Aims & Scope


Open Journal of Metal (OJMetal) is an international peer-reviewed, open-access journal dedicated to the latest advancements in metals and related disciplines. The goal of this journal is to provide a platform for scientists and academicians all over the world to promote, share, and discuss various new issues and developments in different areas of metals and keep a record of state-of-the-art research.

All manuscripts must be prepared in English and are subject to a rigorous and fair peer-review process. Generally, accepted papers will appear online within 3 weeks followed by printed hard copy. The journal publishes original papers including but not limited to the following fields:


  • · Amorphous, Nanocrystalline and Ultrafine Grained Metals
  • · BioMetals
  • · Computer Modeling of Mechanical and Physical Properties of Metals
