The Portuguese Society of Materials (SPM) is Now an Affiliated Society Member of Materials and Metals
In December 2018, the Portuguese Society of Materials (SPM) chose to become affiliated to Materials and Metals. As part of this collaboration, all members of the society enjoy a discount on the article processing charges (APC) when submitting articles to Materials and Metals.
The Portuguese Society of Materials (SPM) is an association of technical and scientific nature, nonprofit, endowed with legal personality and is governed by its own statutes and general regulations. SPM wants to disseminate around the world what is best made in Portugal regarding Science and Technology of Materials. They work to create a network of contacts worldwide to provide exchange of experiences and knowledge.
SPM works to help introducing new concepts for the use of Materials which are economically attractive and sustainable for future generations. They believe that knowledge is the key.
They work to encourage the active participation of all members of the community of Materials, and strengthen the link between universities, research centers, business and industry, and thereby add value and open new opportunities.
SPM is a professional organization whose functions are highly relevant to the scope of Materials and Metals. We look forward to collaborating with SPM and publishing state-of-the-art research from its members in this field.
