Aims & Scope
The OAJRC Material Science (OAJRCMS) is a multi-disciplinary, rapid-publication journal published by the Open Access Journal Research Center (OAJRC) focused on all fields of material science. OAJRCMS welcomes papers that employ theory and/or simulation (or numerical methods) that substantially advance our understanding of the structure and properties of all kinds of materials. The journal covers all aspects of materials theory and application, spanning chemistry, physics, engineering, and biology, and we welcome high quality articles on novel electronic, medicine, mechanical, optical, energy devices, and the environment and the impact on society. The journal welcomes high quality original research articles, systematic reviews, short communications, editorials and commentaries. Detailed theoretical and experimental results should be included.
Main research areas include (but are not limited to):
• Material theory
• Materials for energy
• Two dimensional materials
• Functional materials
• Materials synthesis
• Composite Materials
• Wearable electronics
• Thin Film and Coatings
• Materials Chemistry
• 3D printing/Additive manufacturing
• Ramifications on society
• Health and environmental impact
• Research commercialization

Submit Manuscript as an email attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org. Papers also can be submitted through the online submission system. Manuscripts should be submitted by one of the authors of the manuscript. Submissions by anyone other than one of authors will not be accepted.
You could download the MS Word Template.
Hill Publishing Group can exceptionally accept shorter or longer manuscripts, provided that the scientific content is of high value. No additional page charges are required if a manuscript is substantially longer than 17 pages. All submitted manuscripts must include the following items:
Title - Make sure that the title is specific and concise. Titles should be presented in title case - all words except the first word should be in lower case letters.
List of authors, their affiliations and email addresses - Provide the full names and affiliations of all the authors. Affiliations should include department, university or organization, city, and country. One of the authors should be designated as the corresponding author, and their email address needs to be included.
Abstract - The abstract should briefly introduce the manuscript, not exceeding 400 words. No citations should be included in the abstract.
Keywords - At least 3 keywords or phrases should be included and must be separated by commas to distinguish them.
Introduction - The introduction section should provide a context for your manuscript. When preparing the introduction, please bear in mind that some readers will not be experts in your field of research.
Main body - the main body part should include the main proposed ideas, results and discussions.
Conclusions - A conclusion is where you summarize the paper's findings and generalize their importance, discuss ambiguous data, and recommend further research. An effective conclusion should provide closure for a paper, leaving the reader feeling satisfied that the concepts have been fully explained.
Acknowledgments - You as the author are free to decide whether to include acknowledgments or not. Usually, the acknowledgments section includes the names of people who in some way contributed to the work, but do not fit the criteria to be listed as the authors. This section of your manuscript can also include information about funding sources.
References - Hill Publishing Group uses the numbered citation method for reference formatting.
All references should be formatted in APA style in the text and listed in the REFERENCES section, as shown below:
