3DMS Topical Collections Now Available

Three TMS journals—Integrating Materials and Manufacturing Innovation (IMMI), JOM, and Metallurgical and Materials Transactions A (MMTA)—have published coordinated topical collections on 3D materials science (3DMS). The articles appear in the January 2020 issues of JOM and MMTA and were published throughout 2019 in IMMI.

George Spanos, director of New Initiatives, Science, and Engineering at TMS, explained the impact of this timely collection. “A robust thematic group of 3DMS coordinated publications has not been released since the 2006–2008 timeframe (e.g., in JOM and Scripta Metallurgica in 2006, and in MRS Bulletin in 2008),” he said. “Concomitantly, as evidenced by the four prior iterations of the biannual TMS International Congress on 3D Materials Science, as well as the program being developed for its fifth iteration, 3DMS 2020, there have been incredible strides made in this field since 2012, when the first 3DMS congress was held.”

TMS members can access these articles by logging in to the Journals section of the TMS website and then clicking on the “Read This Journal” link for the appropriate publication. From there, take the following steps:
  • For IMMI and MMTA, you will then click the Browse Volumes & Issues button, select the Topical Collections tab, and choose “3D Materials Science 2019” from the list.
  • For JOM, from the January 2020 issue page, scroll down and select articles labeled as part of the 3D Materials Science topic.
Special thanks are given to the guest editors of these topical collections. For IMMI: Alexis Lewis, National Science Foundation, and Henry Proudhon, Mines Paristech Centre des Matériaux. For JOM: Matthew Miller, Cornell University, and Philip Withers, The Henry Royce Institute for Advanced Materials. And for MMTA: David Rowenhorst, Naval Research Laboratory, and Henning Poulsen, Technical University of Denmark.

Morita Named Journal Co-Editor-in-Chief

Kazuki Morita, professor at The University of Tokyo, has joined Bart Blanpain, KU Leuven, and Uday Pal, Boston University, as co-editor-in-chief of the Journal of Sustainable Metallurgy. He replaces founding co-editor-in-chief Shin-ya Kitamura, Tohoku University, who retired at the end of 2019 after five years of service.

Morita’s research interests include high temperature physical chemistry, extractive metallurgy, chemical equilibrium, isotope exchange, and environmental engineering. His Materials Production and Recycling Engineering Lab is working toward establishing an environmentally friendly society by developing their production and recycling processes of elementary materials, such as steel and silicon, together with by-product treatment.

In addition to his faculty position at The University of Tokyo, Morita previously served as the head of the Department of Materials Engineering and as both the deputy director and director of the International Research Center for Sustainable Materials – Institute of Industrial Science. Morita is also currently a guest professor at Kinming University of Science and Technology and Sichuan University, and a visiting professor at Akita University. He has been a TMS member for more than 20 years.

The Journal of Sustainable Metallurgy is a quarterly publication dedicated to presenting metallurgical processes and related research aimed at improving the sustainability of metal-producing industries, with an emphasis on materials recovery, reuse, and recycling. The journal has been accepted for indexing and will receive its first Impact Factor in 2020. This publication is one of six TMS journals that members can read free of charge. TMS members can log into the Journals web page to begin reading and to learn how to submit a paper for an upcoming issue.
