Science and Technology of Advanced Materials is a bimonthly peer-reviewed scientific journal in materials science that was established in 2000. In 2008 it became an open access journal through the sponsorship by the National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS). The journal is international, with its editors and referees located all around the world. However, the management is performed by NIMS (Tsukuba, Japan). From 2008, the journal is published on-line and printed by the Institute of Physics. The printed volumes are distributed free of charge by NIMS and the Institute of Physics editorial staff. Prior to 2008, the journal was published by Elsevier.
The journal covers all aspects of materials science, including theoretical analysis, synthesis and processing, phase and structure analyses, characterization, properties, engineering, and applications. It covers advances in research on solids, liquids and colloids, with emphasis on the interdisciplinary nature of materials science and issues at the forefront of the field, such as nano-, bio- and ecomaterials.
