Scripta Materialia, the companion journal to Acta Materialia, is an International journal for the Science of Materials. Its purpose is to provide a medium for the rapid publication of cutting edge short papers which advance the understanding of structural, nanostructured, and functional materials, both crystalline and amorphous, across all materials classes. Emphasis is placed on those aspects of the science of materials that address: (i) the relationship between the microstructure of materials and their properties, including mechanical (from both the defect and continuum viewpoints), electrical, magnetic and chemical properties; (ii) the relationship between the microstructure of materials and the thermodynamics, kinetics and mechanisms of processes occurring within solids; (iii) the synthesis and processing of materials, with emphasis on microstructural mechanisms and control. (iv) advances in the characterization of the microstructure and properties of materials. Scripta Materialia encourages the submission of letters of opinion, and of comments, particularly concerning work published in Acta Materialia and Scripta Materialia. The journal also publishes Viewpoint Sets, which are a series of short articles focused on topics of current interest within the scope of the journal and co-ordinated by invited editors.
