Prospective authors should review and follow the submission instructions for each respective journal, as they have varied publication guidelines. All manuscripts, including symposia, will be judged by qualified reviewers according to established criteria for technical merit.
AUTHOR AND SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
Metallurgical 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 very important that critical information about experimental conditions be included so that the work can be verified by other scientists.

Metallurgical 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 & joining; surface treatment; mathematical modeling; environment; biomaterials; and light metals.
[AUTHOR'S GUIDE] [SUBMIT PAPER]
All manuscripts, including 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 Editor or Associate 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 Editor or Associate 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. Appearance in a conference proceedings or similar special presentation with limited distribution is not necessarily prior publication. In such cases, the article should be so referenced.
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:
