Glass Science open for submissions

Today marks the launch of Glass Science, a new specialty section in the community-run open-access journal Frontiers in Materials.

The new section Glass Science is led by Specialty Chief Editor Dr John Mauro, Corning Inc, US.

Glass Science provides a high-visibility, interactive forum for the publication and discussion of the latest, most important advances in fundamental and applied glass science, including glass physics, chemistry and engineering technology as well as innovative new applications for glassy materials. Its mission is to accelerate the ongoing evolution of glass science from a purely empirical science to one built upon a rigorous, interdisciplinary approach, with the ultimate goal of achieving atomic-level understanding and design of novel glassy materials.

Part of the “Frontiers in” journal series, Frontiers in Materials offers:

– Interactive and collaborative review to ensure quality, rigor, and fairness

– World-class editorial boards for all specialty sections

– Open Access for maximum visibility and discoverability
