Introducing the new Materials Advances HOT collection

With 2020 now well underway we have reached the six month anniversary of the inaugural issue of Materials Advances.  In celebration, we are proud to introduce the new Materials Advances HOT article collection.  This collection contains articles which were highlighted by our editors as high-quality and which should be highlighted to experts in the field.  Articles are added to the collection on a rolling basis, and you can keep up to date with what has been added here.

Materials Advances is the newest member of the materials portfolio of journals published by the Royal Society of Chemistry. It is an international gold open access journal, publishing good quality research across the breadth of materials science. The journal is also free-to-publish in for the first two years, meaning it will have a large, global audience, and be fully accessible to all.

Sign up now to get updates on all articles as they are published on Twitter, Facebook, and our e-alerts.
