Interest in harnessing the possibilities of additive manufacturing of metals has skyrocketed
in recent years. But, can true, widespread application of this emerging technology live up to the buzz? Experts from throughout the field
offer their front-line perspectives on the topic in “Layers of Complexity: Making
the Promises Possible for Additive Manufacturing
of Metals,” the cover feature in this month’s JOM. Another “don’t miss” article this month
is an overview of upcoming changes to the
metallurgical and materials version of the Professional Engineering examination. Also, be sure to read about the TMS Foundation’s
first-ever Annual Appeal, as well as this month’s Meet a Member feature
on Joalet Steenkamp and her exotic plant collection.
Several features in this month’s JOM: The Magazine are reporting news across the breadth of TMS’s journal library. For a quick look behind
the 2013 Impact Factors numbers recently released for TMS journals, read "TMS Journals Score Impact Factor Increases" in the October New
and Noteworthy at TMS section. Meet JOM’s new advisors for 2015 and learn about the content they are looking for as they develop their topics
in this month’s TMS Volunteer Face Time feature. And, find out what F. (Shadi) Shahedipour-Sandvik is planning as the new Journal of Electronic
Materials Editor-in-Chief. For a change of pace, take a look at this month’s Meet a Member to see how Lauren Garrison, Oak Ridge National
Laboratory, makes the connection between dance and engineering.
