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 of the National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS). The journal is international; it is managed by NIMS, which was joined in 2014 by the Swiss Federal Laboratories for Materials Science and Technology (Empa).[1]


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.


Since March 2014, STAM articles are published under a Creative Commons CC-BY license, while the previous content is released within a more restrictive, non-commercial CC-BY-NC-SA platform.[2]


STAM is indexed by major databases including the Astrophysics Data System, Chemical Abstracts Service, Inspec, PubMed, Science Citation Index, Scopus and Web of Science.


According to the Journal Citation Reports, STAM has a 2014 impact factor of 3.513 and ranks 42nd out of 257 journals in the category "Materials Science, Multidisciplinary".[3]

STAM has published articles and editorials by the Nobel Laureates Ei-ichi Negishi,[4] Heinrich Rohrer[5] and Dan Shechtman.[6] Its Advisory Board includes James Gimzewski, Michael Grätzel, Hideo Hosono, Colin Humphreys, Yoshinori Tokura and Yoshihisa Yamamoto.[7]
