IJASMM fosters works on the fundamentals of science/engineering of additive and subtractive manufacturing processes/techniques and aspects such as heat transfer, mass transfer, fluid flow, microstructure and phase evolution and development of physical/mechanical/chemical/functional properties. Experimental and computational approaches at levels from nano- , micro- , meso-scale manufacturing for a range of processing techniques (photonic/mechanical/chemical/hybrid) and materials (metals/ceramics/organic/polymers/composites/biomaterials) are of interest. The principles and applications of designing/fabrication of parts for real-world problems/applications are also considered.


 Topics covered include

  • Conventional/traditional, hybrid, novel, and advanced additive and subtractive manufacturing processes/techniques at multiple scales (nano, micro and meso)
  • Design and modelling/simulation of manufacturing processes/techniques
  • Design and modelling/simulation of physical processes at multiple scales
  • Novel/advanced, multiple/hybrid, composite and monolithic materials (metallic, ceramic, polymer and biomaterials)
  • Characterisation/performance of materials for microstructures, physical (mechanical, electrical, and chemical) and [multi]functional (biological, optical, surface) properties
  • Applications of additive and subtractive manufacturing processes/techniques
  • Process optimisation, quality, control, automation, artificial intelligence
  • Solution methodologies in integrated design/manufacturing
  • Instrumentation and measurement
  • Thermodynamics, heat and mass transfer, fluid dynamics
  • Precision engineering, inspection, measurement, metrology and computer-integrated manufacturing systems

More on this journal...

IJASMM, dedicated to the very new additive manufacturing (AM) and age-old subtractive manufacturing (SM), is a complimentary platform for discussion/communication on the evolution of the next generation manufacturing. The overall objective and mission of IJASMM is to provide a unified platform for dissemination of basic and applied knowledge about both additive and subtractive manufacturing. The specific mission of the journal is to give scientists, researchers, teachers, students and practitioners the tools and information they need to build successful careers and also to be an impetus to advancements in next-generation manufacturing. The general objective of the journal is to become a leading source of basic and applied knowledge in the field of advanced manufacturing by providing high-quality scientific, engineering and technological information.


IJASMM provides a platform for scientists/researchers, engineers, academicians, students and practitioners to share their ideas, work and vision related to manufacturing in a very open and cordial environment. The journal also provides a venue to educate and widen the knowledge base of those already working in the field and introduces to the field those contemplating stepping into it.


IJASMM publishes original papers, short/rapid communications, technical reports, case studies and review papers. Special issues devoted to important topics are also occasionally published. Articles in the journal 1) are related to basic and applied science as well as being highly technologically and engineering oriented, 2) provide a platform for in-depth publications, short and rapid communications on new developments, review articles focusing on specific timely important subfields, and theme-based timely and scientifically/technologically important topics, and 3) maintain the interdisciplinary nature of the content of the journal for wider audience/participants (authors and readers).
