Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

I am delighted to present this special issue of "Feature Papers" published in the newly launched Metals journal. The metals journal is aimed at providing current and advanced research focused on the fundamental aspects of metals processing-properties-microstructure-performance relationships. Articles covering significant research developments by either, computer simulation, laboratory testing, solidification modeling and processing methods, as well as on the fundamentals of phase transformations, mechanical behavior and microstructural development in metallic materials are encouraged to be submitted to this journal. In addition, metal properties to be considered for publication in this journal includes but it is not limited to thermal, magnetic, mechanical and environmental, among others. The spectrum of metallic materials is open to all metals particularly to those with novel properties/applications such as Al-alloys, ultra high strength steels, nano-structured metallic alloys, etc.

It is expected that through this journal, any gap that might exist between metallic materials and other advanced materials ceramic or polymeric be effectively reduced or eliminated. The metals journal has implemented a rigorous peer review process which includes rapid dissemination of original research.
