ASTM Launches Two New Journals

ASTM International is seeking submissions for its two new journals, Advances in Civil Engineering Materials (ACEM) and Materials Performance and Characterization (MPC). Both journals are online only, and peer reviewed. ASTM is seeking original technical papers, review papers and technical notes.

ACEM covers all aspects of material processing, structure, properties and performance of materials in civil engineering systems, such as concrete, asphalt, steel, polymers and polymeric composites, and wood for use in pavements, bridges and buildings.

MPC features articles on the theoretical and practical aspects of the structure, processing, properties and performance of materials used in mechanical, transportation, aerospace, energy systems and medical devices. These materials include metals and alloys, glass and ceramics, polymers, composite materials, textiles and nanomaterials.
