Prospective authors should review and follow the submission instructions for each respective journal. All manuscripts, including those from symposia, will be judged by qualified reviewers according to established criteria for technical merit.

AUTHOR AND SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Current IssueMetallurgical and Materials Transactions A
Manuscripts should represent completed original work embodying the results of extensive field, plant, laboratory, or theoretical investigation, or new interpretations of existing problems. Materials must be considered to have significant permanent value. In addition to technical acceptability, material should be presented clearly and concisely. Of particular importance is the description of the experimental procedures involved in the experiment. It is important that critical information about experimental conditions be included so that the work can be verified by other scientists.

Current IssueMetallurgical and Materials Transactions B
Emphasizes the theoretical and engineering aspects of the processing of metals and other materials, including studies of electro- and physical chemistry, mass transport, modeling, and related computer applications. Concerns the main topics of composite materials, hydrometallurgy, pyrometallurgy, electrometallurgy, transport phenomena, process control, physical chemistry, solidification, mechanical working, solid state reactions, materials processing, welding and joining, surface treatment, mathematical modeling, environment, biomaterials, and light metals.

Current IssueMetallurgical and Materials Transactions E
Manuscripts should focus on the science of materials applied to or being investigated to address unique aspects of current and emerging energy technologies. Topics include but are not limited to battery, fuel cell, hydrogen storage, nuclear, solar cell, thermal conversion, thermochemistry, and other energy systems that may emerge. Coverage may include a variety of areas of materials research, including larger materials issues with applications to energy.

EDITORIAL REVIEW

All manuscripts, including those from symposia, will be judged by qualified reviewers according to established criteria for technical merit. The review procedure begins in the editorial office as a Key Reader is assigned by the Principal Editor or Editor. The Key Reader chooses one or two reviewers for the manuscript and submits his recommendation, based on his own and the reviewers’ judgments, to the editorial office.

The Principal Editor or Editor then makes a final decision on the paper. Submission of a manuscript is representation that it has neither been copyrighted, published, nor submitted for publication elsewhere. Prior publication is a basis for rejection.

The editorial offices and staff for the journal are located primarily in the Materials Science and Engineering Department of Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. For more information about Metallurgical and Materials Transactions, contact the editorial office at:
