Special issues of journals for the 8th ICMAP & the 9th ISFM

Materials Express (MEX) is an international multidisciplinary peer-reviewed journal reporting research on the synthesis, characterization, properties, and applications of a very wide range of materials from physical sciences to engineering to life sciences. In particular, the journal aims to report advanced materials with interesting electronic, magnetic, optical, mechanical and catalytic properties. A broad spectrum of the research topics on materials are covered.
