This international journal is dedicated to the rapid publication of high quality papers on the important subjects of wear and friction, together with papers on closely related aspects of lubrication, contact phenomena or surface characterization. The scope includes all aspects of physics, chemistry, materials science and mechanical engineering which relate directly to the subjects of wear and friction; papers may approach the subject from a fundamental or technological viewpoint. Thorough refereeing of all papers, in accordance with normal procedures for international journals in science and engineering, ensures that Wear is an international forum of high quality for multidisciplinary communications on topics which include: the fundamental understanding of wear and frictional phenomena, including nanometre and atomic scale aspects of tribology; interactions between chemical processes (e.g. corrosion) and wear, and chemical aspects of lubrication (e.g. boundary lubrication); design and materials selection for the control of wear and friction; tribology of natural biological and artificial implanted materials; contact phenomena in the context of friction and wear; new materials and their tribological behaviour; wear and friction in cutting and forming processes; lubricants and mechanisms of lubrication in the context of wear and friction control; topics in surface physics and chemistry related to wear and friction. Papers concerned with these fields may be submitted. Facilities also exist for the prompt publication of short Research Reports and Letters subject to editorial approval. This journal is now included in the new online alerting service - Structural Integrity Alert - which forms part of the Structural Integrity Network The International Conference on Wear of Materials (WOM) is a series of meetings held every 2 years, administratively managed and underwritten by Elsevier Science on behalf of WOM Incorporated. The conference scope is sure to be of interest to readers of both Wear and Tribology International. All interested researchers in wear, tribology and related fields are invited to submit a paper to the next WOM and/or attend as a delegate. A hardbound copy of the fully peer-reviewed Proceedings of WOM'99 is available. Authors interested in erosive and abrasive wear may be interested to know about the fully peer-reviewed hardbound Proceedings of ICEAW incorporating ELSI IX.
