About Journal of Composites Science


The Journal of Composites Science is an online, open access journal. It focuses on advanced technology and development of composite materials and provides an interdisciplinary forum for publication of research papers, short communications and review papers which advance the properties, testing methods and applications of composites. Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical results in as much detail as possible so that the results can be reproduced. Therefore, there is no restriction on the length of the papers.


The journal scope includes the following areas, although research in related fields may also be considered.

  • Fiber reinforced composites;
  • Novel composites;
  • Nanocomposites;
  • Biomedical composites;
  • Energy composites;
  • Modeling, non-destructive evaluation;
  • Processing and manufacturing, properties and performance;
  • Repair, testing, nano technology;
  • Physics, chemistry and mechanics characterization of composites
