Frontiers launches a new open-access journal: Frontiers in Materials

February 24, 2014

Frontiers - a community driven open-access publisher and research networking platform - is pleased to announce the launch of a new open-access journal: Frontiers in Materials.

Frontiers in Materials is the latest addition to the "Frontiers in" journal series and will cover a broad spectrum of basic and interdisciplinary research in nanotechnology, polymer research, biomaterials and translational material science and more. Frontiers in Materials will make use of the unique Frontiers platform for open-access publishing and research networking, which provides an equal opportunity to seek, share and create knowledge.

"The field of Materials Science is evolving, and everyone involved shares the same objective: to keep pace with the multiple challenges and opportunities we face," says Professor Lorenzo Pavesi, Chief Editor of the section Optics and Photonics. "With Frontiers in Materials, we hope to build a community of scientists interested in constructive and fair criticism, for it is the positive feedback on our work that drives the success of it all."

The mission of Frontiers is to place publishing back in the hands of working researchers and to promote an interactive, fair, and efficient review process of a range of article types. Articles are rigorously reviewed based on objective criteria in an average time of 84 days, published under the Creative Commons Attribution (CC-BY) license, and are freely available to an international audience.

The current specialty sections open for submissions to Frontiers in Materials include the following:Impact Article level metrics and post-publication review will be available on all articles, and the Frontiers Tiering System will showcase high impact research for a broader audience.

About Frontiers

Frontiers is a community driven open-access publisher and research networking platform. Launched and run by scientists since 2007, Frontiers empowers researchers to advance the way science is peer-reviewed, evaluated, published, communicated, and shared in the digital era. Frontiers drives innovations in peer-review, article level metrics, post publication review, democratic evaluation, research networking and a growing ecosystem of open-science tools.

Frontiers joined the Nature Publishing Group family in 2013. The "Frontiers in" journal series has published 16,000 peer-reviewed articles, which receive 6 million monthly views, and are supported by over 100,000 editors, reviewers and authors world-wide.
