Next Materials is a peer-reviewed, open access journal publishing research of relevance to the materials community.

The journal is part of the Next family, a new suite of multidisciplinary open access journals from Elsevier spanning all branches of science. Managed by our dedicated team of full-time inhouse Editors, Next Materials offers authors speed, consistency, innovation, flexibility and ease of submission, while providing readers in the field with seamless access.

Next Materials aims to provide an essential resource for researchers in both academia and industry, providing a platform of inspiration for the next generation of materials scientists and covering the most innovative, cutting edge and influential work of broad interest to the materials science community.

Next Materials brings together findings from nano to macro, fundamentals to application and interdisciplinary/multidisciplinary material relevant research i.e. we welcome transformative research, related to fundamental structure, synthesis and assembly, properties and performance of emerging material systems, as well as novel characterization methods to unite every key aspect of materials science, technology and engineering. The materials of focus can be any state, any scale, any composition with scientific or technological interest, theoretical or otherwise.

Next Materials provides authors with rigorous peer review ensuring articles adhere to a high technical standard, with rapid decisions and a highly visible platform for scientists to share their research.

Our Editors welcome submissions on materials explorations including but not limited to:
