Market Overview

Research and Markets: Materials Research Innovations


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Materials Research Innovations" subscription to their offering.

6 issues per year (Online Only). Materials Research Innovations publishes original research papers (guide length 3500 words but open to discussion), critical reviews, rapid communications and technical notes.

Materials Research Innovations covers all areas of materials research including; synthesis, processing, and properties of nanoscale to microscale to bulk materials of ceramics, metals, semiconductors, or as ceramic-ceramic, metal-ceramic, metal-metal, metal-semiconductor, and inorganic-organic composite materials in order to impart special properties to bulk materials and coatings and for innovative applications in technology. Physical and chemical synthesis and processing of fine powders, single crystals and composites. The Editors (many of them involved in the formation of the materials research field) attempt to balance the more permanent themes of science and engineering with such areas of research activity.

The Editors have singled out certain research areas in which Materials Research Innovations will attempt to become a journal of choice over the near future for scientists making genuine innovations:

- The discovery or development of any really new material (in structure, composition or properties). Occasional journal issues may focus on a particularly hot, timely topic such as on ZnO in 2007.

- The discovery of any new process for the manipulation or processing of solid matter.

- Science relevant to giga- (meta-) technologies. (While the nano' theme has dominated fashionable science, we believe that the important contribution of such science will be that which is connected to the real materials world where large volumes or values are involved, from steel and cement, to BaTiO3 and silicon.)

- State of the art innovations in materials, which are keys to, or drive, biological applications.

- Nanostructured, nanocomposite and bul materials, characterisation, surfaces and interfaces

- Porous and catalytic materials

- Novel ion exchange materials

- Metallic and oxide superlattices

- Phenomena in nano confining systems

- Polymeric nanophase materials, nanocomposites and composites

- Biological systems at the nanoscale

- Novel phenomena of nanoscale materials

- Electrical, optical, thermoelectric, photovoltaic, magnetic, mechanical, thermal, sensing and catalytic properties

- Applications of nanophases, nanocomposite and composite materials

- Devices and systems including nanoscale

- Offers of special reviews (typically 5000 to 10 000 words) that link important current active areas to their roots in basic science are welcome
