IJMSI provides multidisciplinary approaches, either empirical or theoretical, to the study of materials and structural integrity. Its goals are to promote cross-fertilization of ideas between all the scientific disciplines having to deal with their own materials and structural integrity, including engineering, bionics, physics and chemistry. The journal encourages submission of new fundamental and interdisciplinary contributions on materials and structural integrity.
Topics covered include
- Advanced materials for structural integrity
- Advanced design theory and CAD for structural integrity
- Advanced manufacturing technology and CAM for structural integrity
- Physical mechanisms for structural integrity
- Bionic mechanisms for structural integrity
- Chemical mechanisms for structural integrity
- Vibration, impact and various environment protection techniques for structural integrity
- Experiments about structural systems or materials
- Electronic packaging technology and materials
- MEMS and nanotechnology
The objectives of IJMSI are to establish an effective channel of communication between academic, engineering and research institutions. It also aims to promote and coordinate developments in the field of materials and structural integrity. The international dimension is emphasised in order to overcome cultural and national barriers and to meet the needs of accelerating scientific and technological change and changes in the global economy.
IJMSI provides a vehicle to help professionals, academics, researchers and policy makers, working in the field of scientific research, engineering and technology, to disseminate information and to learn from each other's work
IJMSI publishes original papers, review papers, technical reports, case studies, conference reports, management reports, book reviews, notes, commentaries, and news. Special Issues devoted to important topics in materials and structural integrity will occasionally be published
