August JOM Previews MS&T2015
This month’s JOM: The Magazine offers a high-level overview of what to expect for Materials Science & Technology 2015 (MS&T2015), taking place October 4–8, in Columbus, Ohio. Other highlights in this issue include a young professional profile on Ben Morrow, staff scientist at Los Alamos National Laboratory, an update on TMS Foundation activities, and this month’s Meet a Member feature, “Michelle Dickinson Makes Science Stereotypes Go Up in Smoke.”

JOM Reveals the Top Ten Greatest Works of Materials Fiction
Looking for a summer reading list of substance? Try the Top Ten Greatest Works of Materials Fiction, published by TMS in the July 2015 issue of JOM. The list is a result of a reader nomination and voting process conducted by JOM to select great fictional works that also celebrate the impact of minerals, metals, and materials science and engineering on the world. Read the JOM article, “A List Beyond Words”, to find out what made the final cut. Reviews contributed by JOM readers provide details on each work, as well as insights into its materials connection.

TMS Journal Content Makes an Impact
Research published in TMS journals leaves an impression on the wider materials science and engineering communities, as evidenced by the steadily rising Impact Factors (IF) of the society’s long-established journals. The 2014 Impact Factors, released by the Thomson Reuters ISI Web of Knowledge citation measurement index this month, represents the average number of citations to articles that were published during the preceding two years. It is based on the number of citations of a journal’s materials divided by the number of citable materials published by that journal.
