JOM Publishes Update on Highly Cited Paper
JOM published its most cited paper in its publishing history and one of the most highly cited papers in materials science overall exactly ten years ago. The April JOM features an update of this seminal article by the original authors: “Producing Bulk Ultrafine-Grained Materials by Severe Plastic Deformation: Ten Years Later" by Ruslan Z. Valiev, Yuri Estrin, Zenji Horita, Michael J. Zehetbauer, and Terence G. Langdon. According to the authors, the current article “is designed to provide . . . an update to this fast-moving and challenging field and to give a description of new developments in the production and properties of UFG materials.” To mark the occasion, the new article, as well as the original paper, “Producing Bulk Ultrafine-Grained Materials by Severe Plastic Deformation,” have both been made open access.

Career Development Themes Reflected in March JOM
Aspects of career development and advancement are touched on in several JOM: The Magazine features this month. For insights into how career choices might impact long-term earning potential, read the article on the 2015 Engineering Salary Survey, recently released by the Engineering Workforce Commission (EWC) of the American Association of Engineering Societies. Then, turn to the feature, “Meet the 2016 Young Leader Awardees” to find out how young professional programs supported by the TMS Foundation give early career TMS members a significant boost in their growth as leaders within the society and their profession. Finally, read the first presidential perspective article penned by Stanley M. Howard, 2016 TMS President, which presents his priorities for TMS’s professional development and international outreach efforts, among other goals.
