Integrating Materials and Manufacturing Innovation - a SpringerOpen journal 2012-06-18


Use the link to access more information about the new open access, peer-reviewed journal published by SpringerOpen. “Integrating Materials and Manufacturing Innovation (IMMI)” is affiliated with the Minerals, Metals, and Materials Society (TMS). TMS is “the professional organization encompassing the entire range of materials science and engineering, from minerals processing and primary metals production to basic research and the advanced applications of materials. Included among its professional and student members are metallurgical and materials engineers, scientists, researchers, educators, and administrators from more than 70 countries on six continents. For more information, visit” The aims and scope of IMMI are stated as follows: “Integrating Materials and Manufacturing Innovationis committed to building a seamless and dynamic engineering design framework supporting the accelerated discovery, development, and application of materials, materials systems, and materials processes for practical use in manufacturing. Combining the rigor of scholarly publication with enhanced digital content, the journal covers innovations from the discovery of materials to their deployment... IMMI provides an Open Access platform for the presentation of novel efforts seeking to build an integrated engineering framework to solve a pervasive or recurring need in materials and manufacturing. It also provides a venue for presenting innovative approaches to overcome key technical challenges in integrating experiment, models, and data. These challenges include description and representation of complex structure, data curation, model verification and validation, and seamlessly linking models and data. The journal will publish: [1] Detailed case studies of endeavors to integrate experiment and modeling to solve an enduring engineering problem in materials and manufacturing [2] Introduction of novel experimental or computational techniques or data sets that enable bridging length or time domains [3] Best practices in verification and validation of models, data curation, and standards and protocols for model integration and exchange of data [4] In-depth descriptions of databases and database tools in the area of materials and manufacturing...”
