Materials Research Express

Editorial board

The Editor-in-Chief of Materials Research Express provides leadership and management of the Editorial Boards and influences the strategy of the Journal, in co-operation with the Publisher.

The Editorial Boards consist of an Executive Editorial Board, focusing on advocacy and commissioning, and a non-executive Editorial Board, focusing on advocacy and peer review, with membership of both Editorial Boards comprising groups of prominent scientists in the Journal’s field. The role of the Editorial Boards is to act as ambassadors for the Journal and IOPP; to foster strong and loyal relationships between the Journal and the scientific community and to channel community feedback to IOPP.

Materials Research Express also has an advisory panel.
