POWDER METALLURGY PROGRESS – international journal of powder technology and powder-derived materials.
POWDER METALLURGY PROGRESS is an international peer-reviewed open-access materials science journal with a more than 20 years long publishing history. Since the establishment in 2001, PMP published a wide variety of quality works, focused mainly on powder metallurgy of metals, the evolution of the technology itself, preparation, properties, and applications of particular materials.
In 2021 after the celebration of the 20th anniversary of the journal, it underwent changes and transformations focused mainly on the publishing interests and scope. Now it is extended to broadly all fields of powder-derived materials and technologies.
Works from the fields of powder metallurgy, metals, alloys, ceramics, and composites, basic and applied research of materials science related to mechanical and functional properties, manufacturing, and characterization are always welcomed.
Actual Scope of the journal:
- materials research such as materials physics, materials chemistry, materials engineering, traditional and advanced powder metallurgy, materials processing;
- wide range of metal, ceramic and composite materials including metal matrix, ceramic matrix, polymer matrix composites, and hybrid organic-inorganic-metal-ceramic material systems, structural materials, functional materials, biomaterials, porous materials, magnetic electric and multifunctional materials such as magnetic composites, magnetoelectric, magnetocaloric, ferroelectric, piezoelectric, thermoelectric, magneto-optic, magnetostrictive, or high-temperature materials;
- advanced as well as traditional production technology and processing, additive manufacturing, 3D printing, Press and Sinter, HIP, MIM, PIM, Spark Plasma Sintering, Hot Pressing, Microwave Sintering, Plasma Treatment, Slip Casting, Rapid Heating, Ultrafast Sintering, new progressive compaction and processing methods;
- influence of material processing parameters on their microstructure formation and development and structural relations of physical, mechanical, and functional properties of materials focusing but not limited on powder materials;
- special technological processes of PM material with individual-particular-special physical-chemical properties;
- environmental issues of production and application of PM materials;
- industrial processes, management, and quality, (creation of normative) standard method activity, economical analysis, conception (philosophy) and prediction in PM and progressive material processing field;
- production of technological equipment for powder and advanced materials technology.
