About ES Materials & Manufacturing

Aims and Scope

ES Materials & Manufacturing is a multidisciplinary peer-reviewed international research journal incorporating research activities in all experimental and theoretical aspects of materials and manufacturing. The research topics include the most exciting and significant advances in all areas of materials research and their related manufacturing process. Both fundamental and applied studies are encouraged, e.g., functional materials for energy-, optics-, and electronics-related applications, biomaterials, structural materials, advanced manufacturing, chemical/physical processes during materials synthesis or manufacturing, and computational materials science. This journal specializes in cutting-edge research with the mission of providing sustained value in the evolving world of academic and industrial fields.



ES Materials & Manufacturing is led by Editor-in-Chief, Professor Na (Luna Lu) at Purdue University, USA.  An international Editorial Committee of Associate Editors recommend decisions to the Editor-in-Chief and a broad subject- and geographically-based Advisory Editorial Board, composed of leading Materials & Manufacturing researchers from around the world, supports the management of the journal.
