Materials Horizons Emerging Investigator series

Discover our 2024 Emerging Investigators

Since the launch of Materials Horizons, the journal has had a clear vision to publish exceptionally high-quality work whilst acting as a resource to researchers working at all career levels. We continue to be impressed by the quality of the research published and at the same time are looking for new ways of recognising and promoting the outstanding authors behind articles published in the journal.

The Materials Horizons Emerging Investigators Series showcases early-career researchers who have published exceptional work in the journal. The initiative started in 2020 and so far we have featured over 40 up-and-coming researchers in the series. For each issue of the journal, the Editorial Office and Editorial Board select an Emerging Investigator from a pool of eligible authors, highlighting the researcher and their recently published work in an interview Editorial.
