IOM3 and Maney to Publish New Energy Materials Journal

ENERGY MATERIALS: Materials Science & Engineering for Energy Systems is a new journal to be published jointly by the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining and Maney Publishing in 2006.

Energy Materials will address materials needs in future energy generation, transmission, utilisation, conservation and storage. Materials developments are critical to solutions in all these areas: to innovation in design; to extending lifetime and maintenance intervals; and to operation in more demanding environments. The journal will cover:

  • thermal and gas turbines
  • renewable power (wind, wave, tidal, hydro, solar and geothermal)
  • fuel cells (low and high temperature)
  • materials issues relevant to biomass and biotechnology
  • nuclear power generation (fission and fusion)
  • the transmission and storage of the energy produced
  • materials aspects of energy conservation.
As well as publishing high quality peer-reviewed research, Energy Materials will promote discussion of issues common to all sectors, through commissioned reviews and commentaries. There will be coverage of energy economics and policy, and broader social issues, since the political and legislative context influence research and investment decisions. With the important exceptions of hydrogen generation and storage, which will form an integral part of any future hydrogen economy, and materials aspects of biomass/biotechnology, it is not the intention of the journal to consider the extraction, refining/processing, and transport of fuels prior to their use for energy generation.

The Editors welcome the submission of original research papers, reviews or commentaries on topics of broad interest. Contributions to the journal should be submitted via the journal's Online Submission and Refereeing System at
