   Manuscript review process & notification

In order to maintain the high standard and reputation of the Materials Science Forum periodical, as well as the integrity of the publisher, the Program Committee will seek assistance from the Trans Tech Publications to use its sophisticated “plagiarism check tool” to scan the MS for duplication or any possible duplications and plagiarism. This tool was very helpful to the Program Committee in past and in the large majority of cases we did not have any problems with duplications of information presented for publication. However, if we find that some parts of your MS were already published, we will require modifications, and in that case either the TTP or Prof M. Ionescu (Program Chair) will contact the presenting author via email before April 4, 2018.


If your manuscript requires minor changes, such as corrections of typos, the Program Committee will address them in your manuscript before including it in the MSF.  However, if other major changes are required, the Program Committee will contact you via email by April 4, 2018. If you do not receive email from us by April 4, 2018, this will mean that your manuscript is accepted for inclusion in the periodical/proceedings without any changes.
