paper are supplied to the author without additional charge.
A variety of options for both electronic and hard-copy subscriptions are available. Entire issues are also available for individual purchase, as are the individual articles (in portable document format).
